When he looks at you, say his name and give him a dog treat.

As an option, use a clicker before giving the treat.

Do this for five to 10 minutes daily, and within days, you'll be able to say his name and get his attention as he looks at you in anticipation of a treat.

If you have a puppy who's younger than 6 weeks, his hearing and eyesight are limited. For optimal results, wait until he's 12 weeks old, because this is when eyesight and hearing are fully developed. If you have an older dog from a shelter who previously had another name, start teaching him his new name the moment you bring him home.

Start calling your puppy’s name and when he turns to look at you, mark immediately but leave it 2 seconds before giving the treat so he has to hold his attention on you longer. Do a few sessions at 2 seconds, then 3 seconds, then 4…try to eventually get your puppy to pay attention to you for at least 5 seconds before rewarding.

Name Game. Your dog won’t know his name until you really teach it to him! Teaching your dog his name is actually about teaching your dog to look at you when you say his name. This is one of the more fun training games for 8-10 week old puppies! To play the Name Game, all you do is say your puppy’s name and wait. Nothing more.

Use your puppy's name one time per exercise (e.g. Come, Molly!). If you repeat the name continually before the dog comes, he will tune the name out. Use the puppy's name with positive commands. Consider running away from your puppy while you call his name. Dogs love to chase things and might be more likely to follow you.

If your dog knows the meaning of his name he will respond and come to you when called even while in the middle of playing. Of course, as I mentioned in my last article, How To Handle Your Puppy’s First Night At Home, training your puppy will require consistency and patience.

This helps to remove lactic acid and waste products. As with massage it is important that the dog is relaxed before you start this treatment.

How long do I wait before taking my puppy outside? Vets recommend waiting until 10-14 days after your puppy's last vaccination booster – usually at around 14–16 weeks of age – before introducing them to the wonders of local parks, beaches and walking trails.

Heat usually lasts between 2-4 weeks. Early in the cycle, a female dog may not be receptive to male dogs, although some are receptive through the entire cycle. It can be shorter or longer and you'll know the cycle is over when all her vulva returns to its normal size and there's no more bleeding or discharge.

By around eight weeks of age your puppy should be eating solid food.

Puppies should be fed three to four times a day therefore if you are currently feeding ¾ a cup of puppy food twice a day you should consider spacing it out by feeding ½ cup three times a day.


A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.

15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.

Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.


Puppies under six months of age shouldn't stay in a crate for more than three or four hours at a time.

They can't control their bladders and bowels for that long.

The same goes for adult dogs being housetrained.

Physically, an older dog can hold it, but they don't know they're supposed to.


Young puppies have short attention spans but you can expect them to begin to learn simple obedience commands such as "sit," "down," and "stay," as young as 7 to 8 weeks of age.

Formal dog training has traditionally been delayed until 6 months of age.

Actually, this juvenile stage is a very poor time to start.


Feeding adult food will rob your puppy of important nutrients.

Four feedings a day are usually adequate to meet nutritional demands.

Large breeds should be fed unmoistened dry food by 9 or 10 weeks; small dogs by 12 or 13 weeks.

3–6 months: Sometime during this period, decrease feedings from four to three a day.
