"Come Game"

A way I found useful to get my GSD to come is my family and spread out around the backyard and have treats and call "come" and praise her and give the dog one of the treats. Then someone else calls the dog. and keep that going. While your doing it don't call the dog in an order mix up who goes.

Re: "Come Game"

it is a great game! i read about it in a puppy training pamphlet i got when mikko was a puppy, and our puppy trainer suggested it as well. we started playing it before we even gave mikko his name, we said "puppy come," lol. but it is absolutely a great way to teach "come." mikko has a very sound "come" command and i believe playing that game really helped. i hope everyone with a new puppy reads your thread and plays the game!

Re: "Come Game"

I think this might be posted in the wrong section. Mods?

Anyway I do not know why I have not thought of this myself! A Duh! What a great Idea I think this would be also for newly adopted dogs to help bond with their new families.! I am going to pass this on to a couple of the larger families I am working with and their dogs!
