Training Your Dog To Come When Called
To teach your dog perfect recalls, use praise, practice, and more practice!
When it comes to learning to come when called, not all dogs are created equal. Some dogs learn the recall very easily. They seem to know instinctively that coming when called is to their advantage. Others will come when called most of the time, perhaps more reluctantly. For some dogs, however, coming when called is the most challenging behavior they will ever learn especially when faced with choosing between complying with the request and distractions like squirrels, cats, balls, or other dogs.
