Better word than "go"?


I'm teaching my ***** (sorry. my dog's a female) how to pull my wheelchair. I already use "go" for another command, so I need a different short-syllabelled word for "go" and "pull" is too close.
I want a colorful, maybe graceful, single word (up to 2 syllables) to use after she's harnassed-up with her butt to me and I'm ready for her to start pulling.

She's a 4 year-old pit if that helps any.

Any suggestions anybody?
Sorry for the dumb question but I didn't know who else to ask.
Thank you.

To many syllables. She has a vocabulary over 200 words (she goes to dog school), and too many sounds running together messes her (any dog) up.

How about walk or walk on. She already knows what the word means so it shouldn't be too confusing

It may not end well for Titanoman if he says mush and the dog hears rush. Especially if he has her harnassed to the chair and there are obstacles about.
Sorry man, no disrespect intended but the imagery is kind of humorous

Seriously, I'm happy for you that you are out having fun and making the most of life

With a pit, I feel sorry for you if she sees a cat.

You're right. Next I need a word for "please don't chase anything while my chair is hooked to you!"

Sounds like "up" which we already use to bring her out of "down" (lie down).

Boogie...Maybe.
"Woooooa" is to close to "no".
Unless I emphasize the "a" (woe-a)
Hmmm...
