    I was talking to my friend about Dug the dog..
    If you ever watch the movie Up , Dug is the only cartoon dog who's is voiced like most people talk to their dogs....

    One of my dogs is a German Shepherd and besides driving me home when I am drunk...I find myself talking to her like she understands all the time... think she gets it or is polite to call me a moron....

    Anyway any other dog talkers?

    Lol...I think dogs definitely understand English. They just can't talk back. I grew up with dogs and we talked to them and they understood us...I'm convinced#

    My husband and I have cats....we talk to them and I think they understand us SOMETIMES.

    They do communicate with us..like when my male wants to go out on the terrace..or our fat cat wants the "good" wet food.

    But dogs, no doubt they understand us when we speak

    I'm a retard. Yes, I talk to my dog. Not in a conversational kind of way, but just as a way to say (like they can EVER fucking understand) how much we like having them around. It's weird, but I'll admit it. We love our dogs and they are a part of the family. Done and done.

    I have a 3 year old golden retriever. I talk to him because he understands tons of commands. I've never had a conversation with him though... I just pet him instead

    Sure. My dog is very vocal too. He has learned that his whimpering/whining annoys me. He walks around the house whining for no good reason. When I ask him "why are you crying?" he wags his tail and wants to play.

    Of course I talk to my dogs. I never met a dog owner that didn't.
