2. Dogs can learn many words so keep them challenged by adding more and more. You can give all your dogs' toys, balls, bones, etc. names. When giving your dog the item, make sure you use a name to describe it every time so they can learn it. For example: “Find your chew bone!” “Go get your duck”. “Get your ball”. “Find your Kong”. Have fun with your dog and teach them lots of language!
