    Have you ever tried it?

    I have an overly communicative Chihuahua, and when she starts sounding off to me about whatever, I will affect an accent, and say things like,

    "Such Impertinence! You will soon pay for questioning my power!"

    And things like that.

    Try it. It's fun. You can run the gamut, from Sci-Fi favorites to Comic Book bad guys, and even cheesy Western characters.

    I think dogs appreciate these types of efforts.

    I play that game with my 3 year old daughter.

    "Mua-ha-ha-ha! I am superpowerful BadDaddy! You will never defeat me! Mua-ha-ha-ha!"
    "I'm stronger than you! I have my milk! I will beat you!"

    Then we wrestle, play chase, or do play kung fu. Eventually, she wins, of course. But, I always make her earn it to help teach her persistence.

    I usually just stand really still and foreboding and my lab\husky freaks out.

    I like to stare my dog down. At first he gets all nervous and then wants to get reassured that I still love him.

    I can't do this with my big Shepherd/Wolf mix. He needs to hear about what a good boy he is, and all that kind of nonsense. He is strangely in love with me, and has become needy as he's gotten older. Or maybe it's the other way around.

    My dog usually threatens my wife and I in an oddly British accent. I'm not sure why, but it's more than a little unnerving.......

    No, but I do address my dogs as "dummy" "dum dum" or "dope" on a regular basis and they love it. I find it amusing.

    So, your dog looks like this?
  13. Slight thread drift here, but I was youtube-ing something this morning, and I swear I saw mellowing man on a Geico commercial featuring talking dogs. Since I had the commercial muted, I'm not sure if there were any accents involved....

    My mastiff is the same way. Very emotionally needy girl. Truly a toddler trapped in a giant dog's body.

    I'll give the supervillian thing a try this evening.

    Great thread, BTW.

    He didn't have a british accent, although he looked like he should have.

    Don't blame me. Dirty Harry was the HERO (albeit anti-hero) of the film.

    I said use the voice of the VILLAIN.
