Video: Get Help Command

In this video you will hear Austin give Bo the command to 'get help.' I am seated at the dining room table. Bo's job is to get my attention and get me back to Austin. When Bo is given this command he shows a heightened level of excitement. He often jumps up, barks and uses his paw to get our attention. If we start following him but stop, or take a different path, he will circle back to us. Bo is being trained on this command in order for him to be able to go for a person in the event Austin needs help. We practice this command in our house and when we take Bo off leash on trails. Eventually, I'd like to work on this command with the help of our neighbors -- with the goal of training Bo to learn how to get help from Syl and Gil.
