Mini Aussie Puppy Running From Me

My puppy runs from me when I try to pet him or pick him up. Seems like a game to her. How do I stop this behavior?

Puppy runs from you
by: Anne

All you have to do is get a treat, something your puppy really really likes. Put the treat to the puppy's nose , but don't give it to them. tell your puppy "come" and as soon as they come to you give them the treat. Try it again and always have treats in your pocket when you call your puppy. When your puppy gets to you...give the treat and lots of praise.
(this is the way I train my 5 week old puppies)
Good Luck!
