Do you have a new puppy to train or have just adopted? Then think of a good name and familiarize your dog with it. There are a lot of benefits of orienting your dog with its name.
– Give your dog a good name
– Familiarize your dog with his name
– Call his name for attention
You must use your dog’s name every time you want to call his attention. If it is a new dog, use his name as frequent as you can to get him familiarized with it. Use it whenever you can such as when feeding him, playing with him or even when you take him for a walk.
Remember that your dog’s name does not mean “come”. Calling your dog’s name means “I want your attention and wait for further instructions”. Teach your dog to capture and keep his attention by rewarding her with a treat.
Guaranteeing that your dog knows his name is a fun training and also a “safety net”. If your dog gets away from you, you can just call your dog’s name and he will return to you.
