What's That Magic Word

I know that we all have that one magic word that makes our dog go bonkers…I thought it would be a funny thread to start.
Whats Yours?
Chance just loves the word OUTSIDE
No matter what he is doing the moment I say that he stops whatever he is up to and runs right to the door and will pace until we take him out 😃
I know they can listen (when its what they want) :o

COOKIE

That will wake them up from a dog tired (lol) sleep

Squirrell

Basenji Mix

"Wanna eat?" Anything said with the word "eat" in it - and they both come to rally around the speaker. LOL

Car Ride - works every time

Squirrels!!!!

"who is that?" spoken like a surprised person would…
That is the clue to patrol the backyard

Biscuit
or
Dinnertime
or
Walkie?
or
Who's the Puppy?

Wanna go to the PARK?????
This gets everyone dancing by the door.

Anne in Tampa

Mailman! or Let's go walkies!

Oh, I forgot…Querk's special word is "Rosa" ...his first and best girlfriend. They haven't spent a lot of time together in over eight years...but all you have to do is whisper her name, and he runs all over the house looking for her 🙂

Sahara has several that make her Bonkers: Let's Go Bye-Bye, Squirrel, Pepper (my cat), Daddy's home, Blake (my son), Treat.:D

WannaEeeeaaaat? (You have to really emphasize the Eat part) - This get both dog and cats running to the kitchen.

Walkies also has that effect.

Ours is not really a word, but sounds… Scarlett goes nuts any time she hears walmart bags and the tags on her collar, that means its time for outside!!! We live in an apartment and the bag is for pickup, it really drives her nuts when i get back from shopping and put stuff away cause all she hears is those bags.

Kitty Cats! (will run to the window and look for any cats wandering around outside)

Go See (used to use this to tell Lexi to "go see" any new dogs that came into our area at the park…she'd go greet everyone at the opening to the field)

Outside

Load Up

Where's the light? (whispered) (Lexi will go NUTS staring at the ground waiting for the laser pointer to show up)

Are you CRAZY?! (this will activate play mode)

Did you hear something? I thought I heard something. (will alert them to check out the premises)

The kids also are very aware of the tags on their collars and know it's time to go OUTSIDE when that happens...this also applies when we're putting on our shoes or putting keys in our pockets. They are very smart little dogs. I love them!

Ours will drop everything when they hear the word "TREAT??!!!!!" ,,,,,,,,they also will do that when they hear the dishwasher opened,,,,,,,,,,,can you tell ours are a tad bit food motivated,,,,,;)

Also for mine… "go for a ride?" works too... ggg

Chance also loves it when I say "where's Lucy"
Lucy is his girlfriend who lives down the street from my parents house. When I visit he wants to run to see her. She is a basenji lab mix. 🙂

The other dogs name

Call one dog the other always comes first
