Rewarding a good "come" with a treat, or more play

I also call my pup to me and then release him for more fun. A lot of times, "come" to a pup can signify "fun is over" and they resist. Try a few things to make obedience fun and motivating, and it should help. Call her, reward, then play more! Repeat a few times when you're outside with her.

Crating a puppy is ok as long as she gets plenty of exercise, training, and love when she's not crated. Very young puppies need to be let out every couple of hours for potty when they are crated for periods during the day and if crated at night. I try to avoid crating my dog often though, because he has too much energy, and boredom can lead to some very bad behaviors!

How have you tried to train it so far?

wolfy dog She may have a totally different idea what "Here" means than you. If you always call "Here!" when she walks away she has learned that that command means walking away. Go back to recall 101 and find another command for this behavior to make a fresh start.

Thank you

I will try that. She is 13wks old and is sweet but it's almost like she doesn't want you to know it. I know that sounds crazy but if she sees me looking at her while laying beside me she moves away. It's a little strange.
