Default What words do your dogs understand?

Ours all seem to understand some words...
Yum yums (treats)
Go byebye
Go for a walk
Park
Eat
And in Doom's case - Fetch.

What words get a reaction out of your dogs? How do they react to them? How can you tell that they know what your talking about? My sister and I were talking about it earlier and I'm just curious about other dogs' reactions.

Hmmm. Outside of commands, Buddy knows (the others may know these as well):

Breakfast
Dinner
Mommy
Daddy
Ball
Dog Park
Let's Go
Cat

Erm... I feel like there should be more...

Anyways, Buddy goes NUTS for breakfast and dinner, it's too cute. We use mommy and daddy in contexts like, "go find mommy" or "where's mommy" or "go get mommy." Ball is Buddy's life so that's an obvious one for him. Dog park gets a really excited dance out of him (or used to, we haven't been in awhile), let's go, normally gets a skip in his step, it's really cute, lol. Cat, said like, "caaaat" means, the cat is being bad and he goes to tell him so.

I've broken Morgan's words into two categories... since he is still training on commands.

Commands:
Come Here
Sit
Lie Down
Wait
Stay
Easy (ease off the leash)
Leave it/Leave him alone
Off

Other words:
Good Boy (he LOVES hearing this)
Outside/Do you need to go outside? (ears perk up, he'll run to the door and poke it with his nose)
Potty (cue to pee)
Poop (cue to... well... poop)
Walk (he does a puppy dance)
Park (more puppy dance)
Ball (looks for a ball)
Doggy ("doggy" is his loofa dog, he'll usually go poke it with his nose, sometimes will bring it back to me)
Rope (same as "doggy", but with rope toy)
Bone (same as "doggy" or "rope")
Bowl (puppy dance, runs to where his bowls are)
Are you hungry? (PUPPY DANCE!)
Ouch! (let go, game over, playing too rough)


There are probably more, but I just woke up. lol!

Thunder:
His name obviously, plus the usual obedience commands (sit, stay, come, heel, stand, down, wait, no, leave it - he knows these in both English and German)
And the tricks (paw, other paw, high 5, speak, "hup" which means to jump over whatever I'm pointing at)
Go Potty
Ball
Toy
Walk
Bye bye
Let's go
Time to eat
Go find John
Easy
Food/treat/are you hungry?/are you ready to eat?
Outside
Inside
Back up
Move

Sammy
His name and again, most obedience commands (sit, down, stay, wait, heel, come, leave it, no)
Quite a few tricks (turn light on/off, paw, other paw, high five, both paws, dance, sit up, spin, bang, roll over, crawl, and "arms" where he leaps into my arms)
Let's go
Walk
Bye Bye or ride
Just a minute (which usually means, I'll walk you in just a minute)
Bath
Outside
Inside

Scooter
Only a few obedience commands so far (sit, down, stay, come, leave it)
Let's go
Outside
Inside

Marley
Same stuff Sammy knows, minus the tricks

Juno
Not a whole lot yet, just her name and nicknames, let's go, and come (most of the time) are all we've mastered so far.

In addition to commands I don't think I could possibly list all the words that my dogs know and understand exactly what I am talking about.

They know and understand the names of every person in the house and regulars that come over. If I tell them to go see <insert name> they go directly to that person or attempt to locate them.

Orson knows the different names of his toys and when asked to bring a specific one, IE Wobbly Knobbly, he will bring THAT toy.......if you just say 'toy' he knows it's his choice and it's the first one he comes to, LOL

They understand "back door" as opposed to "front door" They know and understand all the basics.......walk, outside, inside, play, run, bath, eat, blah blah blah

The words/phrases that get the most reaction are:

Phoebe "Kitty Kitty" she gets very worked up because she LOVES to chase.

Orson is a tie between "Who's here, go see" and "Are you hungry?"
