The Come Command

This basic command lays the foundation for the more advanced regimen that lies ahead.

Many gundog articles delve into advanced topics (steadying the dog to shot, blind retrieves,  backing points, etc.), but I think the average hunter probably just wants a bird dog that won't run off and occasionally finds and retrieves game. Here's a video produced by SportDOG pro staffer Tom Dokken regarding a very basic step: teaching the "come" command. It's not a glamorous topic, but it's one with which every gundog owner simply must be familiar.

I had the opportunity to pick Tom's brain regarding various topics during my recent Purina trip. More on that in a future blog entry.
