There’s nothing scarier than watching your dog run off across the beach, down the street, or through the woods while you helplessly call for him to come back to you without any luck.

It only takes seconds, for a dog to vanish before your eyes—all because your dog is excited and decided to chase a squirrel or heard another dog in the distance and wanted to check it out.

What might seem like fun adventure to your dog quickly turns into panic and overwhelm for you.

You may start thinking to yourself,"What if she gets lost and can’t find her way back?"

Or, "What if my dog get’s hit by a car?"

As a dog parent, I know this feeling all too well. Which is exactly why I stress the importance of recall training—how to get a dog to come when you call

Not only can recall training save your dog’s life, but it can also keep other people and dogs safe in the event that your dog takes off after a person or other animal.

So, here’s the million dollar question… "How do you get your dog to come every time your call her?"

Keep reading and you’ll find out…

1. 7 secrets to training your dog to come when called, every time!

Dogs and puppies not coming when we call them can be one of the most frustrating things!

We ask nicely, we call them, we shout and scream… We even begin to wonder if our dog or puppy has a hearing problem!

Even worse is when they’re running wild at the park and we have an audience watching us…so embarrassing!

Let’s face it, most dogs only come when they want to. You know, when it’s dinner time, when they want a pat or when there’s nothing else going on!

So what can you do to train your dog to come when called? Here’s 7 recall training secrets that will help you out…

a. Tasty treats

Yes I know, we all hate bribery… but trust me on this one thing. If there is ever a time to use food to train your dog, then it’s when we’re developing the recall command.

I’m actually not a fan of using food when it comes to stopping behavioral issues, but this is different. This is asking our dog to do something as fast as they can and we need to reward (or pay) them so that they do it.

Think of the food as payment… After all, would you keep going to work if they stopped paying you?

So, when you ask your dog to stop playing with their best friend and come running–all the way back to you down the beach–they need more than just a pat!

Making sense?

Of course later on we can fade out the food, but for starters it’s ok to use treats.

b. Keep control

One of the most common questions I get asked is what do we do when our dog is running away and won’t come back? And the answer is simple…

There is not a lot you can do.

It’s the same as when a horse has bolted out the stable and is galloping off. They are out of control!

You see there are really only two ways to get our dogs to come to us…
