Default Calling multiple dogs at once via one nickname.

In our house when we just want one of the spoos to do something we use that spoo's name or nickname. But if I want all three to come or do something at once I tend just to call poodi. It started out as a family joke and now has become a name they all listen to and answer to which is useful sometimes.

I was wondering if other people use a nickname for all of their pack or if they just call each dog individually. If you do have a nickname what term do you use?

Both Spud and Tonka have been known to answer to 'Bonehead'.

I'm pretty sure they never knew what it really meant... lol

I think the universal name here is 'Poodles!' but also if I just say 'Come!' without a name, they all come anyway.

HA HA! I love it I won't tell you what I call my little ones.... Most the time when I want all the babies at once, I will say "Pommies" although not all my babies are Poms, they all come running. Remington thinks he needs to make sure they all come too, if they don't and it is always Bailey Bear who is last to come in, Remington will nip him to get him going.

I bet "Treat" would bring 'em all running. Heck, you could probably whisper it and they'd still hear.

Trillium...you have to call your clan? They aren't always wherever you are? LOL

When I want ALL of them (and for some reason they aren't staring up at me already) I call GIRLS. No they aren't all girls...but they don't mind.
