TEACHING YOUR DOG TO COME

Most dogs and puppies are eager to be with their masters, so teaching them to come is not too difficult. A "teenage" dog is still more of a puppy and may think you just want to play and romp, so he may run back and forth. Let him play a little, then get down to business.

First, you will need to put a collar and leash on your dog if he is fairly active. Without holding the leash tight, stand a few steps away and call "come!" Praise him when he comes to you. You may even want to offer a treat to the dog a few times and praise him when he comes. When you repeat this exercise over and over, it will become natural for the dog to obey. As your dog begins to obey regularly to this command, remove the leash and cut back on the treats and praise. Praise him and offer a treat about every third time he obeys. Cut that back to more times in between and eventually no treats or praise. Your dog will learn to obey just because you command him to come.

The objective is to teach your pet to be a great, pleasant companion who will obey your commands. You, the owner, need to have authority over the dog. Keep in mind, however, that that dogs can become easily distracted, so be patient with them as you train them and keep working on the same techniques. Practice these techniques and you will be rewarded with a happy, healthy dog.
