To help reinforce the behavior of coming when called, we start by training with treats. This can also help your dog learn its name. Remember to keep your voice cheery and not to scold your dog for not coming.

We want them to CHOOSE the behavior and then we reward. DOWN is also a different command than OFF. Use DOWN when teaching your dog to lay down. Use OFF when asking your dog to get off the furniture or not jump on you. Your dog should already know SIT, EYE Contact, and NAME. As you read each of our training articles, you will see they all build on each other.
