Very often lol. Sometimes when I'm telling him what to do as well, sometimes in amusement, irritation, pretend indignance, lol lots of situations. Not it anger, I never really get angry with him though.

It's a dog lol. Most of what you say is gibberish to them. Tone and body language, that's a different story.

I say "what a puppy!" to him more than I swear at him though.

Well I don't swear which is odd in itself and I don't use slurs of any sort. The only names I use is "naughty" when talking to Willie.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Kaylee gets called Buttface, Stupid, Fat Cow and Trouble on a daily basis.

She actually tends to come better when I call her buttface, and that resulted in a lady at the dog park asking my friend who was with me in a horrified voice if I had named her Buttface because she came so well to it.

Also had a lady at my training club ask if Kaylee's name was stupid

Our Obedience trainers encourage people to give their dog a "bad dog" name, so as not to give their name any negative connotations. I usually just say "naughtyyyy", but I do think it has more to do with tone than anything.

I would NEVER call ANYONE fa***t... and I don't cuss at them, because to me, those words are hateful regardless. I do call them biatches, douchebags, and doofuses on occasion.

I call Ozzy a lot of names. Mostly jerk and jacka**. Other names too, so I really don't have a problem with it. Enzo gets called dumb a lot though . Even though she's really not dumb at all.

I do quite often, I call Kona many many names, Fatdog, Heifer, Dopey, mostly ones pertaining to her weight. Crackhead is a common one too.

I don't use racial or homosexual slurs, as I have a many of gay friends and just think that's unclassy
But you know what, I can look at Kona and say in a yippy voice "Do you wanna jump off a bridge?" or "Can I cook you for dinner?" and she'll just LOVE it.

It's all in how you say it.

B is called jackass fairly regularly. Probably other stuff, too. I don't yell at him, however, and he has no idea what jackass means.

I'm a swearer, though I can control it. No slurs, however.

When she's being a pain in the butt, I call her Goober. When she's reaaaaaaaaally being a pain, I've been known to call her a butthead. Rarely though.
