I am not clear what you are referring to unless it is the comment I just made on another thread? Are you asking about an 'emergency stop'?

yes in another thread you said that an emergency break was invaluable.

is it the same as an emergency stop?? if so how do you teach it??

for example if you want the dog to stop dead in his tracks and not continue doing what he was doing.

lets say we were playing outside and he was going towards a dangerous thing and you wanted him to just stop.

or if he was confronted by a skunk and you did not want him to peruse it. or if he got a hold of him and wanted him to break from what he was doing.

Having the leash on for control, communication and an emergency brake is invaluable.
I meant the leash is invaluable as an emergency brake.

The other things you mentioned are 'leave it', 'drop it', 'stop' instructions.

Hello Breeze,

I think an emergency recall is kind of like an emergency brake.
It is a rarely used but intended to stop all activity and get the dogs focus immediately.
It is a different word, and different reward than the come here command, or casual recall.
Maybe this would work for you.

yes this is what I meant.. I thought this is what tenderfoot meant
sorry if I missunderstood.

( I'll have to work on my word skills for me not the dogs)

re. emergency brake

Having a background in horses, WHOA came natural to me, along with a quick jerk of the leash. Now they stop if I say whoa even if they're not on the leash.
