Of course, mainly when he has been so good!

I try not to most of the time, but it depends on which dog and what they're doing.

Xavier doesn't listen that well with baby talk. Say he brings me a toy, I tell him to drop it... if I say it in a sweet or baby talk voice, he just looks at me like, "what...?" but if I use a more normal or commanding tone, it's dropped immediately and he's ready to fetch again.

Sophie loves baby talk. She's a long haired dachshund and absolutely the most loving dog we've ever owned. She loves to snuggle and get hugs, and if you use a rough tone with her, she looks like you've destroyed her entire world. She's very dramatic.

B'Elanna responds best (so far) to a normal/commanding tone when you want her to do something and a baby talk/excited voice when she's being praised. So she's still on the fence

I find myself doing it with Ruger sometimes. Usually when I'm telling him he's my "most handsomest boy" and calling him Ruga-Ru.

Yes, I do alot of the time. I hate to admit it, but I even have a "voice" for him and make him talk back to me. Ridiculous, I know, but fun. Newlie likes the soft voice and usually runs over to be petted. However, I do have to switch to the commanding voice when I am giving commands or correcting him for some infraction.
