Leather knows english more than any other dog I've ever met! She can understand what people say almost perfectly, and always knows when you are talking about her! :D She also understands the spelling of some words like: walk, treat, dog, puppy, food, dish, and people's names.

I'm very proud of her! ;)

Does your dog understand you? :)

Mickey knows some words and I think he knows some names of food. He knows al his commands (sit, stay, ect...) and "get the ball" "bring it back" "get bigglesworth" "cookie" "drink" "tag" (and the whole idea of the game) "goodnight Mickey" means time to sleep and finally "going for a walk"

I hope he gets to know a lot more though. :)

Oh, YES! :eek: Chester know a lot of english, mostly phrases. I'll list some of them. Grandpa's House (his fave) Go to the Vet, Breakfast, Out, Ready for Night, Night?, Quit licking your feet (he has bad allergies),Daddy's home, Let Mommy get up, Do you want a bath? (he LOVES water), and this one's my fave- when he hears a car door in the neighborhood he wants to bark, so we always tell him "it was just the tv" and he settles down everytime! LOL! There are many more. :rolleyes:

Millie on the other hand hasn't been with us for very long but she's learning. In 3 mos she's learned, kibble :D, Let's go, Let Mommy get up, Ready for bed?, gimme some sugar, and treat.

Of course, they both know their basic commands, too.
