Off-lead work with Tom the rescue dog.

Cara rescued Tom through the Dogs Trust when he was 10 months old and was his fourth owner. He was a lively and strong young dog who had been passed from one owner to another, and his recall in particular was very poor.

We met up with Tom and his owner at the Woodland Trust and after an initial consultation we showed her a simple but very effective technique to use when dogs are off-lead and don't readily come back to you.

Within minutes he was off-lead, checking back and returning to find his owner.

Tom is now a mature dog. He is calm, happy and loyal, sticking close and always checking back. Occasionally, if his attention wavers, our simple technique still works to keep him on track.

What Cara said:

“Deb and Pam were brilliant. They taught me simple techniques and within minutes he was off lead, checking back and returning to find me. So simple, but so effective. Deb and Pam gave me the confidence to let him run freely and after just one session, the bond was created.

Tom is now 7. He is calm, happy and loyal, sticking close and always checking back. Occasionally, if his attention wavers, I still revert back to the technique I learnt to keep him on track.

Thank you for your wonderful support over the years”.
