25 Japanese Dog Commands To Teach Your Dog! (2022)

Depending on the dog breed you’re working with, dog training can be difficult. Some, like the Border Collie and Australian Shepherd, are naturally intelligent. That’s the case for many working dogs, as owners breed them specifically to be task-oriented and obedient.

Before you jump into teaching dog obedience commands in Japanese, you must work on consistent and correct pronunciation. If you pronounce “mate” as the English word, then later learn its actual pronunciation, it’s tough to convince your puppy to respond to the new sound.
