You've taught your dog to come when called... but can't get them to do it when it actually matters
If your dog:
- Only listens if you have a treat in your hand
- Does great in formal training sessions, but blows you off in “real life” situations
- Comes when you call… but stays juuust out of reach so you can’t catch them
- Behaves perfectly at home, but acts like they can’t hear you outside the house
- No longer responds to the come command, even though they were amazing at it when you first taught it to them
The come-when-called cue (aka “the recall”) can be one of the trickiest things to get right. It’s a relatively easy command to teach, but it’s hard to train a dog to the point where they’ll listen when it really counts.
Turn the recall cue into your dog's new favorite word
You know how dogs usually have some magic phrase that really gets their attention? Like “wanna go for a walk,” or “dinner time,” or “do you want a treat?”
They hear this and they go “HELL YES I want a walk/dinner/treat!”
Wish you could get them to feel that way about their recall cue?
You don’t have to wish anymore.
With this course, you’ll learn how to teach your dog a recall cue they’ll say “hell yes” to: a SUPER recall.

Two live Q&A’s per month. Bring us your questions, and let us help you troubleshoot your canine conundrums. If you show up live to these sessions, we can chat about your specific issues and help you troubleshoot. This feature has previously only been available to coaching clients.
New content added every month. Mini courses and tutorials to help you make progress on a variety of canine issues.
The Rescue Dog Roadmap. The most common question we get about our big flagship program, Puppy Survival School, is “will this work for my new adult/teenage rescue dog?”
The short answer is… mostly, but not completely. Raising a puppy and a rescue dog are similar, but different experiences. What all you folks with a new rescue dog really need are bits and pieces of ALL our courses.
So we’ve created a new feature: the rescue dog roadmap. It’ll show you exactly which lessons to take from each course, so you can get your new dog settled in.
We’ll be adding more roadmaps over the next few months, to help you quickly make progress on a variety of canine issues.
This is for you if you want:

Super Recall teaches you the protocols for gradually improving your recall to higher and higher difficulty levels throughout your dog’s life. So it’s open-ended, and there is no set “graduation” point.
But I can try and fit this into more conventional dog-training-class language. So if you train about five days a week, 15 minutes per day, you could have:
- A solid beginner-level recall in 4-6 weeks.
- An intermediate-level recall in 8-12 weeks
- An advanced-level recall in six months to one year
You can get started on the first lesson with no equipment except some delicious training treats.
Eventually, you will need:
- A harness or regular buckle collar. For recall training, avoid any type of special “training” collar like prong collars, choke chains, head halters etc.
- A long-line. This is a training leash at least 6m/20ft long, preferably longer.
- A wearable treat pouch. This is optional, but highly recommended when you start training out in the world and don’t have a convenient place to stick your treat container. Unless you don’t mind stuffing smelly dog treats in your pockets.
Thanks for asking! Our training is reward-based. All the training exercises in Super Recall fall into two very broad categories:
1. Positive reinforcement. We teach the dogs exactly what behaviors we want, and strengthen those behaviors with a wide variety of reinforcers.
2. Classical conditioning. You’ll learn how to condition an involuntary emotional response of “HELL YES!” when your dog hears the recall cue.
Remember Pavlov’s dogs, who automatically started drooling when they heard the dinner bell? That’s classical conditioning.
We don’t use: Punishers like collar corrections, leash jerks, spray bottles, loud noises, etc. Or ecollar training of any kind. To put it in nerdier terms, we don’t use positive punishment or negative reinforcement.
This is a self-study course. When you sign up, you’ll get immediate access to the whole thing, and you can proceed at your own pace. Each lesson consists of a video, and most have accompanying text.
You can go back and rewatch previous lessons at any time.
