I have a new boy, Gabe. Gabe is the star of his training class- super smart(he's 4 four months). He is almost too smart. I have two questions. The first has to do with the "come" command. He knows what "come" means and will only do it for his special training treats in a confined space(on the long line). When I reward him with "big boy" play time in my living room. All of his training goes to pot... "come" is an option. He processes the command and looks at me and runs to the opposite side of the house. Come is associated with his meal time, play time, and he gets LOTS of love and attention. It's been nothing but positive. I don't play with him and ignore him when he does this. And only reward him when he comes to me willingly. I need reassurance from other sheltie pup parents. Is this his "naughty" stage? When did your puppy get his 100% recall? Trust me he is leashed at all times and was such an angel at 8 weeks old... stayed right by my side. The second part of the question: what did you do different when they weren't quite getting "come"? How did you change it up? Thanks ya'll!
