Teaching A Dog To Talk

There are many tricks that can be taught to dogs. Some Dogs may get bored of the same tricks over and over again. So, here comes the need for some other various tricks that make your dog remember himself as a good performer. Here, I will be sharing one particular trick which is really fun to watch and is not that difficult. It involves teaching a Dog to speak.

Everyone knows that dogs are man’s best friend. No matter how lonely or depressed you are, there’s always a dog to brighten up your day. People all over the Internet have been finding creative ways to communicate with their dogs without having to learn that weird language they speak (or whatever it is they communicate with…sniffing armpits?).

Teaching a dog to talk can be a fun and rewarding experience. Dogs are incredibly intelligent, and have the ability to learn new things quickly.

First, you will need to teach your dog how to bark. This is a very simple process that requires only patience and consistency on your part. All you need do is show your dog a treat and hold it just out of reach of their mouth while they are barking. If they stop barking, they will not receive the treat; if they continue barking, they will get the treat when you give it to them. Once your dog has mastered this step, you can begin teaching them other words as well as sentences.

The best way to teach a sentence is by using hand gestures along with verbal cues so that your dog understands what it is that you want him or her to say or do next in order for them to receive their reward. For example: To train my dog Gizmo (who happens to be a poodle), I would use the following hand signal when telling him “sit” – I would place my hand directly above his head and then move it down towards his rear end (which is where he sits during dinner time). This works because poodles love food! And when we

Teaching a dog to talk is a rewarding experience, but it’s also a lot of work. You’ll need to be patient and consistent, but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to teach your dog new words and phrases.

There are several steps involved in teaching your dog to talk. First, start by teaching your dog how to sit. Then move on to teaching them how to shake hands and roll over. After that, you can begin working on teaching them individual words like “hello” or “no.”

Teaching your dog how to shake hands is an important step in training them how to speak because it helps them understand what you want from them when you ask them something. Just as with other animals, dogs learn by association; if they see another animal doing something, they will try it themselves. So if they see another animal shaking hands with their owner when asked for an object or petting, they will likely attempt this action as well (provided they have been trained properly).

Once they have mastered shaking hands (and rolling over), teach them how to say “hello” by putting their paw up against yours when greeting someone new. This will show them what you want

Teaching A Dog To Talk

Teaching your dog to “speak,” or bark on command, can be fun as well as useful: It’s a fun trick to show family and friends, and can also ward off intruders. While excessive barking can be a huge problem, teaching the speak and quiet commands with dedication and consistency can both sharpen your dog’s natural instinct and allow you to stop your dog from barking when needed.

Different dog trainers and owners have varying techniques, but the basic methods explained below work for many dogs.

Before You Get Started

To start the training, you will need some small and delicious dog treats or your dog’s favorite toy. Rewards should be immediate and very valuable. You need to make the action worth it to your dog. Small liver treats, chicken pieces, or similar training treats work best.

You will also need a barking stimulus such as a doorbell or someone to knock on the door.

Train Your Dog to Be Quiet

It is a good idea to start with the quiet cue and make sure your dog knows it before moving on to the bark cue. Some like to teach the two cues together to begin with. This is your choice; it is about your comfort level, confidence, and the dog’s ability to learn. Use your best judgment. Dogs with a tendency to become “excessive barkers” might need to learn the quiet command first.

Choose one simple word for the quiet command. This cue word should be easy to remember and used consistently. Good choices include “enough,” “quiet,” and “hush.”

  1. Create a situation that will cause your dog to bark. The best method is to have someone ring the doorbell or knock on the door. Or, you may be able to get your dog very excited to cause barking. Sometimes seeing another dog can bring on barking as well.
  2. When your dog barks, briefly acknowledge it by checking for the source (look out the window or door). Then, go back to your dog and get its attention (you might try holding up the treat or toy).
  3. After the barking stops, give your dog the toy or treat.
  4. Repeat these steps and gradually wait for slightly longer periods of silence each time before giving the treat.
  5. Once your dog has remained quiet a few times, add the cue word you have chosen. While your dog is barking, say your quiet command in a firm, audible, and upbeat voice while holding up the reward. Give your dog the reward when the barking stops.
  6. Practice the “quiet” cue frequently. You can do this anytime your dog barks, but keep training sessions brief.


Be patient yet consistent. Some dogs can take weeks to master these commands.

How to Train Your Dog to Speak

Once your dog seems to understand the quiet cue, it is time to move onto the bark command. Choose one simple word for the bark command. The word should also be easy to remember and used consistently, such as “speak,” “bark,” or “talk.” You can make up your own word or short phrase, but make sure it doesn’t sound too much like another cue word or your dog’s name.

  1. Once again, get your dog to bark naturally. 
  2. As your dog barks, say your cue word in a clear, upbeat voice.
  3. Praise your dog and give it a treat or toy.
  4. Repeat the speak command process several times until your dog seems to understand.
  5. Once your dog learns the speak and quiet commands separately, you can use them together. Have your dog speak a few times, then tell it to be quiet.

More Tips for Training Your Dog

  • Teaching the speak command only works on dogs that will bark. If you are training a puppy, wait until it develops the ability and desire to bark. The Basenji dog breed does not bark but sometimes make a yodeling sound.
  • Clicker training also works very well when teaching the speak and quiet commands.
  • To proof your dog’s new skills, practice these commands in environments outside the home in varied situations like at the park or in the car.
