Words Dogs Love To Hear The Most

The researchers polled 4,389 pet owners from around the UK to find out which words and phrases elicit the most responses from dogs, tracking their heart rate when each of the most prevalent terms was stated.

It's no surprise that 'walkies' took first place, with a dog's heart rate soaring by 36% when they hear the term.

Other words that make our four-legged pals happy are 'treat', 'get it', 'fetch', and 'get your toy'.

I have two gorgeous Rottweilers, and whenever the term 'walkies' is spoken, the reaction is similar to what you'd get if England won the World Cup. My spouse and I must now spell the term to each other.
