What Is The First Word A Puppy Must Learn

I know many of you know the answer to my question yet I can safely say that it isn’t the first word your pup learned. Many dog owners including myself fall short on this area at least once.

Come on, be honest. You know that it was not his name that your pup learned his first word. That’s right, it was the word “NO.” And poor Fido my Shiba inu puppy thought (for some may still think) it was his name. He probably had his business card printed as…

  • All puppies must learn his name first,
  • which he should always associate with pleasure.

Why Is It Important For A Pup To Learn His Name First?

Easy Identification At Home. When you have more than one dog, it can be confusing for your dogs to respond to you. There will be times you need one of them to come to you, not two nor eight. Similarly, this also applies when you have children and a dog at home. When you call out “Dinner’s ready,” you are expecting your children and husband to be in the dining area, not Fido tagging along, and joins you at the table.

Not just in training schools or parks, all domesticated dogs should respond to their owner when called—for his safety and yours.

Don’t you think you would respond better when someone addresses your name in a pleasant tone? While your dog may not be that particular about you calling his name before performing a simple task—Fido, remote control; however it does make the request less demanding.

What Are The Next Important Words Your Dog Must Learn?

No. As much as we like our pups to behave angelically, the reality is they won’t be during their first few months. Puppies are like children, they are curious creatures. They explore, they test boundaries, or they are just oblivious—it’s their nature. It’s our duty to educate them on what is acceptable and what’s not. There’s no need to shout at him when he’s done something wrong, trust me he hears 50 times better than you can. Just growl at him and say “No.”

Most owners use “Okay” as a release word when a specific task is performed. Even you don’t enroll your dog in any training school (which I think you should), your dog must learn to understand the word “okay” means “just that.” The difference between using the word “No” and “Okay” is that you may use his name along with it, like “Okay, Fido!”
