One command, the “come” command, will prove itself to be one of the most useful commands you may ever teach your dog. This isn’t saying that no other command is as useful as the “come” command, because many of the other commands such as sit, stay, and down are very valuable, but the “come” command could potentially save your beloved pet’s life.
Let’s be honest, dogs like to roam, especially pups. They are care free, fun loving, and love to explore. Although these traits are something to be admired, they can often be dangerous to our pets.

All commands take a lot of practice and patience to get your pet to perform them correctly, and the come command may prove itself even more difficult than some as for it to be performed correctly requires your pet to obey you over distance. If you take the time, however, and practice the command with your pet as you should, it will pay huge dividends latter for you and your dog.
