Before you start exploring the world together, it’s important that your puppy recognises its name and can comfortably walk on a lead. Follow our simple training tips and prepare your puppy for lots of adventures.
How to teach a puppy its name
As soon as your puppy is welcomed into the family you should ensure that they learn their name as soon as possible. This will help your puppy establish when you are calling to them and will consequently help you handle them when you are around others. This is vital in day-to-day life, particularly if you live in the city.
We recommend you carry out this training in the park, allowing your puppy to run around you freely while you keep a close eye on them. A soon as your puppy looks at you, kneel down and call them using only their name, without enticing your puppy using any particular tone of voice or command.
When your puppy walks up to you, continue repeating their name while simultaneously giving them a treat.
