In this week’s AbsoluteDogs TV Episode, we discuss:
Where is your dog’s favourite place to be when out and about? Do they hang out by your side, or do they prefer to spend their time across the next field, finding their own fun?
In today’s episode, we’ve got some SUPER cool games for you that are not only going to ensure your dog loves STICKING CLOSE to you, but they are also going to give you some awesome ways to level up your dog’s RECALL!
These fab foundation games grow the absolutely VITAL concept of PROXIMITY and they have a BIG influence on whether your dog walks nicely on lead without pulling, whether they not only come back when called, but ENJOY their recall cue AND these are games that make OFF-LEASH FREEDOM super easy and super fun for YOU and your dog!
So what games are we talking about? Let’s get to it!
1. MIDDLE This is THE game to teach your dog that coming in CLOSE is the BEST PLACE to be! It’s also a place of safety and somewhere you can recall your dog to ensure they are kept out of harm’s way in an emergency! Want to learn how to teach Middle? Check out this super cute video of baby Gorse playing her first games – you can find Middle at 2:33! https://youtu.be/n50kI4FtX6s
2. SIDE This super game is a different take on Middle. It works the same in practice and you can teach it the same way! Side is great for teaching your dog to match and mirror your movements, to be aware of where you are at all times AND creates immense value in hanging out with you, even when the environment around you is a little crazy!
3. LEG WEAVES This game is such a favourite of ours! It’s a HUGE confidence booster AND it truly brings the JOY for your dog – showing them that YOU are the VERY BEST deal so they don’t even look twice at the environment! With these fantastic games, you WON’T need to catch or capture your dog after a walk – they COME TO YOU! In fact, you probably won’t be able to get rid of them – how cool is that!
