Training a Dog to Come-How a Good Recall Can Save Your Canine’s Life

Recalls are SO Important by Marilee Cole, Cheeky Dog Obedience Training

Is the bunny, the ball, the kid on the bike or even worse the busy street ahead more interesting than you ? Training a dog to come (or recall) may be the most important behavior you teach your dog.  NEVER punish your dog for coming to you.  You want to be the most important thing in the world to your dog, so coming when called should always be positive.  Use an upbeat tone when you call your dog and make your dog the most awesome dog there ever was when he does come to you !!

Let’s think about this… you are running around having a great time and you are being called to come in.  You know the fun will end.  Would you want to go? Hmmm, probably not… entice your dog with a squeaky toy, or a bouncing ball or try running and have your dog chase you – make it a game.

Basic dog obedience is very important and training a dog to come could save your dog’s life.  When you train your dog to come, teach him in a way so that he learns that coming to you is the most important and enjoyable thing to do.
