Question: Can you really count on your dog to come when called?
Typical answers: “Yes, he comes most of the time, as long as he’s not too far away.” “Usually, but not if we’re outside, or if there are distractions.” “If I show him a treat, he comes right away!”
Translation: No, these dogs—like most—can’t be counted on to come when called. Sometimes they come, sometimes they don’t.
And it’s not their fault! Dog’s aren’t born knowing they should run right for us when we call them. And most of us are only beginning to understand how our dog’s think and learn.
It’s our responsibility to positively train our dogs so that they respond instantaneously to a recall cue, whether you’re calling him in for dinner—or stopping him from making a mad-dash into a busy road.
