Name recognition

At what age have your pups started responding to their names? Our pup knows "sit" and "heel", but he really doesn't respond when we say his name. He's 12 weeks old.

Do you give him treats if you call his name and he comes? Treating they will learn it a little faster. But he should be getting it soon.

When I picked out my dog I was at a girl friends parents house. She drove me back from bar late one night. She said she her parents dog had pups, and they were probably hiding in the barn. I hadn't never saw any of them before that night.

We shine the headlights of the car into the barn, I get out of the car and say "Brutus Come". A 7 week old pup comes barreling out of the barn at full spead to me. I grabbed a stick on the ground and threw it 10 or 15 feet he retrieved it and brought it right back.

So I have to say a good dog should know its name before you ever meet it.

This is a true story.

Whats his name? If it has too many sylables that can be difficult for them to understand. Emphasize one sylable... preferable the first. Many dogs with long names will only really recognize one syllable as their name.

Also if you call your dog other things then his name he may not know what to respond to.

There may not be enough reinforcement of his name. Limit the amount of words you use when talking to your dog and say its name more often.

Dogs speak with each other through only a handful of sounds... Growls, soft barks, load barks, whines and wimpers. A dogs name can mean alot of things depending on your tone of voice.

If he has heel down at 12 weeks he obviously doing quite well. It will come with time.

One syllable name, Floyd. I'm sure he'll get it. Part of it might be stubborness on his part.

    • You eat bass and you're going to rip on some grapefruit Shandy? Your self-righteousness knows no bounds.
    • let us know when there weren't racial tensions.
    • I was thinking the same thing, but when I don't see it listed with the features I don't want to go off my own assumption. I sent Tebben a couple emails 2 days ago and hadn't heard anything yet.  I'll give Berkon a try and see what they say.
    • There is a side bi-fold ramp that is similar to the one in the back. He had an aluminum "blank" made to fit in its place so that he could use it as a regular trailer if needed. He still has the ramp and it bolts in when you need it by removing the blank. Not the same brand, but would look similar to this with the side ramp installed...
       
    • Strange, there were racial tensions in 1992, i wonder if there's a coinsidence... Clinton model of divide and conquer.
    • Just remember, for every 1 wackjob chiro there's probably 10 surgeons that don't give a rip about you unless they're able to get surgery approved.  Meaning their advise and prescribed narcotics/injections will eventually lead you to a pay day.  We can't be so naive now folks, but let's all dive into this one case and attempt to destroy the practice while we turn a shoulder to the other, that happens WAY more often.    That number of 10-1 is pretty light by the way.
    • Just for reference, Clinton was elected in 1992 and took office in January 1993. 
    • Sorry I forgot to add, I didn't build on this one, already came built so the brakes were on already. (I built my last one however) But I did look at the Berkon frames before I bought because I was going to build again myself and pretty sure that they had the brakes already. (At least the ones I looked at in their catalog) But I feel like any brand at that size should come with the brakes already, since a 20' house is going to go over the 3k limit.
    • Thanks for the reply trav102, the Berkon frame looks pretty similar to the Tebben and it looks like they do galvanized trailers pretty regularly. Did yours come with trailer brakes?  Or is that something I'd have to add on myself if I go over 3000#?
    • Do the sides in the front come off For your ramps your do they drop down and you use your own?
