BNM1980 Posted January 29, 2009 Report Share Posted January 29, 2009 What is a good command to use when your dog wants to go to people at the park who may not be as enthusiastic about him as he is about them? I use "leave it" for when I want Blake to let go of something I am taking from him, like the rope, and again for when he is about to go to something he shouldn't, like a rubbish bag. ("Drop it" is for something he has in his mouth that I want him to drop on the ground, like a ball or piece of garbage). And at the moment, I've been using "leave it", or just "come" when he starts to run to strangers in the park. It's working most of the time, but a lot depends on how close he gets. Once a certain critical proximity to new people is reached (about three meters at the moment) he appears powerless to stop himself. I was wondering if it is a good idea to use a new command for this specific problem? What command do you use to curb your dogs "social calls"?
