At 10 months, Angel knows:
sit
wait
shake
fetch (retrieving her ball/ toy)
bounce (catching a ball bounced high mid-air)
go to bed... though she doesn't usually stay there
rings a bell on the back door when she wants to go outside
toss (catch a treat or toy tossed underhand into the air)
bye-bye (not exactly a trick, but she runs straight to the car and waits by the door when she hears this)
give kisses

My daughter is trying to teach her to catch a ball balanced on her head, and Angel CAN do it, but she doesn't really seem to like that one.

We're currently trying to teach her to wipe her own paws when she comes in, which in my mind, would be the best "trick" yet.

If you get that one figured out please let me know how you did it! I can get Woody to shake off the water or snow with the command shake...but I'd love to teach him how wipe off his paws!

I think my two favorites are "show me the poop" and "Be Chewbaka"

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

WOW this is fabulous. I have to teach this to Renny. My backyard is now totally covered with leaves....same color as his poop! I usually go out with him (with a flashlight if it's dark), but it's still difficult to find them with all the leaves!

Uhh.. Sit, lay down, and high five? Lol. But we're still working on it at @ 4 1/2 months old.

Great thread, though! I've been trying to think of what to teach him next and reading everyone's posts definitely gave me some ideas.

He learned it on his own, we were outside and I knew that he had done a poo, so I was half talking to myself and Dex "OK Dex where's your poo poo?" and he walked up to it, sniffed it and walked away. So it just became kind of a routine, ok Dex where'd poo poo and he goes over to it, sniffs it and shows me. Weird dog

Casey knows...
Sit
Down
Stay
Come (release for stay)
Stand
Jump
Wait
Ok (release for stay)
paws up (puts paws up on whatever object you point to)
Off (release for paws up....or whenever he jumps up on the counter)
Shake
High Five
Other paw (for shake and high five)
Find it
Target (touches a specific object)
Fetch
Catch (treats tossed in the air)
we're currently working on Bow

i think that's it....unless peeing on command counts as a trick
he also knows many phrases...Go to bed, go to your rug, find your bone, find your chuckit, (all other toys are far inferior and don't deserve a name according to him ) Drink your water, ( he always forgets to drink his water before he goes out to pee! ) and DON'T LICK THE DISHES!! He thinks he needs to pre-wash the dishes in the dish washer. what a clown!

Buddy and Hiro know:
Sit
Stay
Lay down
Leave it (to include treats on both paws, we're working on the nose)
Drop it
Come on
Go to bed
Get out (useful when I'm in the kitchen or bathroom!)
Up
Down
Off

Oh, and Hiro knows Dance and Stand, but that's because he's a prancey little guy and loves to jump so we channeled it.

More tricks are pending next month when we get into housing and I have a backyard for them

Smart puppies you all have.

Both dogs know the general commands but the ones that stand out are:

Cooper spins on command and back up, plus wait for my hand command before he eats, that one is really good for him because he is only 7 months old and pee on command. His favourite and he really does well at this, is seeking something out when I have hidden it. Finds it every time even up a tree, a smart boy for only 7 months I think

Bodhi knows to ring the bell when wanting to go out, pee on command, fetch the paper, carry shopping bags and the seeking out things even when buried in the dirt or under the water. The peeing on command is the funniest because if he doesn't want to go before bed he will hide in the shadows and freeze thinking I can't see him. When I tell him again he will give this big sigh and go as if to say "whatever". Funny doggies.

If you are looking for a sign .... THIS IS IT!

This is such a great thread. I have to teach Daisy a new trick every week for her puppy agility class so I've gotten lots of good ideas. So far she knows:
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Get in your bed
  • Get in your crate
  • Back - walk backwards
  • Crawl
  • Touch what I point at with her nose
  • Touch your ball (with nose)
  • Touch your shoe (plastic toy shoe)
  • Dry off - when she is wet from the pool she knows when we say dry off to jump up on the lounge chair and get toweled off.
  • Get the kitty - a favorite so she can harass our cat
  • Off
  • Leave it
  • Heel - not perfect with distractions
This is not nearly as much as some of the Wonder Dogs here and my only excuse is my own laziness. She loves to learn and learns very quickly.

I went with Brooks to the dog park the other day, saw him squat, headed to where he had been and could not find it. I walked up and down, back and forth and never found it (I hate when people don't pick up after their dogs at the dog park so I really really wanted to find it....but never did).
So, that would definitely be a good trick to teach
