Does your canine friend ignore you when you call him?  Teaching your dog to come when he is called is the most important lesson you can impart to him.  A dog that responds immediately and consistently when you call him can enjoy freedoms that other dogs cannot.  We will also use distractions so your dog learns that coming to you is the best thing he can do.
