It is important to note that different tones of voice are used in different situations to call the dog by its name. When a dog does the right thing, call its name in a gentle tone while touching or rewarding it. Use a stricter tone of voice when a dog is not behaving well. Play and going out should also use different tones of voice.


Although dogs do not know the meaning of language, they can distinguish the difference in human intonation. Also, when changing intonation, remember not to change the name. For example, a dog’s name is Babe, and different families are sometimes called Babe BB sometimes Bae in different contexts, which can cause confusion for the dog.

[Step by step explanation]

Avoid being rude when calling the dog by name. It is forbidden to attach the dog’s name when scolding. Otherwise, the dog will ignore his name the next time it is called. Names are limited to issuing commands and praise in order to make a good impression on the dog. The next time you call its name, you will immediately run to your side.


Generally, after five repetitions of step 2, the dog will get used to the name. However, a dog’s name is an effective means of getting its attention, so don’t always repeat it after the dog has settled on its name; this will make the dog less sensitive to names.

During name response training, it is best for the parent to crouch down so that the dog’s fear and anxiety can be eliminated. In addition, he can shake the lure accompanied by a slow hand clapping motion. I believe that with a short period of practice, the dog can get used to having its own name so that future training can be easier and smoother, and I wish your parents success! :>
