Many choose a different name for their puppy than originally received from the breeder. This is not tragic, as the Dobie can get used to it very quickly at that age. But how do they learn to listen to their new name?
It is best to start in a quiet environment and watch the moment when the Doberman puppy is not busy with anything else. Be sure to have treats, a great toy or praise with pats and words. For if you call his name joyfully and loudly, and your dog reacts and looks to you, then an effusive praise and a reward should follow. The Dobie will learn: When I am called something pleasant or exciting happens. Once he has understood this, he will always respond with joy and curiosity and focus entirely on you. Finally, the sound of his name should arouse his full attention and guide you in every situation.
In the first few days should therefore always apply: name call - dog is attentive - reward! The praise can slowly become less and less later. If he does not respond to the call during the training phase, please do not say his name in an endless loop. This just dulls and the word becomes meaningless. Try it again later.
