Fritz is such a cute name, I love it!  I don’t think that would cause any problems teaching him commands. Smile

So super cute. The puppy and the name. And no, I don’t think it will be confusing. Just try using slightly different inflections.

AWE!! Is it a weimaraner?

I don’t think you have to worry about the name and commands. It’s the tone of voice and the repetition that teaches them to do “commands”, so It hink you are fine.

If he is a weimaraner, I would suggest that you get him around lots of people and other dogs right out of the gate. They tend to be a bit skiddish. Socialization will be your biggest challenge, I think.

Unbelievably cute!!!!!

Awwww, he’s adorable!

It’s best to avoid names that sound a lot like commands.

But also remember dogs don’t understand English! All they know is that a certain series of sounds means to do something. You don’t have to use “sit” to have him sit, you can use another command like “place” or “perch”, or even something totally different like “cheese”.

He is so adorable!!!    And he shouldn’t be confused by the commands–our lab knows all of hers in three languages. We don’t use her name at all for obedience, though, just the command, and save the name and all the nicknames for when she is getting her scratchies.

I’ve heard of what you’re talking about – one syllable names that sound like commands, so I understand the question!  What if you just added a “y” on the end and call him Fritzy?  It is such a cute name for such a CUTE puppy!  Congrats 🙂

SOOO CUTE!!!!  You could switch up the commands…instead of sit, say down.  Instaid of lay down, say lay, and for off furniture, say off.  Our dog, Brutus, knows visual commands as well.  If we hold one finger in the air, he sits, a point to the ground means lay down, and a hand in the air means high five.  THey are very smart, im sure he’ll figure it out!
