Garmin's Guide: How to Train the Dog to Come Here While Wearing the Delta Collar
In this article we will explain how to train your dog to come while wearing the Garmin Delta and Garmin Delta Sport Collars.
You should make sure that even before starting to use the collar for training of the “here” command, the dog must be very well versed with the “heel” and “sit” commands while wearing the collar. Once the dog is well-trained with these commands, let him wear the collar and make sure that you start at the appropriate level of intensity for your dog. At this point, consider using a longer leash since this will help to effectively train your dog on the “here” command.
1. Move away to the end of the leash while your dog stays in the sitting position.
2. Call your dog to come “here.”
3. In case the dog doesn’t come when called, briefly push a training button, lightly pull on the leash and repeat the command “here.”
4. Praise your dog even from the first instance that he attempts to move towards you. This will encourage him. But if the dog still doesn’t come and instead moves in the opposite direction, briefly push a training button and repeat the command “here.”
