    Thanks Newfsie.

    I totally get the calling and letting them go off again. But as you say, that will only work well if you do lots and lots of recalls so those times that you do have to put them on the leash when they come are the exception to the rule. I do some recalls on my walks for that purpose, but maybe not enough yet.

    I would say I literally do hundreds with a new dog. I got Lukey as a four year old in February....No recall at all. I just used to walk around. call his name, reward, over and over again. Everywhere and anywhere over and over again. Very boring and tedious......it's Pavlovian in the end. My name = treat/come

    I know what you meant by 'Pavlovian' but now I'm hungry.

    Even though we are making some progress with the "come" response, I decided that I'm fed up calling "Come". I used it to death with my old dog and my friends laugh at my Belgian accent when I yell it.

    I read in an article recently about someone who got their dog running up to them all excitedly when they yelled "Free beer!". And my daughter wants to teach our dog some Flemish words, so why not choose something silly in that language, I thought.

    My first idea is "Frietjes" which means 'chips'.

    It will mean I have to start from scratch, but that's probably a good thing anyway.

    Ha Ha...That would be funny. Funnily enough katy comes to "off". Because she used to bark at the horses and I used to say "Katy Off"......And if she came, she would be treated. So "off" is her word. Just like "katy" is and "come" and "who's that"....Basically Katy comes flat chat at any opportunity LOL.......
