Rainy day dog game – Do you have a dog that does not come when called? In fact, the dog thinks it is all part of the fun when you chase it? I have one of "those" dogs. When stuck inside, I like to play the come-touch game. First. in a contained space, I build the dog's confidence that I am not trying to trick him by laying out a few treats for him to find which are close to me. Next, I get him to come to me by showing him a treat in my hand. When he decides to come, I give a big YES first and then lots of praise as he is coming my way. Next, I put him in a sit-stay and leave the room. I then call him to me with the same Yes and a treat. Training takes time and patience, but it is worth the effort. Do you have a tip to share?
