The most crucial part of raising a dog is ensuring that he is obedient, and has good manners. So much as walking a dog down the street can be difficult if they aren’t well trained! Nobody wants to walk a dog they can barely control! We like to think that every owner means well, even if it sometimes means they overlook these vital areas. In this case, nobody should overlook training “come” as a command. It could save a dog’s life!

Think about it: everybody knows a person who has a dog that could greatly benefit from some basic obedience skills! We try to cover as much as we can in the realm of training. We have simple articles, like how to teach a dog how to shake hands: Training Tips: How To Teach “Shake Paw”.Training doesn’t have to be dull all the time! With so many tricks to learn, nobody should ever be bored with teaching their canine companion new tricks. There are also several in-depth articles on fun activities that build trust, and respect, between canine and handler. Like this one, for example, on the dog sport “Agility”: Pup Be Nimble, Pup Be Swift.

Today, however, we are going to be talking about a topic that is quite serious. No matter what skill level a dog is at, they should always have a strong “come back” call. This means that when a handler calls for their animal, he comes back promptly when called for. It’s called training “come”. This training can save a dog from being hit by cars, chasing after animals, or approaching strange dogs/humans. All of these are incredibly important to avoid! Although it isn’t difficult if there is dedication put into it, we can understand wanting a dog that can be a fast learner.

Running away can be highly rewarding for your dog. The feeling of freedom and the rewards he reaps while free, such as getting to greet other dogs and people, chasing after birds and squirrels, or even finding a tasty bowl of kibble left out for the neighbor’s cat can be reinforcing enough to have a dog salivating for his next opportunity to run.

In addition, if your dog is still intact, neutering can make a dramatic difference. Roaming behavior is decreased in 90 percent of male dogs that are altered.

However, the bottom line is this: Training is imperative for keeping dogs close while off leash. Exercising your dog before you train will make him more likely to relax during training sessions, and teaching him some basic behaviors will make him less likely to bolt once he’s off his leash.

To teach your dog heel, stay, and come when called, start in a low-distraction environment with your pet safely secured. As your dog reliably responds to these commands, you can move to areas with more distractions, such as people and other dogs. Keep your dog secured on a long line; eventually, you can graduate to a dragline, which is a slick rope attached to a harness. A dragline won’t catch on things as readily as a normal leash will, which gives your dog more freedom without turning him completely loose.
