However, I wanted to respond due to your saying "emergency recall word" is that a different word other than their name? Remy has NO recall whatsoever, and our trainer said we will work on that after we get her basics down.

I have three different ways of recalling mine. I use the come command, the front command, and only if needed the emergency word recall. I find that the front command works the best and is by far my favorite. For the emergency recall you pick a word(teacher recommended words like danger, alert, etc), you say this word, when the dog looks at you its given a very high value treat..you are to do this about 10 times a day and about 10 times in each session. Once they learn it, you have to practice it every now and then so you know that they remember it. As far as the dog darting, the wait command is great..it can end the darting out of the door, car, etc days
