We have a 7 1/2 month JRT, Bailey. My husband and I both share responsibilities of Bailey b/c he works nights and I work days but she seems to only really listen to my husband with the "COME" command. I have spoken with a trainer, etc. and she told me that Bailey thinks of me more as her playmate and not the boss. For about 3 weeks, I had her listening to me and coming on command (I would tap a newspaper on the floor and she would immediately come) BUT she no longer is listening to me and will bark and bark at me and when I tell her to come she just runs around and has me chasing her. I don't know what to do. She listens to everything else but this come command. Note: If I'm trying to get her to come, I can ask my husband to call her and she'll immediately come out from under the table, couch, etc. What am I to do???
