In an ideal world, when the dog hears the words come! he or she should stop what he is doing and run back toward you. Unfortunately, not many dogs think the command to come is exciting enough for them to come away from playing with other dogs or exploring.

The dog’s life revolves around a series of instinctive behaviours; prey drive is the one of the most powerful. All carnivores have an inbuilt ability and need to pursue and capture prey whether they are wild or domestic.
In training, prey drive can be used as an advantage because dogs with high prey drive are also willing to pursue moving objects such as toys, which can then be used to encourage certain kinds of behavior. The prey drive can be an...
