Coming when asked to...
I've a 7 month old Kuvasz female puppy on my hands...she is a joy to be around and live with and training is going relatively well. She walks well on a leash and doesn't go crazy...unless someone comes up to us and starts making a fuss over the "big poochie" (as she was referred to the other day).
Now we've been working with a positive reinforcement trainer and things are going well - but Katalin (the puppy) does not come to me unless I've extremely good food in my hands or a tennis ball (her favorite toy). The trainer told me to keep up with working with her with the food but once there is no food (or even sometimes when there is)...there is still alot of hesitation when she is called to come. She might stare abit and wait a while and then walk over very slowly....pointers would be much appreciated =)
