Of course, it's not just the owner of 'Fenton' from the infamous YouTube clip of the Labrador chasing deer in Richmond Park; many dog owners struggle to manage their dogs, and the vast majority of people who need help have one simple but overwhelming problem: their dog won't come back when they call him or her. An international bestseller, this book is divided into three parts: 1. Preparation: all the information you'll ever need in order to prepare and support yourself and your dog as you work through the training programme, including information on how your dog learns, practical training with rewards and beyond training. 2. A detailed Recall Training Programme complete with exercises to work through. In other words, the 'how to' section of the book where you'll learn puppy recall; pre-recall for older dogs; basic recall; on location training and ultimately recall for life. 3. The problem solving section, where you can discover why you got into difficulties in the past and learn how to avoid making the same mistakes again in the future.
Enjoy your training journey, improve your relationship and have fun with your dog!

'I've no hesitation in recommending Total Recall to anyone setting out on training a puppy for the first time, or even the tenth time. It is a book that is likely both to change attitudes and lead to more sympathetic training, which is no bad thing.' Shooting Times
'This book explains everything you need to know about the recall, from how and when to effectively reward your dog, to keeping yourself motivated to keep up the training, as well as a series of progressive exercises. Checklists are included at the end of each stage to help you assess whether you are ready to move on to the next. There are troubleshooting sections covering problems such as your dog returning to you but not coming close enough to be caught, and how to detect early warning signings that all is not well with your recall.' Rating 10/10 Your Dog
'This is a detailed reference and guide to canine behaviour and dog training... with the inclusion of a helpful problem-solving section, nothing is left to chance.' Fieldsports
'The book's strength lies in clear, engaging writing and, in particular, in its structured exercises designed to build a recall from scratch'. Dogs Today
