Article SummaryX

To teach your dog to speak, start by playing a game with it to make it excited and energetic. Then, once your dog is pumped up, hold out a treat in plain sight. Wait until your dog notices the treat, then quickly hide it behind your back. Your dog should start barking soon after you hide the treat. When it does, say “Speak,” and give it the treat to reward the behavior. Keep practicing the trick every day, and start phasing out the treats until your dog barks on command when you say “Speak.”
