Protection Sports All Star & Pro Dog Trainer, Oscar Mora of Elevated Canine Academy, shows us how to teach your dog recall.
Using a form of operant conditioning, Oscar is creating a positive association with the act of going away and coming back. He uses markers, verbal commands used to alert dog that their action is the desired behavior and a reward is coming, to communicate with the pup... Ryka the Belgian Malinois Oscar creates a recurring loop and as pup begins to understand this action, he adds distractions. The decoy first has treats in his hands, then he lures the pups to distract, and then distracts by building drive. "Go" sends the pup away, "Yes" marks desired behavior, Pay BIG when pup does the wanted behavior. Start inside with little distractions. Use a small, easy to pass treat that is visible to your pup.
