Come here!

When I call Kali, 15 mo, she always comes... but never comes all the way to me. She always stops about 15 ft away and goes "down"... and I usually have to walk and meet her on her terms, lol. So far, she's been pretty set on her ways. Suggestions?

Yes, reward her with food, right next to your body so she has to come all the way to you to get it.

Tried that. She's not treat motivated! Well, maybe I have to try getting a different snak. Something tastier

Definitely try something tastier, and what was suggested in our puppy classes was to come up with something they ONLY get for recalls. What kind of treats have you tried?

Is she toy motivated? Will she retrieve a ball or frisbee?

She has pretty good prey drive and loves playing fetch, but she does the same things with the ball when we play fetch! She only brings the ball 90% of the way. She listens when I tell her "off" and drops the ball.... but again, she doesn't come all the way and I have to walk up to her to pick up the ball...lol

I am having the SAME problem....!!!! We are a work in progress. I have been telling Jake no when he drops the ball far away and looks at me, then I tell him"get the ball" and "good boy" when he picks the ball back up and heads closer to me, then I start backing up making silly noises and encouraging him......we aren't there yet but baby steps! LOL! I hope that he begins to see that I will not let the ball be "active" unless he brings it to me. Like I said he was only coming 60% but now it's like 75% or 80%.
GOOD LUCK!

Well don't! If she doesn't bring the ball all the way back, game over. It sounds like she knows she doesn't have to, that you'll continue the game anyway.

Yeah, I guess I have to have a little more patience.

and let her know that you are in control, try walking the other way when she lays down, she will probably be confused on why your leaving

I've tried walking away, stood there with my back towards her for about 5 mins. She just stayed there. I ended up going back to get her. She won
