21 Spanish Dog Commands
to Teach your Pet

Using Spanish dog commands to train your pet can be both fun and effective. When you use a different language, the words have more meaning to your dog because they do not hear them in any other context.

Spanish commands are fairly popular mostly because it is the second most spoken language in the world (after Chinese), not because dogs understand this language, not even because the sounds are better for dogs.

You can actually use any other language to train your dog and practice it at the same time! We, humans, speak all the time but only sometimes we are speaking to our dogs. That is why using Spanish dog commands can help your dog pay attention, these will be words spoken ONLY when you are addressing him.

Using a different language will make your commands stand out!

Dogs are not good at understanding words, although we can teach them a few. If you use a dog command in a different language like Spanish, then it will be easier for your pet to pick it out from your day to day words.

For example: if you teach your pooch the command "down" but you also use the word often to ask your kids to "get down" from the table! your furry friend will learn that "down" is not always a reliable word to respond to.

Using commands in Spanish will make them clear and your pet will know to respond to them!

Impress your family and friends!

You will be able to show off your pet's skills as well as your knowledge of a second language!

Imagine your canine friend trying to jump on your mother in law as she enters, and you confidently saying "Fido sentado". It will blow their mind away!

Then have fun telling them about other dog training commands in Spanish they can try on your pooch!

It's fun!

It will make your training time fun! This is a key element of a good dog training session. If you are having fun, are relaxed and paying attention to your furry friend. Both, you and your pet will enjoy the time together. Your hound will learn faster too!
