I love the American Eskimo and have had 7 in the last 25 years. I am really trying hard to train this last one. He will not come to me most of the time when I call him, but will come when I walk off. I want to know how to get him to come right away in case he is in danger. Can someone give me some suggestions?

Start on a long line like they use on horses so you are in control your American Eskimo can be safe you may have accidently turned the command come in to play with the line you can stop and correct while leting the dog have some freedom

First of all, please have your american eskimo's hearing checked...secondly sit down on the floor with something that will make him curious enough to come over to you...when he comes, and he WILL come shower him with affection and give him a treat...small this a few times over at different times and with different toys...eventually, you can just call him over to see the new toy, saying his name...the treat will be you showing signs of affection and good boy lavished all over him...he will come eventually if he has reason to initially..then he will just come when called...i had a beautiful female eskimo and she was a total delight...the bonding that took place immediatly when we brought her home was incredible...we didn't have the problem you have, but it does make sense to entice, and then reward...i hope it will work for you...

My eskie is just a baby and is having a little trouble learning to come but I realized he LOVES when I say "come" and make kissy noises. It's weird... its the only way he will come :]
