Being able to call your dog back to you is the responsibility of every dog owner. Whether or not you keep them on a leash at all times, making sure they come when called is important. Here are 5 steps you can take to help your dog to learn to come to you when you call. Here is step #5.
5. Enlist the help of a friend
To keep increasing the distance, start by having a friend stand 10 feet away from you while you hold on to your dog’s leash.
Ask your friend to call the dog. Then lead your dog on the leash toward your friend. Once the dog comes, grab its collar, and as always reward them.
Keep repeating this exercise, adding more distance between you and your partner as you go.
