Thank you.

I'll give it a try. She listens to everything but that one. I'm already using the treat rewards. I will try it. I normally use here when calling her to go outside which she loves so it's confusing . I do use it for crest too.

DJEtzel What has she associated you with calling her for? Do you call her when you put her in the crate, take her away from chewing on fun things, in from the yard, etc?

Grab some chewy, small, smelly treats. Let her know you have them.

Valla, COME - Treat
Valla, COME - Treat

- repeat 5 times

Let her get a little distracted for a MOMENT - "Valla!" (wait for the head turn, acknowledgement) "YES! COME" and treat when she gets those two steps back to you.

- repeat 5 times

Add in more distractions. Always wait for her to acknowledge you with that head turn and eye contact before cueing the word COME, or you will waste it and it will become meaningless. Mark that point EVERY TIME. IE; head turn - YES, GOOD GIRL, COME. Reward at every recall at this point. Reward for going into the crate, leaving the socks, coming in from the yard, following you on the leash.

Use a long line when you're outside so that you can reel her into you when she doesn't comply, so that she doesn't have the option of blowing you off.
