They are just adorable and come as soon as they hear "puppies". Their tails never stop wagging!! Love the video.

Those puppies are sooo cute!! My Zoey and I live on a very wild and somewhat unboundaried 40-acre tree farm at least temporarily, anyway and when she gets to exploring, it can be difficult to break her attention away from all the interesting smells of the wild and the pine cones which she loves to chew and yellow flowered weeds that wave in the breeze. She has discovered the huge outdoors. I always take her out on a very long leash but other people who come to visit sometimes inadvertently let her sneak past them and now I have a different problem with her responding quickly to the command “come” because it can be a scary place out there! I do take her out on the leash about 4-5 times a day for a nice walk around the property. I will give the “puppy” command a try with her food every time and see if that helps!

Ditto ... Repeat Thousands of Times ...Patience ...Persistence. I use the same Command with an Energetic Voice and a Treat: Patti! Come!

I'm the only one who can get Patti to Come and 99% of the time I give her a treat and I'm persistence. It's takes a long while and you need to keep it up in the Hope! that if the dog is in danger they will come to you without a treat.

My husband will say: Come! without enthusiasm and Patti ignores him. Can't seem to train Daddy on what to say and how to say it.

Saying excitedly: Puppy, Puppy, Puppy, Puppy! I used that with other dogs and it worked.Doesn't work with this one, because I didn't start it early enough... I think.

I do the same when we finally come up with a name for one, only using the name instead of "Puppies". It has to be in a happy voice. Without food, there does need to be a small happy celebration when they do come, for a reward.

I had the volume turned up when watching your video. When you started calling: Puppies! Puppies! My 18-month old, barked and ran up the stairs to where I was. Hysterical

We are keeping three visitors this week. An 8 year old, a 2 year old, and a less than 1 year old. We also have two of Birdy's puppies, who leave this weekend, as well as Lucy, who is less than a year old, and Ruby the one we kept from Savi's litter.

I'll be on the floor, playing with the two little puppies, and call "puppies". All the ones listed above will come running.
