At SF Pet Behavior Consulting, we recognize the importance of successfully training your dog to come when called. The "come" command can help keep your dog safe when off leash. If your dog wanders close to traffic, for example, knowing how to "come" can be a matter of life or death. In the following video, you will see three dogs. While only two have successfully mastered "come" when distractions are present, all three are clearly happy dogs! Though the Golden Retriever can use some practice with his recall, we hope his retains his joy while he practices "come".
