Teach Your Dog to Speak On Command

Teaching your dog to speak is quite easy, especially if your dog already likes to bark when he gets excited. Armed with your dog’s favorite treats and maybe his favorite toy, we’re ready to begin.

You will want to start with your dog fairly close to you (after lots of practice you can do this from a distance). Give him the sit command. Hold up his treat so he can see it. Now in a happy excited tone, try to get him excited about the treat. You can say, “Do You Want This? Treats? Speak for Your Treat.” Out of frustration, he will eventually bark, and when he does, say, “Good Speak,” and give him the treat. Repeat.

See, how easy is that?!
