Can really sink their teeth into them All the way up to their gums and that Helps scrape away plaque and tartar Basically the same way your toothbrush Does they’re safe nutritious and made With high level protein so they taste Great and they’re easy to digest there’s Even a grain free option too chestnut Loves the grain free ones and they’re All made in the usa i’m gonna have a Link in the description so that you can Get yours at pepflow chestnut your Breath smells so much better now let’s Get to work chestnut’s only 12 weeks old And you know there are some advantages To teaching a younger dog that’s under Four months or so to come to you when You call them relative to an older dog That’s because dogs this young like to Stay close to you more than they might When they get just a little bit older so Take advantage of that also they Probably haven’t really formed the habit Of running away from you yet let’s keep It that way this is a really good time To convince them that coming to you Always results in great things the first Rule of teaching your puppy to reliably Come to you is to make sure they’re Never in a position to disregard your Request so how do we do that we control Their environment at all times during The first year of training which means You should be able to get to your puppy

100 of the time even if that means Attaching the leash to you you can’t run Away because i have you on leash notice That chestnut is on leash right now even Though i’m inside so that i can easily Get to him i’m gonna have a video in the Description that’ll give you an overview Of how to adequately control your dog’s Environment at all times if you’ve Accidentally slipped up on sufficiently Controlling your dog’s environment you Might find yourself in a position where Your dog can get away from you if your Dog gets away from you it’s your fault Not theirs just do everything you can to Keep it from happening again it’s for Their own long-term well-being and Safety that we do this right first You’re going to want to reliably teach Your dog how to come to you while inside Your house under relatively distraction Free circumstances make sure that you’re Using a treat that your dog absolutely Loves today i’m using dehydrated turkey Treats but you could use something like Boiled chicken i bet your dog would love That first you’ll need to confirm that Your dog will sit or lie down or Whatever they’re good at for a treat see That indicates that they’re not too Heavily distracted now if they were too Distracted to take an amazing treat that They normally love that most likely Means you’re asking them to do too much

Too soon or under circumstances that are Too distracting chess that’s a pretty Happy dog overall and i think there’s a Great chance that he’s gonna come to me If i just act fun let’s find out come on Chestnut come on come on good good job Oh you’re so good try using a High-pitched inviting voice and even use A toy that they really love to entice Them you know squeaky toys can be really Great for this because they make that Fun sound that most puppies can’t resist And if you’re feeling like it’d be Really animated now if your dog were a Little bit more nervous you would want To be a bit more low-key when you do This even if you’ve got to teach your Dog to come to you at the short distance That’s fine come on even if they crawl To get to you i’ll take that too oh That’s excellent buddy you’ll find that Getting down to your dog’s level like This should also help tremendously dogs Are more likely to come to you and they Can easily see your face come here Here you go good oh look at that he’s so Polite you’re acting more like an English cocker spaniel than an american One you know they’re polite and there’s No better way to really get your dog Super enthused about listening to you And coming to you when you call them Than to get them playing with you that Really is the secret if your dog is the

Type that enjoys playing of course not All dogs enjoy playing with you so That’s why using a really good food Reward can get you there as well just Depends on you and your dog’s Personality a moment ago when i was Using treats to get chestnut to come to Me he was walking very nicely to me and That was great but now if he sees this Toy he comes running to me so use what Really makes your dog excited now look There’s going to be times when you call Your dog and they don’t come to you and That’s pretty normal but even if you Find yourself discouraged always keep Your tone somewhere between neutral to Upbeat even if you’re busy or even upset A little bit who could ever get upset With you though as your dog starts Coming to you say something like come Here so that they begin to understand What come here means like this Hey what’s up Come here good boy Yes come here that’s good so chestnut’s Doing pretty well right now but what Would i do if he wasn’t really into the Toys or i couldn’t motivate him to run Towards me because i had a treat for Example in that case try luring your dog With an exceptional treat like this hey What’s this What’s this Over here very good sometimes you just

Have to make it really really easy for Your dog nice job that was excellent the Farther away that your puppy is from you The more challenging you might find it Is to get them to come to you shorten The distance if necessary in early Training dogs require a smaller training Bubble sometimes you just have to make It extra easy for your puppy then either Lure them or better yet see if they’re Feeling peppy enough to chase you once You get their attention puppies love to Chase and this gets them enthused about Running to you chestnut so chestnut’s Not responding to me right now you see That i’m calling him but i’ll bet you if I shorten the distance a little bit That’s likely to give me a success come Here Come on yes you see that Right there so dogs are really sensitive To how far away you are from them and That’s okay that he’s going right back Let’s practice again hey chester Chestnut Hey Come here come on Okay It’s not working this time i’m going to Get even closer I mean if you’ve got to get an inch away That’s okay in the beginning look at That see that very good oh you’re so Smart be really understanding of the

Fact that your puppy’s only been on this Planet for a short period of time in This case 12 weeks i mean how much did You understand in 12 weeks right if this Fails and your puppy isn’t coming to you When you call them just go and pick them Up or gently escort them back to the Point from where you were calling them And keep practicing they’ll get there Soon enough as long as you don’t give up If your dog comes to you and you haven’t Asked them to try to find some way to Acknowledge that you love that they did That reward any initiative on your dog’s Part even if it’s an accident i didn’t Even call you when you came to me when Should your dog start coming to you Reliably without treats hey not so fast Since you have to teach your dog how to Come to you in dozens of different Circumstances like when it’s dark when There are fireworks or exciting animals Around or when there’s a barking dog That surprises them on a walk you want To be sure to use those high value Rewards like play and food every time You change up variables like this resist The temptation to phase out rewards too Quickly and exciting places only time And lots of practice gets most dogs to Reliably come to you anytime anywhere The first major distraction that your Dog is likely to encounter is just being Outside instead of your living room

Those exciting smells sounds and sights May prove too much for your puppy at First training puppies requires patience Puppies haven’t really experienced a Whole lot yet and they’re going to be Very curious about all of the Interesting things around them teaching Your dog to come to you is one half of The equation the other half is showing Them this new world that they’re living In and being very tolerant every step of The way let progress not perfection be Your guide look how different this Surface is compared to a carpet you’re Asking your dog to do something under Very different circumstances when you Ask them to do it outside we want to Instill in them early that just because They’re interested in something doesn’t Mean they can run after it but also make Sure that you’re providing them with an Outlet for their curiosity too give them Plenty of time to just check the world Out the more real world life experience You can provide for your puppy the Better now if your dog’s a little bit Older or you’re ready to go to the next Level with your come when called Training i’m going to have a video in The description that’ll do exactly that Click thumbs up for chestnut be sure to Subscribe to my channel and get your Greenies dental treats at petflow i’ll Have a link below thank you to our
