01.1 -- Training Your Dog: Come, Release word, Sit --

Session One Come:

1. Hold the leash in your right hand and step 5 feet away from your dog.

2.Wait until your dog looks away, and then say “Come,” immediately followed by a quick "Pop and Release" on the leash.

3. As he turns toward you, praise him enthusiastically and walk backwards while reeling in your leash.

4. Praise and reward when he catches up to you.

5. Continue steps 1 through 4, for 5 minutes. You may find your dog begins turning toward you when you go behind him.When this happens, say “Come” and repeat steps 3 and 4. Come when called will soon become a fun game!

  • Always keep your dog on a loose leash, as a tight leash will hinder the learning process by controlling your dog instead of teaching him.
  • If the leash becomes tight, extend your hand one foot forward to create a loose leash, then give your "Pop".
  • If your dog does not respond to the "Pop", repeat the sequence making your next "Pop" slightly stronger. Repeat until your dog responds to your command.
  • A calm and relaxed owner encourages a calm and relaxed dog. Always make your training fun and relaxing. Step behind dog keeping a loose leash. “Pop and Release,” then walk backwards. Reel in your leash. Praise and reward.

    Release word: This word tells your dog when it is appropriate to break the command he was performing. Teaching the Release: Wait until your dog has performed a command, and then say your release word ("Free,” "Break,” or "Release") using an upbeat tone of voice. Encourage him to get up and play with you.When released, your dog may relax or play peacefully. Do not let go of your leash when you release your dog.
