Teach ANY puppy to come when called! – come recall training, come recall fun and games!

In this video you will learn how to teach your new puppy to come running to you when you call him. This is one of the most important cues you can teach your new dog. It is one of the first behaviors you should start training your new puppy as soon as you get him!

The Game Plan:
1 Make an attention noise, and click as your puppy comes towards you, then feed your puppy in front of you.

2 Make and attention noise, then say your recall, and click the puppy for running to you, then feed your puppy in front of you. Click and feed your puppy for continuing to stay with you.

3 Say your recall, click your puppy for running to you, and then feed the puppy in front of you. Click the moment the puppy is running the fastest when she comes to you!

Problem Solving
Try different treats (we are using boiled chicken- a tasty and healthy treat for young puppies)

If the puppy is reluctant to come, run backwards, crouch, make exciting noises, pat your legs, or sit sideways.

Try a less distracting location

Use a long line attached to a harness for safety (NEVER attach it to a collar- it could cause severe neck injuries

  1. Those puppies have gotten really big! I’m helping raise a litter of 6 puppies at the moment. Can’t wait until I can start teaching them cues, but for now we’re just doing paw and face handling.

  2. thank you for these videos! I just decided to adopt my foster puppy; he is a chow/german shepherd mix that is showing some concerning behavior (fear biting, for example) so we are starting clicker training to help with his socialization. these are helping a lot!

  3. You are awesome! Ive been looking for a way to train my 4 month old german shepard, and i think i finally found it! Please make more videos you rock

  4. Hi Emily(or anyone),I have a question:I don’t understand the psychology of saying the verbal cue AS the puppy is coming towards you(After the attention noise).When we add verbal cues for other behaviors,such as “sit”,we say the cue first and then provide the visual cue.After several trials,the puppy learns the verbal is predictive of the visual.If you’ve made the attention noise,and the puppy is running toward you,aren’t they too distracted by running towards you to “hear” the verbal cue?

  5. I think initially you shout come when he is running towards you as this makes the dog understand what come means, if your dog doesn’t come do not keep shouting the word but get his attention and when he does run to you say come, slowly the dog learns what is expected and should come on command.

  6. It is never too late to train your dogs! If they do not listen every time you ask them something, try to figure out how to get your dogs to want to listen to you. Kikopup has many good tutorials, but there are other ways in which to teach your dog obedience behaviors in a positive manner that will also help your dogs learn what you want them to do. If they do certain behaviors on cue at mealtimes, it should be easier to help them do those behaviors in other contexts.

  7. awesome, this is the next thing that my puppy is going to learn. I am glad I stumbled on your channel this is going to be a huge help!

  8. THANK YOU FOR THIS CHANNEL! YOU’RE AMAZING! genuinely, you’re the first person I’ve found on YouTube who has the correct understanding of psychology and dog training… You’re wonderful! Thank you thank you thank you!

  9. Hi, I’ve thought about using a whistle in recall training our Springer puppy when we get him in a few weeks. Would you recommend this? Love your videos!

    1. Yes, a whistle and also just some verbal recall.. Cause in an emergency and you dont have the whistle you could just yell the recall.

  10. I’ve watched a lot of videos the past six months, and I think yours are some of the best…thank you…you’re a very good teacher…and your presence is very kind…
