Recall Long Line 10m
A long line can be an incredible tool to add to your training kit. Simply put - A long line is a long leash, that is most often between about 10 and 30 feet long. The long line can attach to your dog’s harness. The greatest thing about a long line is that they can be used in a number of diffrent settings where you want to give your dog more freedom of movement than a standard leash but you are still abe to ensure your dog’s safety, giving you peace of mind, and/or helping you work on training goals.
Trail Sniffers long lines are made from biothane which is a vegan leather substitute that is lightweight, waterproof, odor proof, antimicrobial, and easy to clean.
Please note: Long lines are not intended, and should not be used, as tie outs. They should also not be worn while your dog is unsupervised. While our biothane long lines are durable, they are not chew proof. Please for the saftey of your dog make sure you attach long line to a harness and not your dogs collar. There can be alot of force from a long line and it is important that the force is distributed equal by a harness and not just on a collar.
And always, please respect local leash regulations.

If your dog has been practicing an undesirable behavior for 2 years, do not expect the behaviour to change within 2 weeks. Often we can provide the information needed in our consultation to train the new behavior with no follow-up sessions, but practice is the key to success. Many behaviors will take multiple sessions. Expect the best outcome if you do the training too

Rewards are your dogs motivator. Think of it like it is a payment for a job well done. There are things everywhere in the enviroment that a puppy and adult dog will deem to be more interesting than we are. We need to give them a reason to want to check in with us or perform a behavior or cue.
