When you call me, I’ll be there!
Only use your dog’s name for something good, something that HE thinks is good. When he DOES respond when you call his name say “YES” marking the instant that he looks at your face then hold out a reward for him He will quickly pick up that the faster he looks to you when you say his name – the quicker he gets a reward. Once your dog is doing this reliably – start to do it every other time, sometimes he just gets “good boy!” but sometimes he gets “YES!” and a treat! When you’re needing to get your dog for something he doesn’t think is fun (crate time, nails trimmed, ears cleaned etc) just get him… don’t use his name! Tip provided by Cindy Mauro.
