Hi, I live in outer East London and use the local Epping Forest to walk my 14 month old Golden Retriever. There were a few incidents involving Holly chasing small wildlife (birds, squirrels, etc) and ignoring recall. For the past 3+ months I’ve worked with Holly using Pippa Mattison’s Total Recall + training line + warm chicken but when she picks up a scent or a duck flies overhead she enters a parallel universe. Indeed on two occasions she was nearby but her lead trailing she took off. I’ve tried to read around the subject and I am currently working on her retrieving. I’m unsure what else I should do, whether my proofing practices are correct, whether I need help from a trainer or whether I simply need to persevere. However, I am concerned that the older Holly gets the more difficult will be the problem.
