How long does it take for a dog to learn its name?
That depends on how consistent you are with the name training. Realistically, a puppy of any breed can “learn” its name as quickly as 1-3 days. All that’s needed is that you associate the pup’s name with it getting attention from you. This includes stuff such as feeding time, treats, going out for a walk, playtime at home, and petting on the couch.
If you use your pet’s name for all such activities, it will quickly learn that you saying its name means interaction of any kind. If you are not consistent enough, however, or if you use a wide collection of nicknames, your dog may need a few more days or even weeks to pick up on the pattern.
Essentially, dogs don’t so much “learn” their names as they learn that hearing that particular sound means that you are calling them, referring to them, and/or want to interact with them. Once your pup learns its official name, you can start using as many different nicknames as you want. You can even teach your dog several different names – one for training, a nickname for food, another nickname for playtime, etc.
