Do that 9-15 times. Then, put the food in front of the tank then say your betta's name and "come here." Do 9-15 few times. Now pretend to put a piece of food in the tank and say your betta's name and "come here." Does it come?(If it doesn't try again. If it doesn't still then just come see me.) Good luck and happy training!
Thank you so much for the info! And I can't help asking...

How many times a day do you say "Where's Perry?"

They are very smart, Perseus learned his name very fast and will come out of hiding when I call for him, its so adorable how he will peek his little head out from where he is when I call him and then he will swim to my side of the tank where he always sees me sitting. Also he has started something new this week, in the mornings after I feed him he will stay in that spot and stare at me for awhile not moving, I think he is trying to get more food or something...lol

Actually if you have a Betta Log, they are great, bettas love em, and they float, so they move a lot, and when my betta is in his, there is a hole on top, you can feed from that hole, and when it's feeding time, just put your finger in the hole, so your betta can see it, and call his name to get his attention, and he will readily swim into the log to be fed. It is so darn cute..and fun:)

I've discovered that not only can they be trained like dogs (I've trained mine to jump for bloodworms), but they also beg for food like dogs too, at least mine does. She also gets crazy excited whenever I come into the room just like dogs do. She almost burst through her tank when I came home after being gone for 4 days (I had my mom come over to feed her, but my mom said Fishy didn't get very excited that she was there to give her food) It's amazing the similarities.

That's a funny question. About once.

When I was 9 or 10, I taught my betta to jump for his food. lol Just held the pellet above the water. Haven't tried teaching Dr. Seuss any tricks yet... I suppose I should, since it's so fun. :D
