Australian Shepherd Dog Photo of the Day

Josh Mc Vety

This is my Australian Shepherd Finnegan, he is a year and 10 months old here. He lives in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. Finnegan is also a "Velcro" dog who absolutely loves, frisbee, swimming, snow and his little sister Gracie. There isn't a dog around that he isn't friends with.

This game also has two important functions: it helps you practice the "Come" and "Give" commands, and it also gives your dog physical exercise.

Just give your dog a toy and start to chase her around (best done in the back yard). Use exaggerated voice tones and body movements to get her excited and let her know it's all a big game. Chase her around for a minute, then call her to you with "Come." When she gets to you, get the toy off her using the "Give" command.

What if she doesn't come when you call her – what do you do? Nothing. You end the game and walk away. Most of the time, she'll come running to you as soon as you start to leave. Either way, she needs to learn that if she wants games she'll have to obey your commands. Again, as the leader you are the source of her fun.

If she doesn't come running after you when you stop the game, you need to do some more drilling on these two commands to get them more consistent.
