The Pup Cup – Week One – The Starting Point!

It’s heating up in our playrooms this week and we’re ready to show you the results from week one. It was a great week as the handlers worked hard on recalls.

What are recalls? Our super tough handlers will call a group of dogs from more than 6 feet away. Dogs should respond within 3 seconds of being called and come over to the handler. We’ll then score them based on the percentage of dogs assigned to the handler that come to the handler.

It’s one of the most important lessons a dog can learn according to ASPCA. A well learned dog can enjoy certain freedoms with you other dogs cannot. Like being able to go on a hike or walk with your dog returning immediately when called. It’s just one of the many things we do here to keep your dog on his or her paws.

Look at these awesome scores.
