If you find that your Doberman is unresponsive to the come command (and your best smoked pork), you will have to resort to practicing the command on a 25-foot line. A little tug on the line and the puppy will get the idea that "come" means "come and get it!" Practice makes perfect, but don't overdo the treats or in six weeks you'll have a tubby puppy who is selective about when to hear your call and when to ignore it.
With a Doberman, training is essential and should be started at an early age. A big part of training is patience, persistence and routine. Teach each command the same way every time; do not lose your patience with the dog, as he will not understand what you are doing; and reward him for performing his command properly. You will find that your Doberman puppy will learn these commands very quickly. Your friends, when they come to your house for a dinner party, will also appreciate a well-behaved dog who will not jump on their clothing or land in their laps while they are having cocktails.
