Speak – the Full List (for Dogs)

2016 - 1

“Jackpot” is not on the full list of “Speak”. According to this infographic, which I found on Pinterest, the world record for ‘dog words’ is 1,022 while the total vocabulary for the average dog is 20 words. I hope you enjoy this list of Commands, Things and Names.

Though Jeanne began her career technical writing, her love of romantic-suspense, whether it be present, future or in an unknown galaxy inspired her to write the novels she wanted to find in bookstores. Since marrying, Jeanne and her husband have lived from the arctic to the tropics, as well as from yacht to off-grid mountain home. She loves using vivid colors and flowing shapes in her oil paintings as well as creating edible landscapes. At present, she is finishing writing the Chatterre Trilogy and working on a new episode for The Sea Purrtector Files. You can always find out what she is working on and/or contact her at: www.jeannefoguth.com.

  1. My Collies knew more than 200 words. There is a method to teaching them. They proved in 2001 or 2002, Europe, that a dog has deductive reasoning and can learn unlimited words. I’ve outlined a book about it. They are missing the tiny part of the brain that rules communication. Other than that, their brains are the same as a 3 year old, alhough some develop to a higher level, 4, even 5. However, they are much like drug and alcohol babies, as that part of the brain for these children is injured, generally. The dogs don’t have the function, and are handicapped as well. I took a class when I was a fost-adopt class. Doctor put 2 brains on the board. 30 of us could not tell the difference. One was a 3 yr old, the other was a dog’s brain. No one knew, and we were all educated. Of course, the child grows. Even when old, the dog is still a baby. But notice that babies who do not know language can even communicate without using words. All very fascinating. Only thing is, it takes TIME and ENERGY to teach your dogs words. AND, without eye attention, steady and in a sit position at first, it won’t work. My dogs were called The Talking Dogs. Nicknamed by Dr. Masterson. Higher level of communication than people realize, as they teach basic words and commands and figure that’s all they can learn. Hmmmm. Not so. Jeanne’s blogs are so interesting!!!!!
