Overusing COME

Do not get in the habit of calling your dog every thirty seconds. That's one way to ensure that he'll ignore you. Use other directions to get his attention, like NAME, LET'S GO, INSIDE, or BALL. For example, when you need to turn around or head back to the house call out INSIDE or LET'S GO to highlight your movement, rather than saying COME. Call him to you no more than twice when you're walking. Initially end each exercise with a release so that your dog doesn't see COME as the end to your fun.
