LOL magic recall I think it goes something like this: - Youâ€™ll never get a reliable recall with R+ - I have a reliable recall with R+ - Sure, with no distractions, but can you call your dog away from a squirrel? - My dog doesnâ€™t chase squirrels, squirrels climb trees and he knows that. He chases rabbits though, and yes, I can call him off a live chase. - He must not have high prey drive. If he had a real prey drive you couldnâ€™t use R+ - Actually his high drive makes him easier to train R+ - Well you have a biddable breed. - Heâ€™s a mutt. etc. etc. etc. Its the â€œyeah butâ€ argument. â€œYeah butâ€ your dog is a herding breed with magic recall. â€œYeah butâ€ your dog is food driven. â€œYeah butâ€ you have a biddable breed. A friend of mine once said â€œI could teach my dog to ride my horse side saddle while smoking a cigar and it still wouldnâ€™t be enough for these folks.â€ And you know what? She was right!
