    I just wondered what cool tricks other people have taught their dog(s) to do. I'm trying to come up with things to teach my dog. Here is what he knows so far:

    Sit
    Down
    Stay
    Wait
    Roll Over
    Shake
    High Five
    Crawl Bow
    Up (Stands up on his hind legs and walks)
    Wave
    Down Again (Lays down on his side-useful for examining his feet)
    Leave It

    I think that's it so far. I tried to teach him to beg (Sit up on his haunches), but he can't hold his weight up. I've also tried to teach him to speak, but he refuses to do so, so I gave up. Besides, it's probably better he doesn't bark lol.

    My Dog, Shatzie knows:

    Sit
    Down
    Roll
    Wait
    Give me Five
    Other one (it's where she uses the opposite paw to shake)
    Jump (she jumps through a hoop)
    Pirouette (she turns in a circle)
    Stand (she stands up and still...works great for grooming)
    Drop it
    Get it (fetch)
    Bring it to me (whatever she happens to have she brings it)
    Heel


    I think that is it..right off the top of my head anyway. One of our other dogs we trained to speak but Schatzie doesn't like to bark [​IMG]

    Sit
    down
    enough
    LEAVE IT
    drop it
    here
    away

    Those are the verbal commands. Tesla knows the following non-verbal signed comands:

    sit
    down
    no
    here
    stay
    drop it

    What about cats??
    sit up (beg) -all cats here have to know this one to be fed treats
    no - everyone and Nod knows the verbal and hand sign
    down - Nod (verbal and hand sign)
    leave it - Nod and Onyx
    here - Nod (verbal and hand sign)
    enough - everyone

    Nice dobie butts, duck walk. [​IMG]

    Gee guys, I don't think obedience or other performance commands are tricks. I always thought 'tricks' were like speak and wave and whatnot.

    I have a hardheaded partially deaf dog and 5 bassets, one of which is blind..... commands are tricks for us!! Especially the non verbal variety.
