Ep #9: Pt. 2- (transcript) How to Teach Your Dog to Come When Called: Top Trainer Lisa Lyle Waggoner Breaks down her 12 Rules to Rocket Recall

Enjoy this fantastic part 2 of my interview with top trainer Lisa Lyle Waggoner as she shares her 12 key rules to teach your doodle to come when you call!  

Teaching your doodle recall, or coming back to you when you call, is giving your best friend a vital and life-saving skill. A Rocket Recall can save your dog from a tragedy in traffic, getting lost away from you, or approaching something dangerous or lethal. Begin to learn easy-to-follow methods that let you say goodbye to the embarrassment of calling your dog and getting no response, and hello to recall training that's fun and effective for you and your dog.

On this episode, learn the foundation of expert recall training during my interview with a professional dog trainer, founder of the Cold Nose College, and author of the new book The Original Rocket Recall™.

On part two of our interview, Waggoner goes into helpful detail on her 12 Rules of Rocket Recall.  These include topics like:

  • What if my dog ignores me when I call?
  • Should I scold my dog if they don't come right away?
  • Why should I pick a new cue word if I already tried to teach “come” or “here”
  • Why don't treats work when I train my dog?
  • How to get my dog to focus on me outside and how do I get my dog to come every time?
  • The best recall words to use when training my dog to come when called?
  • Why is my dog not coming when called or why does my dog ignore me when I call him?
  • How do you train a dog to come without treats?
  • How do I get my dog to pay attention to me outside?
  • What do you do when your dog won't come or how do you discipline a dog that doesn't come when called?

oh hey there!

I’m Corinne, The Doodle Pro™


I get it.  You’ve tried training your doodle with what worked well with other dogs or for other trainers. 

(Maybe you’ve noticed that didn’t get your doodle as calm or happy as you hoped.)

That’s why The Doodle Pro™ does things differently.

All of my training methods are positive, research-based, and doodle specific. When should a doodle get their first grooming? How do you stop a doodle from barking? How can I stop my doodle from jumping on guests? When should I get a second dog? How do I help my doodle with separation anxiety?
