Tip of the Day: Coming When Called
(Dogs to Kevin)
A system that I go with when doing off leash hiking with my dog is if he comes back on his own without me asking, he gets 1 reward. If he comes back when I call and it was quickly, I will give two rewards. If he comes back when I call when there is a huge distraction I give a ton of rewards. I don't even think I count. Just one after another with plenty of sincere enthusiasm. Most importantly, after he comes when called and gets his reward, I release him to go off and run again. This turns it into a double reward system. Try this out, you should have a lot of success with it. Definitely use a long leash at first until you trust that your dog will come back every time you call.
Hi, my name is Terry. I manage this website for my furbaby, Daisy. When I first became interested in the Shichons, I found it was difficult to get information on them. A few sites, I am using for information are excellent sources. Then, I moved on to compile and share more information on choosing a good breeder, grooming, health, behavior, training and much more. I hope you enjoy this site and find it helpful. I am NOT promoting any information, just sharing. You and your vet know what is best for your baby.
