Working on recall
I have been working on Rango's recall while we are on our walks. It goes something like this.
We work on our leash manners (getting pretty good) on the walk to our play area. Once we get there (couple hundred undeveloped acres of woods and farm land) then I let him off the leash so he can run and sniff a bit, just be a dog in general. After I let him off lead I will wait till he gets a bit away and call him back. He comes at a run, sits and then gets his treat.
So far its going good. HOWEVER sometimes he will be sniffing something and he is slow to leave it and come back.
Is the solution to keep him on a check line so I can correct him when he doesnt leave the object right away or is this something that will get better a his recall gets better??
