Every dog has a word that gets them excited. It doesn't matter what they're doing; if they hear it, it's game on. For some dogs, it may be W-A-L-K, for others it could be T-R-E-A-T-S, but for Xena, her magic word is C-H-I-C-K-E-N! While she was taking a nap, her human Coach Isaac went through a few words until he said the magic word, causing her eyes to fling open.
Dogs can also get excited about other things, too! Take little Tinto, for example. He loved his first bath so much that he made sure to vocalize his excitement. Just wait until Tinto discovers swimming pools, we're sure he'll go crazy!
