Ok let's have a bit of fun.

we all have cute nicknames for our doodles...thats a given.

BUT do any of you have a doodle that can't do a certain command and you end up having to use a silly word or something different and then your doodle listens and does a certain command or trick?

here's some real examples:

1. I have a friend down the road that has a YELLOW LAB that will not sit down unless they say the word KITCHEN :shock:

2. Kirby will sit immediately if you say DUBBA :shock: or specifically say SIT DOWN Kirby

3. Max learned the word SETTLE to lie down when a young puppy

4. If we say NITEY NITE TIME max will run into his crate...peanut goes and hides :roll:

Nite Nite sends Annabelle flying down the hall and up on the bed and she does a 180 in mid air so she is facing the door when she lands

"excuse me" is what I use to grab her attention when she does something she shouldnt be doing, she knows she better listen up fast

used that with my labs too - my neighbor used to laugh when I would do that with Heidipooh and Mollyann, said they listened better than their son :lol:

when it's time for us to eat - I just say living room and off she goes, she isnt allowed at the table while we eat - of course she can see us as the living room is attached to the dining area but she must be on the other side of doorway, I can say go lay down and 2 seconds later she's right there but with Living room, she goes and stays until we are done

Anytime I have to leave the house without Denver,
I tell him I am "going to work." He goes straight to his crate .
If the cats are fighting with each other we tell Denver
"Go See"and he will go and get in between the cats and breaks it up.
At bedtime I have always given my cats a few treats and since I
have had Denver i wanted him to be in on it. Denver sits on the beds and watches as I throw some treats on the floor for the cats. I then put a hand
ful of kibble off to the side and this is what Denver watches for.
The cats go around and eat up their treats and always leave the little pile in the middle. Denver starts to get excited when he sees all the treats gone except for this bit and then stares at me and puts his paw on my arm. I tell him "Clean it up" and off he goes to eat the "cat treat treasure"
The cat treat treasure is actually Dog kibble (Canidae) and that is the reason why the cats do not eat it and Denver thinks he is getting some of the sacred cat food that he is otherwise never allowed to have.

:wink: :wink:

Sue ... so clever with the kibble. Childless, I incorporated a phrase my mom always used on babies ... "Lay Little Heady Down". Used only at bedtime it's the signal that Mom is ready to hit the hay and Ebbe is too. The other ... when she doesn't stop when I stop on a walk, a simple HEY! seems to do the trick.

Annmarie ... THREE! I'll be honest, we would all love you to do it because the stories would be Great! But ... THREE! Look at Peanut -- multiply -- think of your jelly cat Giraffe. THREE :shock: But I must admit ... that third one would be a very lucky doodle.

Haha, Mary--you did nothing the rest of us haven't done!!

"Cougar!" is the command I use when I want Dakota to go into a crouch and intensly wait for his ball to be thrown! This is the best "cougar" photo I have, but it's even funnier when he crouches behind a boulder or a big clump of sagebrush. When he does this he is "hiding" from his prey as any good cougar would do! Of course, I can always see him (or at least parts of him) but I'm sure he thinks I can't!

For Cinnamon, "Go watch" means look out the front window, "go see" means look out the back. Works well when you want to distract her.

She has no idea what a pig's ear is, to her it's "dessert!!"

She knows that "come" just means I want to know where you are and come here to my area. It's when I stick on "Here" than she will come to me. Sometimes I say "come here" and sometimes I say just "here" and she comes to me and sits in front of me like "What?"

She gets a sharp "HEY" when I really want her attention usually followed by a "don't eat that - drop it!!"

:roll:

Sue-

That treat routine is too cute. What a great mommy you are for thinking of it for sweet Denver.

Dianne- I'd love to see Dakota in action with that cougar move. How about a video? (although I don't know how to post them myself!)

As for Lexi- our stupid little embarrasing phrases are limited to leftovers from when my kids were small.

"Seepy time" sends her to her crate for bed.
"Potty pot" sends her to the door to be let out to releive herself.

Maddie and Lexi
