I second the hand touch. It is Bailey's recall cue now that she's deaf and I worked so hard to make it strong that it's seriously... strong. She actually has a sticky chin target, but same concept.

She does the behavior in this video.

Not much to add...Long line is just about a must have and collar grabs are excellent.

One thing I do whenever possible is when the recall training gets to a level where I'm calling them off fun and play is to reward them simply by sending them back to what they had.

I made a lot of games for Pepper on top of the long line work. We played hide and seek inside and out, whoever found me first, got the piece of cooked hamburger I had ready. Mary and VIctor couldn't beat her to me after she found out the payout of THIS game. Making it fun only adds cementing behavior. By itself it's not enough but it sure doesnt' hurt to add it to your training regime.

If the only time you recall Baloo is at the dog park to take him home, yeah, I’d be dodging you too Practice recall, reward, then right back to fun. Rinse and repeat.

I typed up a recall primer somewhere, let me see if I can find it.

Thanks for all the advice, guys! Lots of good info here. I'll be starting with a long line... Just have to go buy the equipment.

Periodically put the lead on during free time too.

When Bodhi hit her "teens" she knew when a walk ended and wouldn't come back. I started recalling her randomly and putting her on the lead for a few mins, then letting her off again. Worked a treat.

We're using a whistle to recall Fred. Charged it like you would a clicker. He comes flying!!!

We had taught "come" to, in a similar way to the thread in the puppy forum (2 people, playing a recall game with praise and treats!).

Oh yes, brilliant!!

And even without the hiding, dogs do love a game of chase!! Before I start actual recall training - in fact the first thing I do with a new pup - I run away from them. I get their attention during play time and then I run and when they catch me we have a mini party.
