    Puppy Training Series: Teaching Come

    Puppy Training Series: Teaching Come

    This is the final installment in our puppy training series, teaching puppy recall (come).

    Todays Lesson:
    Make sure you have a good sit, down, and stay before expecting a good recall under distractions. DO NOT call you puppy to you and punish them or make them do something they don’t walk like go to crate, etc. Use high value food reward3 Types of recall
    Place puppy in stay, release them with an “ok”, then call them to you with “come” - be energetic and use high pitch voice. Use a long lead, I use 30’ leash, allow puppy to go to end of the lease, and practice calling them back “Dixie, come” while using a slight tug on the leash.Try a restrained recall where you distance your self from the puppy while someone holds the puppy back, because they will follow you, and do the recall “Dixie, come” as the other person lets the puppy go. Recall outside with a lot of distractions will take a lot of time, be patient. Practice makes perfect. 3-5 minutes a day.Applications

Excellent content!! Highly recommend!

I am a certified professional dog trainer and also run a nonprofit dog rescue. This is a really fabulous podcast!I’ve been enjoying listening and have been sharing with my clients, our adopters and also Fosters. This podcast is especially needed due to all the people who have adopted or bought dogs during the pandemic.
