that was Lexi's second command she learned. at first when she wouldnt come we'd walk over to her and then pull her over to where I was previously standing and in a stern voice said "i said come". then I'd walk away from her and ask her to come until she finally came and praised her generously so she knew that what she did was really good.
Have a small treat in hand then whenever your dog is approaching you say the word 'COME' and when she reaches you offer her the treat. After a while she will see that everytime you say come she is 'doing good'. (Treat no longer required)
I started by saying "sit" with a treat in my hand, then "stay", then holding out my hand while walking backwords and keeping focus on his face. If he moved toward me I would immediately stop and step right up to him to regain his attention. Then restart from "sit". This may take a lot of repetition. Then after a short distance say "come" and put your hands down and give a big smile. This will give him the impression you want to show affection and will entice him to come to you. When he does, give him the treat and lots of praise.
I put 'Lo's food in a cup, sat down with my computer, and when she was walking around but seemed bored I'd say 'come' and when she looked/turned/came, anything, I'd say 'yes' (think replacement clicker) and she'd speed up and get a treat when she reached me. I stretched it until she came when she couldn't see me, was barking at a noise, when playing a game.
For outside I paired 'come' with a short whistle blast and slowly stopped using the word until the whistle blast itself meant come too. Much easer for long walks that require many yelled recalls.
Benny's very finnicky. If he doesn't want to come, he won't.
To be honest, I can't even remember what we did. We gave up a long time ago on this one. I'm pretty sure we probably used liver treats that he used to love. At this point, we'd probably use Beggin Strips.
If he's bored, he'll probably be laying down. When we call his name, he'll look up with his eyes, and won't move his head if he doesn't have to. Very lazy!
If he's doing something, he'll stop and look at us. If he has a toy, he'll probably start growling, taunting us to chase him (he loves to be chased).
If you want your dog to come to you run away from them, calling as you go which encourages them to come towards/follow you. Just as they are getting to you crouch down with your back to them and they'll come round to your front. When they come round to your front to see you, tell them to sit, slowly and gently take their collar then treat.
We just used treats. shout come and every time he does it give him a treat and mahe a big fuss of him. Congratulating him with a happy high pitched voice reinforces the praise. Just make coming to you the the best thing in the world fro your dog. This has got to be one of THE most important commands your dog needs to learn. Once this is mastered the fun walks off the lead can. My dog is now 8 months old and we still train and renforce the come command every day. One day it might save his life. He's got to the stage now were if he runs off at full pelt he'll turn round if I shout come and return to me 99.9% of the time
I worked on the 'come' command at the dog park. It still is a work in progess, but I would let her walk away from me. And when she was not playing with other dogs, I would whistle, call her name, and say 'come.'
She would look up, realize she was far away from me, and then run towards me. While on her way, I would repeat, 'come.' And when she would get to me, I would give her a treat, or play with her and praise her and say 'Good Come.'
She is doing a pretty good job, but still is learning.
Hope everyone’s staying safe and healthy!
I’ve read some of the puppy training books (easy peazy, Zak George) and a cockapoo breed specific book.
The problem I’m having is that the books often conflict each other and the points are quite diffused leaving me unsure of what to...
I have a 5 month F1b cockerpoo named buddy! He is so clever and has been an absolute treat to train and live with baring one big issue RG.
He came to live with myself and my daughter at 8 weeks of age and I noticed then he would growl when I went near his food! I've had larger bread...
Let me start off by saying how much I'm in love with this little creature, she's smart, adorable and (sometimes) a lot of fun.
She's 11-weeks-old today, I picked her up when she was about 7.5 weeks (I know that's a little young). About two days after I got her home she started the biting and...
My 11week old cockapoo has settled in well. For the first couple of weeks my partner has been getting up to let my puppy out of his crate and had the toilet in the night. We’ve now started to share the load a little as I am not at work. When my partner does it, the puppy doesn’t make a sound...
My pup is currently being trained to use pads. He is let into our garden but only with very very very close supervision. We have small stones and he tries to eat EVERYTHING. What do I do? It’s exhausting!
I want to train him to use outside but he just can’t be trusted. Leaves. Grass. Stones...
