If you love dogs, chances are that you have heard a dog sing or speak. This behavior, speaking or singing on command can be taught to any well-trained fur baby, even yours. Here are the steps to follow in order to have your dog speaking and singing in no time. Follow these steps and you and your dog companion will amaze your friends and family.
Teaching The “Quiet” Command
Teaching The “Speak” Command
Once your pooch has the grasp of the quiet command, it’s time to move on to the “speak” command.
At this point, you’ll want to do a training session alternating the “quiet” and “speak” commands. This will help reinforce the training.
Teaching The “Sing” or “Howl” Command
If your pup howls occasionally or is a breed that likes to howl (like a Husky), he’ll be much more apt to catch on. If not, no need to fret. Other than just general excitement (whether it be for dinner or a favorite toy), there are two things that will usually evoke howling….1) other dogs howling 2) music and/or singing. You can find video/audio of dogs howling through a simple search online. To see the video I used when teaching my dogs to howl, CLICK HERE!

As always, remember to keep training sessions short and upbeat. If your pup isn’t getting it at first, training too long can frustrate both you and your dog. Also, small treats are perfect for training, but be careful not to over-feed.
My dogs have given me an entirely new spiritual perspective on life. I now have a genuine understanding of unconditional love and provision.
