Real Life Distractions

The hardest recall of all for most puppies. Once your puppy is able to recall away from distractions, you can teach them that dogs, birds and anything they are into are just another one of those distractions. Your relationship with your puppy and the rewards you choose are important here so try not to rush this stage, this will often take the longest. 

When and where: initially when first seeing the distraction, call your puppy, reinforce and then let them go say hello. You can also practice calling away once they’ve said hello and then gradually build up to more exciting parts of the interaction.
