Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Just wondering what training procedure you used to do this. Also, how consistent has this behavior been once trained?

Thanks

Kenzi will kinda do it. It's not consistent anymore. It could be if I had stuck with it but didn't really see a use for the skill. I would get her really excited and tell her to speak. When she would get so excited that she would yip then I would give her a treat. At first all I could get was a whine out of her and would reward for that since it was sound but the longer we went the more I made her really talk for the treat.

I tried with Ami. Sat on a snow bank face to face with him, said speak and then howled to him. After the third time, he gave me a funny look and pawed at my face. Left bloody railroad tracks down my forehead, nose and chin. Decided it wasn't worth it

I think it helps if the dog is already inclined to speak. With Kohdi, all I have to do is look him in the eye. He does the woo woo howling thing though, not a bark. One of the things I like best about huskies is that they normally don't bark! So much nicer to hear the little songs they sing with their woo wooing.

Jimmy... tell that to all the people on the vet's  office last week when Ami got his rabies booster!  While he sat nicely next to me while waiting, there  was an owner and dog at the desk.  And Ami was singin' an opera.  Like he's never sung before.  He wanted to play with that dog sooooo bad.  Some people looked askance at the sounds others were trying to smother laughter.

OH, Amy, the vets office...I know it all too well Anybody here gotten there husky to bark on command? 1625187496 however, Kohdi manages to get a smile from even the most uptight people there Smile I did learn I have to not let him continue his concerts though...it can upset dogs in the back, as I found out from the receptionist. Kohdi is a clown, when he's not singing, he's tricking me into thinking he just wants to lay down, then he slides/crawls over to people to get some love, lol. I pull him back by his leash, he doesn't get up, he just lets me slide him back towards me, hahaha. Always gets laughter and smiles from his "ways" Wink

I trained my sibe to speak on command. Took about a week and it has been solid the rest of his life. He was actually a really quiet boy at first so training it was difficult at first. But on the rare occasion he made a sound I immediately said "speak" paired with a hand signal (I use the "quiet finger", index finger at my lips, as my hand signal) and immediately gave a great. He caught on real fast and I haven't been able to shut him up since. Wink All I have to do is use the quiet finger now & he will either bark or sing me a song immediately. Trained this 10 years ago and he's as solid as when he first learned.

Mine is the most food motivated dog ever so teaching her to speak was easy. Takes her a few "speak" commands with food waiting for her to bark. Other than that she never makes a sound.
