So when you’re teaching your dog to come, you’re not necessarily thinking, “I need to get my dog to choose me every single time over whatever it is he’s looking at.”
That would be unrealistic.
Instead, you want to be thinking about, “I need to make the recall. I need to get my dog running to me so valuable/so thoroughly enjoyable/so positively associated/so much reinforcement history, that recall stands a chance against chasing the squirrel.
Against going off and hunting for that sniff… against whatever.
My objective is to get this recall as valuable as I possibly can to stack the deck in my favor.
