Bichon Frise: Training Your Bichon Frise- Come

When training your Bichon Frise to come you need to have a leash or line at least 6 feet long. Initially you may begin training your dog "Come" in a yard where there are fewer distractions than in an area such as a park where you may be able to practice the command later on. Limit practice sessions to 5 to 10 minutes to allow enough time for repetition of commands but not too much time where your pet gets bored. Be patient and always use a clear upbeat voice and praise and encouragement.

  • Attach leash to your Bichon Frise's collar
  • Let pet explore surroundings
  • Call pet's name
  • Call "Come" or "Here"; choose short word you want to use consistently
  • Tug gently on leash or line (Bichon should turn to look at you)
  • Begin backing up, gathering leash with one hand while running extra line through other hand or over upturned palm of extended hand. While doing this you should also be praising your Bichon, telling him how wonderful he/she his.
  • If your dog isn't responding give a little firmer pull on leash and call his/her name and say, "Come". Follow with other tugs and words of encouragement as needed.
  • If pet still isn't coming crouch down and using a high pitched tone of voice offer encouragement and praise.
  • To get pet to come off leash use a Big Treat and dangle, when pet comes give him a small treat but put larger one out of reach but within sight for next time.

* Backing up and giving small tugs on leash are ways to communicate to your Bichon Frise that you want him/her to move in a certain direction. After awhile your dog should learn to understand “Come” without any other prompting.
