    Question Dog Name

    Sorry one more question, we have named our puppy Jade but she still doesnt seem to know her name, so i was wondering how long does it take a puppy to learn their name>?

    Depends on the puppy.

    I'd guess a month or so. You could try a variation on "click and treat" and or "watch me" eg "Jade" and treat. All they need to do is look up/at you when you say their name. What they do next should be another word/command.

    It may depend a bit on how you say it too. "Jade" and JAAAYYYYY DDEEEE" probably don't mean the same to a dog.

    Use the word a lot when you're playing with her, when you're feeding her, but ideally not when you're telling her off. Ok if you're distracting her for a displacement activity but not for scolding.
