I tell them, "Take care of my house, girls, if anyone comes in, Bite them!" And then I always add, "except Dad."
When I leave them in the car, I will say, "Guard!" They have no idea what I want them to do by "guarding" but anyone that might be noticing, doesn't know that, and chances are pretty good they will bark.
