Words & Phrases: Where - How to teach your dog to talk with buttons
"Where" is a somewhat complicated concept at first, but the ease at which you can model it ensures your dog will understand quickly. It is also perhaps one of the words your dog will be the most grateful to have learned, as they're always excited to see the different people and animals they know, and likely wonder where they are often.
Where: how can I teach my dog?
The easiest and most straightforward way to teach your dog the concept of "where" is by asking them about their favorite toys or people. You can even make a game out of it!
