Yep! They understand human, know how to spell, can tell time(hey woman, din din time) understand pointing fingers, body language . We don't give them enough credit. And I'm sure this dumb human forgot something !

I can ask mine "Where is your dad?" and he will run to wherever my husband is, or "Where is your piz?" and he will go find the last spot he "buried" his bully stick (pizzle) in the house and bring it back to me.

If he hears someone say the word "poodle" (as in "Look at the poodle!") he turns toward them and wants to be admired.

Oh yes, Molly totally understands human speak.....I'm still learning 'Dog Speak' LOL!
Any sentences containing the words Go, Cookie,eat,Molly,Toy, & any actions like putting on a jacket or changing clothes, putting shoes on, picking up keys, open up frig door or cupboard where her treats are, all warrant immediate, undivided attention, & concentration!!! I find myself trying to sneak out like when my kids were babies!!!!!!

Default Yes!

Rocky is two and a half years old and definitely understands certain words. He is very intuitive and observes very carefully, so understands inflection and responds. He knows from the tone of my voice when I am speaking to another person what is going on. He is always present and rarely lets me out of his sight. Of course, he is also willful and has a sense of humor so is very playful. I have rarely raised my voice with him, so he is very sensitive to those few times when I speak above a normal, relaxed voice. His favorite word is "walk," although there are others that he clearly understands aside from direct commands like "easy" when he lets his leash get a bit tight, "sit," "lie down," "heeere," (not "here") when I want him to come and "heel." If I am leaving the house and tell him to be a good boy, he immediately lies down and watches me as I close the door behind me. He also understands "daddy", "mummy," "park," "treat", and "hamburger," and "Rockburger," (he eats a pound of raw, lean hamburger a day with a few cups of his prescription kibble, as he is allergic to poultry, although he remains very lean at 66 pounds and 30" at the withers). He is still learning and always happy. Sorry to get a bit off-topic, but you know how it is when it comes to loving our poodles.

I find if I have a conversation with Shasta including a bunch of the words she knows in a common tone, she gets nervous and starts yawning. For example if I say (words she knows are in parentheses,) "Shasta" is a "good girl" who goes "by-by" to look for "kitties" and "doggies". She is a "pretty girl" with "treats" that will "sit" in her "crate" with her "toy." "Poodle" likes her "treat" and she likes a "toy" but will "walk" anywhere for a "ball". "Sissy" will go "night-night" but will go "out" when she wants to "go pee." My "good girl" will "get it" if I don't tell her "no" when she sees a "birdie." And I have to say "off" when Sissy "comes" and gives "Momma" "kisses" when she should be "hep-ah (jumping)" into "auto." I say "back" when she "comes" for some "love" if she should be "down." And on and on......

Try it with yours. I think you will see they not only know the words but don't like it when you use them inappropriately.

Rocky responds to many words, but one that is especially fun is "kiss."
