It is critical that every dog know this potentially life-saving command.

2 Critical Dog Training Steps to Turn on A Dime and Come When Called
Develop a fast start: When you call your dog, he needs to take his eyes off the distraction and make eye contact with you.
Develop a fast, motivated run to you. You want your dog to run fast to you with speed and determination ignoring all distractions.
Tapping into your dog’s prey-drive is critical to a fast “come to you!”
The Video Below Shows You How To Train Your Dog to Come To You When Called
Here’s my 4 step “cheat-sheet” of quick tips as you follow along watching this video.
- Work on a fast start by motivating your dog to beat the leash tug
- Work on speed in the come by doing back-ups
- Add the sit. Once you’ve trained a fast recall, it’s time to add sit in front of you and wait to be released.
- Add distractions. Train in locations where you need your dog to come.
- Always work on a long line when training your dog outside.
- Make sure your treats are high enough in value to compete with the distractions
- Remember do the fast start and run to you for a week before you add the sit – praise and treat your dog for a job well done.
- Never train for too long on the come command. Quit leaving your dog wanting more!
Practice daily around the house as follows:
- Call your dog to you when you’re in a different room.
- Add family members and call your dog to each other while in different rooms
- Call your dog in from the back yard
- Call your dog in from the front yard
