Whistle Train Come


There are times when your dog may be too far away from you to hear the cue “come” or maybe it’s just too difficult for you to yell and the whistle would be an easier tool. Here are some simple tips from my book, “Come, Boy!”

The Start of Whistle Training

Say your dog’s name, and as soon as his neck turns, as he is moving toward you, instead of saying “come,” blow the whistle and strongly reinforce (lots of treats) when he arrives. After a few repetitions you will eliminate saying his name and simply whistle.

Allow your dog to get distracted. Say his name and as soon as he moves toward you, whistle. When he gets closer deliver treats.

Let me know how it goes! Do you have any experiences with whistle training come?
