Janba Posted August 23, 2008 Report Share Posted August 23, 2008 Both Mishka and Moss know their names. If I say it they react. I can say their name and give a command the other on ignores it. I can call one of them to me without the other - unless they think something like food is being offered. They definitely know their name and most frequently used nickname, Tosser and Belle, refer to them. I am aslo sure they know that the other dogs names refer to that dog. Cole on the other hand reacts the same way to all 3 names. Last night while he was lying on the lounge I said the names in turn, with a bit of time between them, and got exactly the same ear prick and tail wag but not to an unknown name like Fido. Doesn't matter which name or nickname I call I get Cole. A name followed by a command Cole does it. I am sure he thinks he's called Colemishkamossguggamgootosserbelle and all abreviations of it. Either that or he's not going to miss out on anything. Do your dogs really know their names? ETA This has me slightly perplexed which is why I have posted.
