Basics to Observe when Training your Puppy to Come

• No matter the puppy’s age the first thing you need to do is create it in her mind that the best thing she can ever do is to respond and come to you when called. Whenever she passes these initial tests, always do things to send a clear message that you really appreciate that level of obedience. You can do this through smiles, affection, praise, treats or play.

The Dont’s

  • Don’t call your puppy over to something she dislikes like bathing, scolding or clipping her nails. In case you want to do something unpleasant, always go to where she is. It should be etched in her mind that whenever you call her it is for something exciting.
    • Avoid making an excessive repetition of your call cue. For example if you say the word ‘come’ 10 times without her response, then just stop it. Persisting under such circumstances only teaches your dog to ignore you.
    • Have a good sense of timing and make sure you only call her when you are sure to get her attention. If she’s playing or engrossed in some other emotional activity, chances that she will ignore your calls are almost assured. So avoid calling her at such moments.
