Jimbo was trained by my best friend 6 years ago and he is still doing great!!
I think most dogs are easily distracted though. Come doesn't work well for Jimbo I just call his name and if he is stubborn (which is a good amount of time) I say now firmly.
They seem to need certain words that tell them you mean business. Jimbo knows that when I tell him he is BAD he has done something wrong and will spend the rest of the day smiling at me and trying to seem like he is remorseful.
NOW tells him I mean it and will drag him shortly if he doesn't move his 72 pound butt lol.
