“I came to Carrie for help as although Frankie’s obedience was good, recall suddenly disappeared after his castration. This in a guide dog puppy is really important, no recall, no free runs as his new owner would not be able to trust him to come back. They wear a collar with bells whilst on a free run which enables his new owner to know where he is, not much help in getting him back though. The thought of him being unable to free run really upset me more than I can say. This is not something you can teach in class you have to be to be with ‘A Carrie’ on a one to one basis, we start by doing basic obedience so that he is focused on me, then we do Ping Pong, By Me etc. My lessons with Carrie have been very successful, he leaves to go into what we call ‘Big School’ this month where he will learn Traffic and the Harness. His new owner decides when to cross the road but a Guide Dog will stop them if it is not safe ie an Electric Car or a Bicycle, I have only taught him not to be afraid of heavy traffic and to travel on buses and trains. He has to learn to go off pavement when there is a parked car, to stop at crossings, to weave in and out of crowds and so on. Should all his training be successful he will be working by the beginning of next year ad thanks to Carrie will get his free runs with no problems.
Recall is important for all dogs especially when in a park, many children are frightened of them and I have to say when a big dog comes bounding towards me I am a little apprehensive myself for me and my pup” Lynne Knapp.
