Teach the COME Command

The hand signal for COME is a • motion with your right hand, similar to sweeping poker winnings off the table and into your lap. Your right hand starts shoulder height with arm extended fingertips. Sweep your hand toward the center of your chest.

Stand approximately two feet • directly in front of your dog with your dog in a SIT. Grasp the leash with your left hand with minimum slack between your dog and your hand. Give the hand signal and command COME simultaneously and then move quickly backwards, motivating your dog to COME. Stop the backwards movement and give your dog a SIT command. Praise, saying "good COME," and offer a small treat.
