When starting to teach your dog to respond to voice commands, you will first need to teach him to respond to your voice. There are several ways to teach your dog to respond to voice commands. First, stand a few feet away from your dog when using commands such as "Come here" or "Down". When he responds by coming to you, prse him. Repeat this process a few times until your dog understands you are only calling him when you want him to come. Next, practice using voice commands when your dog is inside and out of his room. If your dog is inside your home, make sure he is trned to respond to the commands in a positive way. If your dog is outside, it is important that he obeys the commands whether he is in your yard or in a busy street. Start with quiet commands like, "Quiet", "Leave it" and "Go Away". After he responds to quiet commands, increase the volume of your voice. Next, try verbal commands such as "Go in", "In the yard" and "Go outside". If your dog does not understand what you are saying, take it slowly. Be patient and he will learn. You will find that he responds quickly to positive commands such as "Sit down" and "Down", but may not respond to commands such as "Go away" until he becomes familiar with your voice. It will be easiest to teach your dog to respond to the commands you use most often. If you use the same command every time, your dog will quickly figure out which command means "Go away". Practice, practice, practice. The more you use a command, the more he will understand it.
