I’m willing to bet your dog gets excited when they’re called a good boy/girl, but according to a new study, it might be their seventh favourite phrase. A website conducted the study by measuring the heart rates of dogs when you say certain words or phrases. Here are the top ten phrases that get dogs excited, ranked by the average heartbeats per minute:

  1. Walk
  2. Dinner/Food/Eat
  3. Treat
  4. Get it
  5. Fetch
  6. Toy
  7. Good boy/girl
  8. What’s THAT?
  9. Their name
  10. Find it
