Jenny loves being outside, but her recall is not solid, so today we headed out with the long line for some recall practice. The root problem with her recall is actually her lack of attentiveness. When she is focused on her handler she will come when called, but when she is focused on a critter all bets are off. Working on the Leave It command so she ignores or avoids the object or scent seemed to help greatly.
