Ask a Trainer: How to Teach Your Dog Its Name in 60 Seconds

Featured in 7X7SF

Name recall is one of the most important building blocks in your dog's training routine.

Here's how to teach your dog his/her name. 

  1. Start in a distraction-free environment. Place a dog treat in each hand.
  2. Show the dog treat #1.
  3. Toss the dog treat #1 and while he's eating, repeat his name.
  4. As soon as the dog returns to you, reward with treat #2 closer to you.
  5. As your dog progresses, repeat these steps in more challenging environments.
