SummerGSDLover I get my pup all riled up playing. When he starts barking I give him a treat with the word, Bark! Took him a couple hours to get it but he's got it down now with no treats.

wyoung2153 I am not sure how yours is with barking already. Like, does she bark a lot or is already very vocal?

Titan was not.... ever. Lol. So what worked for me was this.. He is EXTREMELY toy driven. I once got him all riled up and ready for a game of fetch. I acted like I was going to through the ball but didn't. It took a little while but eventually he got so excited that he let out a bark (of sorts, lol) and then he got the toy. Eventually he would bark when I held the toy up and I added my speak command "Speak" I would then say that every time I held the toy or my hand up and eventually was able to just say it without the hand being there. I like to teach vocal commands AND hand signals for the same command so I paired the two again with a hand signal of my choice. Consequently, he has 3 commands now for speak, hand over my shoulder (like your throwing a toy), hand on my chest, and "speak."

mego I teased my dog relentlessly with a piece of food or toy that she wanted while saying "get mad" and as soon as she barked I marked it with YESSS and gave her what she wanted.

We're narrowing down the meaning of "get mad" to growling on command now lol

Mocha This is going to sound really stupid, but I just barked at mine and said "speak" until she realized what I wanted. Then I did the same thing with "whisper". Once one dog knows it, its a lot easier.
