teaching recall to a bull x

Recommended Posts

Any opinions on how to improve recall with a bull x pup he will come to call perfect some times but other times chooses not to hear me is this just a pup thing that he will grow out of or does his recall need more work , pup is 9 months.

He's going through the the teenager stage where his balls have dropped lol

Just keep on with the basics, if he's reasonable normally he'll be ok, just keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn't get too headstrong. HTH.

Cheers, D.

No different than most other lurcher pups.

And like any other lurcher type, a good bull cross can be biddable and well trained...

Put a shock collar on the cnut, and crank it up 😂only joking, he's young still, keep your calm and carry on doing what your doing with him....... I find walking away from them, gets their attention 👍

See my other posts on recall training ;)

Most involve wires and a power source but they work :)

Too add; I'm a firm believer that when you call your pup in, it should piss itself and collapse. It builds character when they're older ;)

When I went through this with my dog, I made a flirt pole out of a bamboo cane, some thin rope and a small piece of sheepskin rug. Then I got an acme 211.5 whistle. 

Start in the garden, peep the whistle and work the flirt pole. Won’t take long to click, then take it from there over field etc.

Would take mine down the beach, let him get carried away playing with dogs then give a few quick peeps and he’d be flying to chase the lure. Worked for me anyway mate. Play is the best reward

Cheers lads he is out every day with other dogs so there is a good bond there, I suppose I can’t expect too much from a pup and just let him be for now, any one know how to post pictures on this?

Just let him be a pup. But get him used to other dogs and livestock from day 1. 

Good luck
