How To Get Your Puppy To Come At The Park

The simplest thing you would think is to get your puppy to come..theyPuppy Walk At The Park would come to your feet, then you reward them and that should be it.

For most people, that will not be the case…

Instead, we go off chasing our puppies or dogs throughout the park with leash in hands, shouting out their name as they run from us. At times it seems that the only way to get our puppies or dog to come is to get in the car and wait until they get tired and want to go home.

And yet it’s easy to train a dog to come. Anyone can do it.

You see the reason that it goes wrong is that there are some very simple and necessary steps that have to be followed when training your puppy to come, or it will go wrong very quickly.

One of the most important steps to keep in mind.

Avoid Chasing Your Puppy

The last thing you want to do is chase your puppy if they do not comeAvoid Chasing Your Puppy when called.

Sounds very simple but so many people do it. It goes something like this.
You call your puppy, they go the other direction, so you get closer to them by calling out their name.

And that’s a big mistake! Now you are chasing your puppy. It happens very quickly.

You start training your puppy to come to you and the next minute you end up chasing them.

So what options do you have?

The first thing to consider is to keep your puppy on a long line until you are sure that they will come.

That sounds simple enough…

If they do not come when you call them, then maybe you should not let them go off.

The second option is to turn and walk away from your puppy and then call them so that they then will chase you!

  1. “Avoid chasing your puppy” is very good advice, yet so many people do it! I love how you put this in here. A lot of people do not understand psychology and therefore do not apply the principles! The video was a nice touch as well – this will help many people learn when and when not to call their dog.

  2. I have two dogs, both are now old enough, but I do remember, one of them when she was a pup did run away when called. Eventually she learnt to come when called, but yes….you are right. Many people end up chasing their puppies. A bit of training initially goes a long way in enjoying a lovely relationship with your dog. Love your site by the way. Thanks for the tips.

  3. Great video. As I watched it, I remembered when our dog was a puppy. He’s pretty good now at three, but we did pretty much everything wrong at first. We chased him when he went too far (or where he wasn’t supposed to) and continued to call him when we should have known he wouldn’t come. It turns out it was my wife and I who needed to be trained.

    1. Hi Joe,

      That’s funny. Puppies can sometimes be a hand full. Good to hear your dog is doing very well.

      Thank you for your comment. I appreciate it.

  4. I think it’s a fundamental thing that people don’t realise. Dogs understand your behaviour more than they understand your words.
    Chasing after them only tells them that they are in control and making the decisions and this make them less obedient don’t you think? Are there any other ways that my own behaviour could unintentionally encourage disobedience?

    1. Hi Ryan,

      Yes you are correct. Dog’s instinct is that they are the pack leaders and will whatever they want to do. We need to learn how to train our dogs by becoming the pack leader ourselves to convince our dogs that we are the ones in charge.

      Thank you for your comment. Have a greta day!

  5. Oh man this brings back a lot of memories for me – I can still remember chasing various puppies I’ve had at different times, because they wouldn’t come back!

    But like you say its all a process of getting them to come and then rewarding them for coming, however i also agree that additional training from pros like the almighty Doggy Dan certainly helps 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Hi Marley,

      Thank you so much for stopping by and comment. I appreciate it.

  6. I loved this article! I know nothing much about dog training and of course would chase down the puppy! I always was amazed at people who could train dogs so easily. I have an older 3 legged Beagle now and don’t really need this as she doesn’t leave our side.
    Do you think this would work on cats? Maybe? I know they are just as smart as dogs but I don’t know if the same tactics work on them.

    1. Hi Cynthia,

      I believe cats are smart as well. I’m not sure using this method would work on training a cat but maybe it could. I think I would look in on that.

      Thank you for stopping by and comment. I appreciate it.

  7. I love dogs and love your article, i found this to be very interesting and informative, i am a proud owner of two dogs, and although they are not puppies anymore i can relate to your article.
    I am thinking of getting a third from rescue, i am thinking of giving a puppy a home and will take your information onboard, it is very helpful for dog owners.
    Will this work with all breeds of dogs?

    1. Hi Gareth,

      Doggy Dan created the online dog training to train all types or breeds whether young or old. The goal is to help all dogs.

      Thank you so much for your comment.

  8. This is so funny, we have a mini schnauzer that is a little over a year old now and this is exactly how we trained him to come. I didn’t even realize that I was training him haha… I would just turn and get him to chase me, eventually he put two and two together as I started adding “come” when I ran away. It worked! Getting your dog trained is very important, we did take our little guy to a pro. Everyone should have a well trained dog!

    1. Hi Scott,

      I agree with you. So funny how your little schnauzer had figured it out, he needs to chase you.

      Thank you for your comment. I appreciate it.

  9. I enjoyed this article.I have two terrier pups and I end up chasing them all the time when we visit the park. I am going to try and train them correctly on our next park visit.Really looking forward to it.Thanks for sharing this info.

    1. Hi Trevor,

      I’m glad you found this article helpful with your puppies. Let me know how that worked out for you.
