Help Teach Speak!

My dog is really quiet, he only barks if he cannot see what is making noise. should i just get what makes him bark, say a word when he does it. and then sync it? just like that? anyone know any other methods>? i will try all and see which works for me =)

I have recently started this with my dog, who will not audibly let us know when he needs to go outside to relieve himself. Since he knows what "hungry?" and "bathroom?" mean and will react accordingly, I've gotten him to the point where he will bark in response to the question.

When the "speaking" occurs at the correct time, praise praise praise and tell him good boy! I've also found that saying "good ______" (fill in the correct command) after they do it correctly works for me too.

This is what has worked for me personally, I am sure some more experienced people will chime in on a different or better method.

i still cant get Legend to Speak but i was told to put him on a tie out. stand just out of reach and tease him with a toy. It causes frustration and he'll eventually bark and when he does reward him with the toy. When he's doing it consistently then add the word to it....i also want to add it would probably be wise to also teach quiet!

This is exactly what I do with any new command or word I want her to recognize. Its amazing how reinforcing something this simple is.

I taught speak to my other dogs..I do what they do..I bark and if they bark along with me I give them a treat. I do this several times before I give them the command "speak".
It helps if you use treats or bits of food.

I have used all three of those methods to teach my dog speak I kind of put them together. Very good info guys. and yes you should also teach the quite command after you teach the speak command lol

That's China!!! She won't speak for me at all no matter what I do. I will try the tie out thing and tease her with a toy or treat but I'm not so sure that's going to work either. She's so difficult lol. She's only vocal when she wants to be...Guess it's good that she knows Quiet!
