Our trainer had us do this too! She called it puppy relay. We mostly did it to wear off all of that puppy energy, but it definitely helped with recall too! We did this in our backyard and over time we started to add some distractions. For instance one of us opening the gate and leaving the yard (which made Sonny want to follow) while the other called Sonny. Puppy relay is wonderful!
