This game does two things: it gets your dog to love her name first, and then it develops a motor behavior that we call “head whip.” We want the dog to stop what she is doing and whip her head around to look at you. Play this game to play to build your ability to call your dog away from distractions.
The first step in getting your dog to come to you is that she pay attention to you when you ask. Play this game a lot and you will build reward history for your dog turning away from distractions and looking at you. Thank you, Precious!
