2. Always practice on a leash or long line until your dog is 9/10 times reliable, this allows us to teach the dog that only the correct response is acceptable
3. Motivate the dog with your voice, be excited and throw yours hands in the air as soon as they are heading towards you, then make sure to release them back to what they were doing ie running free, playing with other dogs or simply sniffing on a walk in other words don't always end the fun with COME.
4. Teach a new exciting command like the touch cue (dog touches your hand with nose) rather then just the boring 'come'.
Regular training keeps your dogs mind healthy and happy but it has to be fun!!!
*Of course there is many more secrets and steps but thats what dog training is all about!!
