    Cool need help

    Im not training for hunting but need help. Im not new to dog ownership my last dog made 15 years. Anyway my 11 month old lab is beyond normal hyper. This dog loses his mind and is a total maniac. My problem is getting him to come. For the last month he has been really bad about getting 10 ft from me and then wont let me grab him. This frustrating because When I finally get a hold of him I want to well... But I dont want to send the whole bad mesage by punishment when I do get a hold of him. How do I end this? I prefer to not have to leash my dog in my own yard. I spemd lots of time with this dog Trying work him out this but I dont know what to do.
    I personally play and excersize him at leat an hour a day not counting his time out on the dog run. He was pretty good abou coming on command till about 4 weeks ago.

    I had a german shorthair that went through a phase like this. I started putting a 50ft rope on her when we went outside. When I said "come", I'd give her about 1/2 second to come on her own, and then I'd reel her in as fast as I could, and then lavish praise. It didn't take too long and she learned.

    Thats no big deal as what your talking about is simple obeidence training, that all dogs should be trained to do. Like others have said go get yourself a checkcord and start working on sit, stay and come on the checkcord until your dog has it down then slowly try working off the checkcord. Only after your certain the dog knows the commands should you introduce the training collar. You may consider checking into a video that covers obeidence training or even maybe contacting a trainer to help you.
