I'm curious - what words create the most excited response from your Cockapoo dog?

Alvin and Simon react instantly to "Walk." They run over to the closet housing their leashes and practically knock the door down.

Simon will run from the remotest area of the yard to the back door in an instant if he hears "Cookie."

Alvin and Simon love their Bichon buddy Ben. "Where's Ben?" prompts excited whining and a rush to the couch in front of the bay window overlooking the driveway.

And your Cockapoo? What words cause him to **** his head (is that where the label CockerPoo came from?) or start whining or jumping?

Haha.

Nacho goes nuts for -

'where's giraffe?' - (now a sort of threaded rag rather than what was once a giraffe)
'walkies'
'What is it?'
'find it'

The response to all of these is a mad dash, lots of sniffing and JUMPING! x

Short phrases (1 to 3 words at the most) elicit the best responses. Somewhere I read that anything longer than a few words sounds like "yada yada yada" to dogs.

Bertie reacts to 'Ready' as I say this when I'm about to throw something. Also, if someone says my name he goes dashing around trying to find me. Oh and if you say 'tissue' he starts sniffing around your pockets and sleeves looking for one as he just loves them!

Ha ha, they are so clever . Pepper jumps to attention to 'walk' and 'do you want a biscuit?' also runs off searching and sniffing to 'where's your frisby ?' and runs and jumps up into the bay endow when the doorbell rings :)

Beau's favourites are:-

Where's Madeleine (my daughter who is at sixth form and when she hasn't pinched the car I take Beau with me to collect her) makes Beau jump at the front door whilst looking at her lead.
Where's Monkey
Where's Octopus (two favourite toys)
Walk
Need to go out (she tells us she needs to go to the toilet by bouncing off the nearest door and staring at us as she runs past us to the back door so if we say these 4 words she knows we have understood and bounces up and down at the back door)! :)

First and foremost

Lolly - her bestest friend, Janet (Flounder1) dog
Walk - I'm surprised she doesn't dash to the door, but sits bolt upright and totally alert.
Outside or Garden - both mean she can go in the garden. She'll dash to the door then :D
Find... whoever I name, esp hubby or one of the boys. She'll start to wander round very keen to find, but won't go too far with out me following.

'what dis'! (what's this in silly voice) will have Billy come running from anything or anywhere. Usually as he associates this with some sort of food or treat on the way!

We get the most response from:-

"Cat alert" when we see a cat in the garden, she knows to run out without barking.

She hasn't caught one yet.

On the other hand she never chases the family cat.

Bella gets excited at lots of words (and does that really cute tilt of her head that is just so adorable!), the main ones being:

"Food"
"Sardines" (We give her sardines in tomato sauce for tea which she loves and it makes her coat so shiny)
"Where's mum/dad/Charlotte?"
"Find it!"
"Squirrel!" (she loves chasing squirrels up trees)
"Do you want to go out/for a Wee?"
"Birds"
"Ball"

Pushca loves walkies but I say it so excitedly she would probably get excited if I said bananas
Squirrels and foxies
Chicken
Where's your lead or ball usually ensures a frantic spin around too
