Bo will come to me as his first choice when training this command but if I'm not present, he will go to any person. Bo only gives this behavior on verbal command to 'get help' and this command is only given by Austin. Also, Austin is the only person who rewards Bo with food for retrieving a person and bringing the person to him.
We began training the 'get help' command when Bo was a young pup and we practice it on a regular basis.
Raising Bo: Get Help
Bo is trained to get help on command and now with a GoPro camera and GoPro's Fetch dog harness we can capture what the behavior looks like from Bo's perspective. In this video, you see Bo look for me in my bedroom before continuing down the hall to find me in Austin's room. You also see him jump and bark and circle back to me. When we practice this command it's always Austin that rewards Bo with food for bringing a person back to him. We've been training the 'Get Help' command since Bo was a young pup. #RaisingBo http://raisingbo.blogspot.com
