come when called

  1. Solid recall lacking

    Dog Training Forum
    My 2 1/2 year old usually comes to me very well. But tonight he took off, and was walking down the street, vigorously sniffing the ground, always staying 10 steps ahead of me. He usually always responds to my whistling or "here" command. Tonight there was zero response. I'm frustrated and want...
  2. Walker Coon Hound Off Leash

  6. Come when called, and selective hearing

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Does anyone have suggestions on how to correct selective hearing? Particularly for the command "come"? We live in the country, and let our 5 mo old lab/border collie puppy play offleash most of the time while we are outside doing yard work. In the house, while out on walks, or while playing in...
