Wow, sixty come commands? I don't think I would ever allow my dog to ignore me for that long.That's an easy one to answer -- always praise (lavishly) on a recall, even if it takes him thirty minutes to come back, and sixty "come" commands. I can't stress the importance of this enough.
Erm, I was using it as an extreme example, of the importance of rewarding the dog for a recall, not as an example of acceptable behaviour.Jean;1015 said:Wow, sixty come commands? I don't think I would ever allow my dog to ignore me for that long.
Ain't that the truth! That's part of what makes dogs such fun.vega;1048 said:What can work fine for a dog could be useless for another.
