Puppy Training 5 Tips To Remember When Teaching The Come Command

by Avrina Ware

1. Use it sparingly. When you overuse ?Come?, puppies stop paying attention. When your puppy understands the command, avoid using it all the time. Say it infrequently and make it extremely rewarding.

2. Do not chase your puppy if he does not respond. Practice on-lead for now.

3. Never call for negatives. If you have to groom, bathe, or isolate your puppy, do not use ?Come.? Also avoid using it when you are angry. You will only scare your puppy out.

4. If your puppy runs away from you, do not repeatedly call or correct him.

5. Use a different command to bring your puppy inside. Coming in from outdoors is a big drag, no more fun than being left alone or ignored. Using the ?Come? command when you want to bring him in makes it a negative command. Instead, pick a command like ?Inside.? Start using it on-lead when bringing your puppy into the house. Quickly offer a treat or ball toss.

When puppy training many dog owners make the mistake of giving commands in long sentences that only another human being would understand.

In his lifetime a dog comes to recognize many words, but he can be a well-trained, obedient pet by knowing just a few. He must know: "Come!," "Out!," "Stop it!," "No!," and "Down!" To them, add "Walk?," or "Want to go for a walk?,"

The most important word is his name. You may decide what you will call your puppy before you get him, or his name may come out of the blue, but do not delay choosing it.

In puppy training, building confidence means knowing what you expect from your pup.
