Q. I have a few obedience titles on my Havanese but I'm having problems keeping him with me when he's off lead in the show ring. He won't come to me when he's off leash outside. Suggestions?
I have a two year old Havanese. I have a few titles on him, but have problems with him staying with me off lead in the ring. Suggestions and when we are out side, he will not come to me. I need to put a leash on him at all times. Help!!! Thank you

A. I would first suggest you stop taking him off lead right now, spend some time redefining your training relationship.

I would start with engagement, which is the foundation of ALL training no matter what discipline you are pursuing.

I'd begin by taking our 2 week engagement class, you can find more info here.

I would then recommend the videos The Power of Training with Food and Training the Recall.

If you are trialing him now, I'd encourage you to put all that on hold. If you can't call your dog to you when he's off leash outside and he doesn't want to stay with you in the ring then he's not ready for dog shows.

Marker training (also called clicker training or operant conditioning) is one of the most profound systems of dog training that I have seen in my 50 years of owning, breeding and training working dogs. In its most basic form, it's a method of communication that is very clear for dogs to understand. Dogs learn the marker language quickly and when they do they thrive in training. The marker system produces dogs that love to train.

This is one of our most popular training videos for new puppy owners. Over 35 years Ed Frawley bred close to 400 litters of German Shepherd puppies. He knows what new puppy owners need to learn to end up with a calm quiet happy dog in the house. The DVD was updated in October 2010 to reflect how Ed and Cindy raise puppies in their home.
