It’s super important to pick a cute name for your furry friend. You gotta think about her personality, how she looks, and what you like.

How to teach your puppy their cute name

dog training classes

Here are the steps to teach your puppy their name:

Step 1: Make it a game by calling their name in an excited voice.

Step 2: Use a lure to capture their attention if needed, and mark the “aha!” moment with a clicker or “Yes!” followed by a reward.

Step 3: Increase the challenge by practicing with distractions in different environments.

Step 4: Incorporate their name into everyday life, using it during playtime, mealtimes, and when calling them for walks or playtime.

To ensure that keeping your dog is not a nightmare…

If you have a new puppy, you know it can be a lot of fun but also a bit challenging. Puppies like to chew things they’re not supposed to, they can keep you up at night, and they may have accidents in your home. If you feel overwhelmed, don’t worry! You can get help from the Ultimate Puppy Program by Spirit Dog Training. This online course will teach you how to train your puppy to behave well from a young age. 

For more valuable insights, check out the Free Online Dog Training Workshop conducted by Dr. Alexa Diaz and Eric Presnall, renowned figures in dog training. This workshop can help your dog become calmer and more obedient, just like a service dog. It’s a free resource, but I’m not sure how long it’ll be available online, so it’s best to take advantage of it now.
