Default Sunny --- and Recall

Ok, it's one thing to discuss how to train for this and that, and to brag about how great our poodle is doing while training...............well, I had the opportunity to test his RECALL last night. I have a flexi leash and when I first get home, it is dark, city streets, etc., he is raring to go and runs out through the courtyard and usually I run with him......well, we turned onto the sidewalk and the flexi came out of my hand and my heart dropped. He will bolt, if scared, which is why I have been working so diligently.....so, as he ran the leash followed him on the flexi (which is enough to scare some dogs in and of itself). I immediately yelled, FRONT, and that little guy stopped.... stood there...looked at me and immediately walked over to me.....all while the leash was floundering all over. He promptly sat right at my foot and looked up with those precious eyes as if, "is this right?" Wow, I was amazed. The working does pay off.....don't give up!!! He got tons of praise and a treat and we were off on our walk.

GOOD JOB.....SUNNY.

Our dogs can really amaze us with the things that they can learn to share their lives with us. None of it could be possible without the diligent work that we put in to teach them what we want from them. My biggest frustration as a dog owner is that I don't have the time to do my job better. Great job with Sunny.

I know Sunny was just out on the town celebrating his fifth birthday, but his Recall really is something to celebrate too. So glad all those cold early mornings, nights and week end training sessions paid off as they did. Good for you both! IMO, Recall is the single most important thing anyone can teach their dog. So very happy to hear about your success! Attaboy Sunny!!

That is fantastic. I can only imagine how your heart must have been pounding as it was dark and you were on city streets - a challenging environment for any dog especially one that startles. All your hard work paid off big time.

Wow, amazing....you wanna come train a couple poodles for me?! Lol, but seriously, that's awesome! Sunny has come so far, I'm so proud of him!

Sometimes I think dogs instinctively know when they just HAVE to listen. One night I was walking to my car after work and Trev's leash was in one hand and Raven was in the other. I have to walk down a small side street to get to my car, and right as I walked out of the driveway I managed to drop Trev's leash. He didn't realize it and kept walking. (If he does realize I have dropped his leash he will stop) At the exact same instant, I heard a (speeding) car behind me, and my dog was headed for the middle of the street. I screamed "Trev STOOOP!" literally seconds before the driver saw him and hit her brakes...and if my dear, sweet poodle hadn't been listening, he wouldn't be with me today. He doesn't even know the meaning of stop...his cue is wait. I was so panicked I couldn't think straight and used the wrong word. But, somehow, he understood what I meant and turned back towards me and it saved his life...that car whizzed past just inches away from him. I will never understand why he responded to the wrong word...maybe it was the desperation in my voice, or the fact I said his name first. Needless to say, he got a big party for that. Funny thing is, he's the dog I have trouble with when it comes to listening, he's very good at turning off his ears.

Anyways, congrats on such a huge milestone for Sunny and happy birthday to him as well!
