Does your dog have a favorite word?  Chances are they DO . . . even if they don’t know what a “word” is or why you insist they can’t drink out of the toilet.

A website in England called OnBuy commissioned a study to find out which words dogs “love” the most by monitoring their heart rates.  (Not how fast their tail wagged?)  And the #1 thing they want us to say is . . . “Ready for a WALK?”

The average dog’s heart rate jumped 36% when they heard the word “walkies,” which is British slang for walking your dog.  Here are the top ten . . .

1.  Going for a “walk” . . . 156 beats a minute.  A medium-sized dog is normally at 115.

2.  “Dinner,” “food,” or “eat” . . . 152 beats a minute.

3.  “Treat” . . . 151 beats.

4.  “Get it” . . . 150.

5.  “Fetch” . . . 147.

6.  “Toy” or “get your toy” . . . 144.

7.  “Good boy” or “good girl” . . . 139.

8.  “What’s THAT?” . . . 135.

9.  Their name . . . 128.

10.  “Find it” . . . 124.
