I recently deleted a "Dog Sounds" app off my phone, because it made all of my dogs go Nuts and I couldn't stop ROFL. Was afraid it would amuse me too much and turn into a laser pointer kind of disaster, lol!

It had barkng dogs, howling dogs, whining, snarling etc...all different dog sounds.

Amy and the dogs,

JackandMattie - LOL! I will have to look into that.

Thank you for all the responses. I will see what I can come up with.

You've already gotten some great advice Kzoppa is on the same track as I. My dog learned this rather quickly, I got her at 4wks by 8wks she was speaking on command.
Might not be much help you've probably tried all this as you mentioned treats did not work. I would simply hold a treat by my mouth asking her to speak sometimes barking at her or hiding the treat behind my back until she spoke on command, only then would I give her the treat & praise her.
She's a very vocal little girl anyways though. I looked quite crazy doing it but we have now moved on to trying to sound out words. She hasn't quite gotten it yet but she will break momma up into a two syllable woof. Good luck, some dogs just aren't as vocal as others may take a while before you get him to speak when you want him to. Persistence is always key!
