Description of skills: COME
The command “come” means “return to me right now.” It is an extremely important command that is frequently used many times a day. When taught properly this command can be used effectively in all situations including in dog parks and other high distractions areas. When my Border Collie Cassie was young, she wandered off a hiking trail and onto a very busy street getting caught huddled on the center line as cars sped by in both directions. A brief break in traffic and a quickly issued come command returned her safely to my side.
