    Hopefully this isn't the chat:

    Honey, please go back to the store and get me some medicated heel pads, they are down by the hose. Make sure you get the mark-down. I need to sit or whoa I'm gonna fall over! OK???

    I use "Get it" on marks...kinda happened by accident but it stuck.

    My go play or let loose word are "hie on"...not exactly the correct usage for the terms but it's what my uncle always said to his pointers and I liked the sound of it.

    Name on marks. But around the house is OK. But if walking out the door I use easy, which means slow don't go like a wild child.

    I use old school "Hie On" as release. No confusion. Back on blinds, name on marks.

    With dogs that also compete in ob we have issues at times with them knowing the drill and releasing themselves when a "judge" says "exercise finished". The most comical command mess up happened years ago when "grandama was visiting and wanted Shadow to "get off" the couch, I grew up with no dogs on the furniture. Dog given the command "down". So Shadow who was sitting on the couch next to her dropped into a down on the couch. She did as told but should have been told "off".
    "Over" is the big one for us. While "over" is a common ob command for jumping I must remember to use "jump".

    That kind of break draws at least a 3 minute sit stay in my house. The timer gets set. It tends to be the 11 year old that draws the penalty! Even at 11 she is one of those that if you give an inch she will take a mile.

    Butt head around the house.
    Come on butthead, instead of heel or here, get out of the closet butt head, come on miss piggy
    When I ask them "do you wanta eat" their teeth start chatering and jump around like kangeroos. i make them atleast put their butts on the ground before setting food bowls down.
    TT to pee and poop and "good dog" or "go play" for release
    This is not advice, just me
