Ask Alecia: Teaching the Come Command

As you know, we’ve been co-hosting the weekly Hot Spot Tele-Training Series, talking with Alecia Evans of Walk In Sync . This holistic dog trainer has been providing weekly tips on one subject of interest to dog lovers. The first week we discussed holistic methods of housetraining, then loose leash walking. This week, we discussed one of the most important commands for your dog’s safety: the come command. A good recall is essential for keeping your dog safe any time he’s outside your home. Although Alecia had to travel out of town, we pre-recorded this week’s call so you can hear all of Alecia’s tips here. In this week’s call, we discuss:

  • How early can you start teaching your dog to come?
  • What is the #1 reason dogs take off?
  • What is the best way to lay the ground work for the come command?
  • Is it safe to allow a puppy to be off leash before they know the come command?

If you’ve missed any of the previous calls, you’ll find recordings at the above links.
