The word most loved by pooches is ‘walkies’, raising heart rates to 156 BPM.

The word also ‘walkies’ has an average resting increase of a whopping 36 per cent.

The words ‘dinner’, ‘food’, and ‘eat’ increased our household pups’ heart rates to 152 BPM, an increase of 32 per cent.

The survey was carried out by OnBuy who spoke to 4,389 pet owners across the UK to uncover their dogs’ favourite words.
