The simplest thing you would think is to get your puppy to come..they 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 come 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!

Training your puppy to chase you is so easy when you know how…as you can see in the video. No chasing, no screaming, and the puppies come running.
Regrettably, very few people are shown these steps at puppy class.
However, Doggy Dan’s website shows you everything you could want to know about raising your puppy to a perfect dog. In fact, he has a video diary of his 1-year-old dog Moses from 8 weeks of age showing you exactly how to trained your puppy.
