Zoe is a 9 month old Dachshund
Zoe is very energetic & playful but disobedient because she never went with her mum through obedience training. Biggest problem for Zoe’s Mum is that Zoe never* comes to her if she calls.
We have just started training with Zoe. She is a very good student and already making big progress. Her Mum is also learning a lot and practices with all of the exercises regularly with Zoe.
Tips for teaching the ‘Come’ command
When you start to practice the ‘come’ command keep your dog leashed so that he will not learn to ignore you when you cal. If the dog doesn’t come to you ,very gently pull it toward you with the leash
Whenever your dog comes to you, be nice.
Use a happy tone of voice and not a threatening or high pitched one to encourage the dog to come.
Never call a dog to come for anything it sees as unpleasant – such as cleaning its ears or clipping its nails. In this situation, Go and get the dog. Otherwise the dog will think it’s being punished for coming to you
Back up or run in the opposite direction when calling your dog.
After your dog comes to you, touch his collar first before you reward him with a treat.
Otherwise the dog may develop the annoying habit of playing catch – coming towards you and then moving away, just out of reach!
