Teaching Your Dog To Come

How do I call my dog and get her to come? Sometimes she comes, but other times she just runs away.

Teaching Your Dog To Come

Most dog training I have seen suggests you put her on a lead, long...and walk away from her, call her gently while tugging the lead gently toward you..saying "come here" as you do this..when she gets to you, use reward and pats and kisses and praise...do not ever be mean, impatient or yank her. Depending on her age, she just has to learn, like a young child..she will do this eventually

Teaching Your Dog To Come

That's good advice. Make it even more enticing by small pieces of treats. I had a hard time with my mixed lab. He was just stubborn. Now, even if he's barking at something, he'll turn around & run into the house. I don't give a treat every time now because he had to learn to come regardless. There might be a time when there's an emergency & I need him to come NOW. And he never knows when he's going to get a treat so he'd better not miss a chance! (12/16/2005)
