    Default Here or come ?!

    Hey I was just wondering what command you guys use here or come for the recall command? I'm not changing my command or anything I was just wondering why is there two names for the same command? Why is one better than the other?

    I use "Here" and as most will tell you it's because when you really need to recall a dog, for safety, disobediance, etc, you can get more emphasis and power behind it. No matter how loud you yell "come" it doesn't compare.

    I do not know of anyone in field work that uses "come". Practically speaking it is very difficult (impossible) to project afar an
    "m" sound (mouth closed) plus the silent "e". If one did use "come" they would essentially be using the Caaaaa! command.

    "Come!" works fine for me and my labs.

    "Here" sounds too much like my "Beer" command...I try to minimize that confusion....

    I use here because it is similar to heel. Both work often for the same command.
