Repeating commands

In training, use your dog's name once before a command to get his attention, for example, "Buddy, come." The quickest way to teach your dog to ignore you is to use his name repeatedly and with changing inflections of your voice.

Get into the habit of giving a command once and in a normal tone of voice — a dog's hearing is 80 times better than yours. Repeating commands teaches your dog that he can ignore you, and changes in inflections from pleas to threats don't help, either. Our experience has been that most people are unaware of how many times they repeat a command. Give the command and if your dog doesn't respond, reinforce the command or show him exactly what it is you want him to do.
