Re: german word for NO???

The actual word for "no" is "nein", as everyone else has pointed out already. Then there is also "pfui", as Amaruq says, which is used kind of like we use "ACK!" to tell dogs that what they're doing isn't allowed, using a word not usually in use in everyday speech.

Re: german word for NO???

I use both nein and pfui, pfui is the one I used the most until on day out of the blue I used nein and Max listened to that like he's known it all along. never heard it before and stopped on a dime. I was like now whats up with that? but it works better so i use it.

Re: german word for NO???

In my house nein is a more laxed command. Often when the dogs are goofing and I tell them to "nein" it is followed by ten, eleven, twelve..... which ususually gets me a comical look from them. It also usually gets me to playing with them and gettnig ALL of us into more trouble than the original "nein".

Pfui means NO! NOW! They seem to get that.

Re: german word for NO???

nein (nine) or pfui (pfoooey). I would use "nein" like "eh eh" but "pfui" like a definite "NO".
