How To Teach Your Puppy Its Name

1 Name It Right

 Positively use your puppy's name. When calling your puppy, use a happy tone.

2 Create Good Relations

 Give your puppy a treat, praise, or affection when it answers its name. Positive reinforcement improves its name's link with good things.

3 Treat and Reward

 Start training quietly and without interruptions. This keeps your puppy from getting overwhelmed while learning its name.
