Come – Games that have your dog coming in fast

November 28, 2020

Behaviors like Come or Loose Leash Walking that require action are strongest when we use games as a tool. Because the more fun you and your dog have playing the game, the better your dog will listen and respond.

Come As Fast As You Can Games

Here is a list of games with brief descriptions that will improve your dog’s speed, sense of fun, and ability to come when you call.

#1 – Race Away games – once your dog starts coming to you, race away and let your dog catch you
#2 – Games of Hide and Seek – Inside and Outside of the house
#3 – Come and Tug Games – call your dog short distances and play tug games
#4 – Can’t kiss me Games – this is like keep away with your face, but you do let your dog win and get those kisses in.

Hide N Go Seek

Look around your house for some great hiding places. 

Steal away and hide when your dog is doing its own thing.

Then call out, “Find me [dog’s name] find me.” 

When your dog finds you, have a party with play and treats. Then wait for your next opportunity to hide.


Have one person hold your dog by the collar while you hide and call your dog to find you.

This game is known for improving coming when called.
