Have you ever met a dog that seems to listen to every word of the conversation between the humans? Or a puppy that picks up on one of his known words in casual conversation? Ever find yourself a little jealous that your pup doesn’t pay that much attention to you?
Talking to your puppy is an extremely important part of teaching him commands, tones of voice and to be alert and focused at all times. This makes for a more intelligent dog and a closer bond between the two of you.
- Inside/Outside – This command is very practical for housetraining and for ease. When you take your puppy outside, repeat “outside” in a high-pitched, excited voice. After he does his business, repeat “inside” as you walk back to the door. Pretty soon he’ll be right at the door as soon as you say the word to go out and dashing to go back in.
- Go to bed – Ever have someone at the door or company that you need to have you puppy out of the way for a moment? This command is perfect for that. Repeat “go to bed” as you take him to bed each night so he’ll associate his bed with the words.
- Where is your… – Maybe you want to show off how smart your dog is to family and friends? This is just what you need! Teach your pup names for each of his toys, the family members such as “dad” or “John”. Once he knows all the names, ask him “Where is…” and let your friends be amazed how smart he is.
- Do you want… – This is a great way to be sure you know what your puppy wants when he won’t leave you alone. After you teach him other words you can ask him “Do you want dinner?” “Do you want a bone?” “Do you want to go outside?” And watch his body language to see what exactly it is he needs.
Talking to your puppy on a regular basis is important. But be sure you’re doing it correctly. Speaking as if you’re having a conversation with your best friend will most likely bore him, especially as a puppy since they have very short attention spans. Say only the words you need him to remember and that’s all. Once he has that down, you guys can converse all you like!
