You do know that your dog doesn't speak English, don't you? You can say anything you want, I think you should say rocketing. grin

I boringly said weewees (and only realised I always said it in a silly high pitched voice when the dog looked blankly at DH when he said it).

I was going to use weewees but my dc find it hilarious and distract dpup.

Pee pee and poo poo?

I use wee wees but I think you should say rocketing now grin

I use 'hurry up'.

I'm going to steal the term 'rocketing' for when we come home and let pup out of her room and she zooms about the house up and down the stairs at about a zillion miles an hour for a few minutes. Its like she's checking the house is all still here...really quickly grin

Busy Busy!

and then you can say, big busys or busywhizzes.

trinity we call that dingo-ing.

the pups love to dingo....current pup is the record holder, all down stairs rooms visited, on the way out and back. A double circuit of the coffee table, out and back, snatching a toy from each room, and not tripping over the kitchen step.

I use 'go quick' .

TrinityIsAReindeer Fri 10-Jan-14 16:21:36

not tripping over is very good

lolly pup fell up the stairs yesterday whilst 'rocketing' grin

Thank you everyone

I'm using hurry up, but was thinking of using different words depending whether he's doing a pee or a poo. Is that advisable, or is it best to stick to a "catch all" grin command?

we use 'go toilet' and she does!

Go weewees.

We have only just realised that her exasperating habit of peeing on my new cream rug just lately is because I also ask my three year old did if she needs to "go weewee?" The dog promptly pees on the floor. She has just been doing what she is told!

The moral of this story is, choose your words wisely!!
