Ok so I'm practising recall with pup for half an hour on nearby field today and I need;

Collar & lead
Harness and long line
Gloves
Clicker, whistle and treats
HG toy as a reinforcement
Poo bags
Kitchen sink
Suitcase
Sherpa

Seriously it'll be weeks before I go out remembering everything, in fact even writing this now I've probably forgotten something!

What are the gloves for???

Sherpa would be handy, might add that to my list.

To stop hands being hurt by longline (think cheese wire ;)

I was told you leave the long line trailing on the floor and stand on it when needed and walk along it to retrieve your errant hound! I have used it in this way and it saves your hands.

I used to go out with

Collar & lead
Poo bags
Treats

That was it. My dog is a beautifully behaved pooch who completed his bronze, silver & gold Kennel Club in two years. Hang in there, there will be light at the end of the tunnel. grin

I ditched the longline in favour of a couple of £5 notes in case I had to contribute toward people's dry cleaning bills.

Have to admit after using it the way its meant to be used for 2 mins she spent the majority of time right next to me playing tight with it and getting us in a right mess ah well will try again after lunch
