Des Moines Dog Boarding
When teaching ourin the Des Moines dog boarding facility we have found that a verbal command should always be clear and concise. When labeling a command the tone of your voice is important but more important is that you say the command in a level voice and always preface the command with your name. Your name and the command should sound like one word. The only exception is when using the command "Stay." This should be used on its own to avoid confusing the dog. Never repeat a verbal command twice. To teach any command like Come it vitally important that you make sure you dog can succeed. One way to do this is by controlling the environment in which you are practicing and also controlling his behavior. Never let your dog off the until you are fully confident that he will not run away. As you repeatedly practice you can length the and then repeat all the steps again. Once you have a good length on the and your dog readily turns away from things that he wants (a crucial part of teaching Come) and responds reliantly responds to your command. Then you can practice dropping the and letting your dog drag it. Never practice Come with your dog in an open area until you have thoroughly taught him in a enclosed area to avoid accidents. If your dog does run off then just put the back on and review. The effort, which you must put into this process, might seem overwhelming but it is necessary to ensure that your dog will know how to respond correctly under any circumstances.
Never let your dog off hisin a dangerous situation where he could cause damage to himself or others.
