Teach speak in a single training session With them And if you want to improve your overall Training skills speak is a great thing To teach because it helps you get really Good at your overall timing which is a Critical element when teaching a dog It’s important to have an amazing Currency something your dog really loves Like real chicken but you could also use A toy if your dog is absolutely obsessed With that toy the key is your dog has to Love the thing that you’re teaching them With not just like it so let’s get down To business the first thing you want to Do is give your dog a treat just to let Them know look I got something really Good and just keep it right there just Out of their reach At this point though refrain from saying Speak speak your goal right now is just To wait them out and kind of hang out With their currency but not give it to Them until they bark is it to say hey What’s going on what do I have to do to Get that it’s normal for there to be you Know many minutes of waiting in the Beginning I’m just gonna ignore these Other things this is a very intermediate Habit where dog will start doing Everything they know in order to get the Reward was going through his drills Things he knows he’s lying down saying Is this what you want is this what I
Have to do you want me to leave Is that what you want I’ll do that is Play dead as you can see his roll over Because in the past those have resulted In him getting the things he wants this Confusion is only temporary because as He reasons it through and does a variety Of things we’re just going to be there To let him know which is the right thing We like it’s kind of like a game of hot And cold you can see his eyes right now He’s really really thinking it through Do you see that look he had his I’m Thinking about barking face on right There so that’s why rewarded yes good That was very good it wasn’t huge but I Want to let him know he’s on the right Track yes now that we’ve got to go and I Want to keep it going I don’t want to Take breaks here I wanted to keep the Yes keep the progress going because he’s Starting to get enough yes good I’ll Take that but I still want to turn that Kind of rumbling growl into a nice Proper bark right there I could have Reloaded but I’m trying to up the ante a Little bit oh yes good I’m refraining From saying to speak here until I get The behavior a little bit more reliably And where I want it so yes good that one Looks a tad bit louder so I’m liking This he’s doing spin that’s another Trick he’s been mastering yes good very Good I’m gonna give him a nice big dose
Of the thing he wants here which is real Chicken the idea is he learns when he Gives that nice proper bark that I’m Looking for that I give him those extra Rewards to really make it ultra clear is My Massa behavior I’m looking for I Expect this to start coming a little bit Quicker now oh yes yes good oh yes oh Yes very good all man that was good what I love about teaching things like speak For example is that you have to motivate Your dog to want to do the behavior you Can’t force a dog to do this you can’t Teach this with traditional training Methods like a choke chain or prong Collar the best way to introduce a new Word like speak in this case to your dog Is to say the word just as or just Before they do it let me show you what I Mean happy very good you can invent your Own hand signals whatever feels natural To you so for speak for Jacob I’m Kai Of doing this speak speak good now let’s See if Jacob will speak when I ask him – Upon request it’s pretty early for this But it would be pretty nice if he did Speak yes and right now I’m not really Picky on the volume or anything I just Want to see that he’s making an effort Speak okay yes speak yes good job speak This is how you show your dog what a Word or phrase means Jacob’s really Getting the hang of this maybe a little Too much so so at this point I’m pretty
Confident that Jacob knows what speak Means Chances are once you teach your dog to Speak like this they’re gonna start Barking all the time once they realize Hey Marvin gets me rewards so that’s Probably something you don’t want which Is why it’s important for your dog to Understand what quiet means So it’s very important that I don’t Reward him for speak unless I Specifically ask for it again since he Knows what it means if he didn’t know I Would be a little bit more tolerant and That’s right at that time I’m not going To reward again it might seem a little Mean that I’m carving the tree now just Like we were going but I want to make Sure that I’m clear about my Communication ya know when I say no I’m Making that tree go far away to let him Know nobody something that’s making it Go away Oh no right quiet yes there was a moment Of quiet there so I’m gonna come in and Reward for that I’m gonna try and build On that quiet time now speak good quiet Yes I didn’t even give him much of a Chance to bark there but that’s okay Because I captured that they gave your Wall he was being quiet so my goal here Is to get a good speak and a good quiet Back to back good nice work Jacob quiet yes good work buddy but what
