Hi, everyone!
Xena, our seven year old adopted from a breeder, just picked up on Saturday, maltese
doesn't seem to respond to her name. Is it possible that because she was with so many other dogs that she doesn't know it?

I would think she would look up or respond somehow to her name?

TIA,
Deanne

I had always thought it was the tone of voice more then the actual name... I could be wrong though, it has happened before!

You know if your dog knows his name by his response to it.

When teaching a dog to recognize its name, use treats. When you say its name "NAME" and he looks towards you, reward that behavoir. If he doesn't, get his attention with the treat. Keep doing this until your dog responds to his name without the use of any treats.

Every dog should recognize its name.
