    Yes and no. My puppies are rather old now (9 and 10), so they don't respond as much to baby talk as much as they did when they were little. But when it's play time, rest assured that all of baby talk all resurface. Screaming "where's the ball?!?" gets them wagging every time lol.

    No talking down to the dogs here, but I do raise the pitch of my voice, and repeat certain phrases when I'm working with them, so they know I'm pleased with what they're doing. Conversely, if they're doing something they shouldn't, I lower the pitch of my voice. They know the difference between a high, light, "no", and a dark, rumbling, "NO".

      Do you ever mumble though?

      No mumbling. The little one takes any mumbling as an invitation to sit in my lap and sleep with her head against my chest. Who can work with that going on?

      Try writing about your dog/puppy during that, or else take a nap. lol

    I forgot to place in the question that there is a commercial on the radio. She teaches her dog to say 'I love you' and the dog sounds almost in pain. When the dog says it well for her she mumbles it back and I wondered whether this really happened or was it the commercial?
