mine for my dogs is "Do you want a snackie?" or "watch out" they are always up under my feet.

I say stay a lot - I make my dogs wait patiently while I put food in their food bowls or if I am getting treats. Also they have to stay and wait for me to cross the door's threshold before they are allowed to follow me outside.

"Bad dog!" haha; that really is probably the phrase most spoken to my bad little weiner dogs. Other common phrases include, "You are the laziest dog in the world, "Let's go for a walk," and "Noo"...

I would say "get out of the kitchen" comes out most often. My hubby swears this is not a command but it gets them out from under my feet. Next popular would be "Stay". When people come to the house they have been trained to sit while we open the door, unfortunately the stay sitting part escapes them.

For Oliver Kat, it's "sleep", followed by a "good boy!" He's amazing.
