|Castlemaid||LOL! That is hilarious! She was probably just waiting for signal to start the crazy play again, and decided that your ZZZZZZZZZZ was it! Then you laughed and she saw that as encouragement/reinforcement, and made the connection.|

i know you weren't training. your dog just picked it up.
when the mailman comes sometimes he gets out of the truck
to give my dog the mail and pet. the mailman raises his arms
as if he was going to hug someone. when he does this my dog
spins and sometimes barks. he wasn't training him.

How did my dog learn this??????
Not sure this is the correct forum, but since it largely involves silliness and messing around, I figured I'd put it here rather than litter up serious forums...
So, the other day, my mom and I were playing with Molly, and she got uncontrollably hyperactive and jumped all over the chairs, the sofa and us, so Mom called her over for a belly rub, which for some reason, makes her sleepy.
Now, I know this is pathetic, but I have a grossly childish sense of humor, and I thought it would be amusing to see if I could get her to be hyper again, and I said jokingly, 'Nooo, let's make her hyper! Let's shock Molly's adrenal glands!' And I laid my index fingertips to her back and made a ZZZZZZZZZZ!!! sound, imitating electricity. Molly obliged and went nuts again.
Now she thinks this is a command, and if you put your fingertips to her back and make a ZZZZZZ sound with your mouth she reliably whirls in circles, wags manically and jumps all over you.
How the heck does a dog learn this? What word/gesture/facial expression could she have picked up on???
