Blue ticks are very intelligent, but training can take some time with lots of repetition. In order to teach it to come, you must first teach it to stay. You can do this with doggie treats, first letting your dog see the treat and telling it to stay. When you tell it to stay hold your hand up with your palm facing the dog and gently tell it to stay. Repeat while backing up 5 feet and tell your dog to come and then give him/her a treat. It takes younger dogs many times before they stay until you back up, but these dogs are highly trainable. I've taught mine stay, come and down. You'll need to practice with your dog several times a day for weeks in order for your dog to internalize the command. Most importantly, you have to speak calmly to your coon hound. If you are yelling or angry the dog will not respond and will be frightened.
