    Quote:Mine know their names, they also know their group name (Puppies). Fluffy comes running when I call her, Waddles isn't so enthusiastic but if food is involved she's like a sumo wrestler with snow shows on.

    do they recognize the name, or just the tone of your voice? My dog was that way, didn't matter what I said, in a certain tone, it all meant the same thing, "Go outside"....!
