The Game Plan:
1 Make an attention noise, and click as your puppy comes towards you, then feed your puppy in front of you.

2 Make and attention noise, then say your recall, and click the puppy for running to you, then feed your puppy in front of you. Click and feed your puppy for continuing to stay with you.

3 Say your recall, click your puppy for running to you, and then feed the puppy in front of you. Click the moment the puppy is running the fastest when she comes to you!

Problem Solving
Try different treats (we are using boiled chicken- a tasty and healthy treat for young puppies)

If the puppy is reluctant to come, run backwards, crouch, make exciting noises, pat your legs, or sit sideways.

Try a less distracting location

Use a long line attached to a harness for safety (NEVER attach it to a collar- it could cause severe neck injuries

    Recalling my puppy was sooo easy. Recalling her as an adolescent is a horror :'-D

    We already messed up with this 🙁 . My Sheltie (6 months olde) stopped coming reliably after a couple of months. Can I start over with this basic training like in this video with the same cue "come" or should I change the cue to something else? She knows what "come" means but refuses to come when she knows that we're going home…

    what if the puppy is too cute and keeps distracting the trainer?

    Thanks for this!  I used this method to teach my border collie puppy Zoe her first command.  She picked up on it right away.

    What if your dog doesn't bolt towards you like in the video but rather jogs not very fast. He comes to us but slowly and were using hotdogs,cheese,sausage as rewards. thanks!

    This type of footage is the reason why I relax and watch Youtube. They continuously cause me to grin. BUT a large amount of families are slowly but surely KILLING their pet dogs – without realizing it. The shit companies insert into dog food will cause varieties of cancer and tends to make pet dogs pass away young. I learned the tough way when my doggie passed away at 5. To conserve your pet's life make sure you have a look at Double Life Dog Diet (Try looking in Google.)

    I'm a sucker for doggy movies on Youtube. I normally laugh my ass off. HOWEVER a large number of pet owners are little by little KILLING their family dogs!!! The crap dog food companies put into dog food generates cancerous cells and makes dogs pass away early.. To avoid wasting your pet's life you ought to pay attention to Double Life Dog Diet (Google it.)

    Hi what's the best treats to feed? I got my 11 week westie "coachies" and he gets very hyper after training. Thanks for the vids.

    It is never too late to train your dogs! If they do not listen every time you ask them something, try to figure out how to get your dogs to want to listen to you. Kikopup has many good tutorials, but there are other ways in which to teach your dog obedience behaviors in a positive manner that will also help your dogs learn what you want them to do. If they do certain behaviors on cue at mealtimes, it should be easier to help them do those behaviors in other contexts.

    Hi Kikopup, the phrase 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks'. Would you say it's true? Orall old dogs can be retrained? I have a one year old golden and a 9 months old lab girl. They did learn some commands but only effective when meal times. I want them to listen evert time. Is it too late to retrain them?

    Such great videos!

    Whoops, I didn't realized she pointed it out only a few seconds later.

    I love 1:52, so excited.

    I think initially you shout come when he is running towards you as this makes the dog understand what come means, if your dog doesn't come do not keep shouting the word but get his attention and when he does run to you say come, slowly the dog learns what is expected and should come on command.

    thankyou so much ! your tricks are the best and THEY WORK with my two ,3 month old labrador retrievers ! 🙂

    Hi Emily(or anyone),I have a question:I don't understand the psychology of saying the verbal cue AS the puppy is coming towards you(After the attention noise).When we add verbal cues for other behaviors,such as "sit",we say the cue first and then provide the visual cue.After several trials,the puppy learns the verbal is predictive of the visual.If you've made the attention noise,and the puppy is running toward you,aren't they too distracted by running towards you to "hear" the verbal cue?
