I'll have to write them out.. never counted them before! Daisy knows how to sit, stay, lay down, roll over, shake, high five, drop it, leave it, and bring me your ball. She also knows when we ask her if she wants to go on a walk because she'll get real excited and jump up and down like a kid. The only thing we're still having trouble with is, CALM DOWN! She's a smart one though! LOL To answer your question, that would make 9 or 10.

Lets see...

Woody knows how to make me take him for a walk...

Give him a treat...

Scratch his chest...

Let him out...

Let him in...

Play fetch with him...

Pet him in just the right spot...

Feed him....

Yeah...he's just full of tricks

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.

Bentley knows:
sit, down, stand, settle, roll over, shake, wave, leave it, fetch, find it, cross paws, pray, touch, close door, stay (shaky on this so we'll count it as 1/2)
So that's 14 1/2 but it's really 15 1/2 because his favorite trick is holding up his paw to make daddy feel guilty and give him a cookie, that counts, right?! LOL

Your Bentley knows a lot of cute tricks! I especially like wave and pray! My Bentley knows sit, stay, come, lay down, leave it, drop it, off (sometimes), I think that's it. I will have to work on some cute tricks soon!

I taught Bentley shake first then wave was super easy, in fact I think that was the easiest trick so far.

EDIT: To be fair, you all have lives...I'm retired so my dogs have my full attention 24/7, whether they like it or not

i dont generally teach party games (tricks) I consider all training to be tricks to the dogs ... but i took a class with cuinn (fcr) years ago and we had to shape a trick so I taught him to raise his paw when I said who wants a _______ whatever... so its great now... I get all 9 dogs in a sit stay and i have a treat and I saw "Who wants this cookie" and up shoots Cuinns paw....

Jasper knows sit, stay (not 100%), leave (not 100%) and off (not 100%)
He doesnt seem to have the knack for learning things like that, he's a little bit stupid but i love him!

Tricks or cues?

Basic stuff:
Sit
Down
Stand
Heel left and right
Stay (in sit, down or stand - out of sight)
Go to your bed (i.e. put your butt on your bed)
Bedtime (go downstairs)
Up
Off
Get in (the kennel, the car, etc)
Over
Come
Here
Wait
This way (when he's off leash and he wants to go one way)
and he'll lay down on a whistle cue, too.

Advanced:
Get your leash (i.e. find leash and bring it to me)
Get your collar (same as above but his leather collar with tags)
Get my shoes (find my shoes)
Other shoe (when he gets me the wrong one)
Doesn't have a 'cue' but when i hold his collar, he puts his head through it
'be nice". Usually used when I have a new foster puppy, just a reminder to be gentle
Gentle.
Supper. He runs to his eating spot in the backyard.
Out of the kitchen. self-explanatory.
Touch. He'll touch his nose to anywhere I'm pointing. I'm trying to get him to "touch" the crosswalk button so i don't have to. So far a combination of "up" and "touch" seems to be working.
And he'll close doors and cupboards behind him, without needing a cue. He's gotten stuck in bathrooms and downstairs a few times

Tricks:
Roll over
Bang you're dead #1 (he immediately drops to the ground and rolls onto his back)
Bang you're dead #2 (he dies a 'hero's death' where he flops around and staggers a bit before rolling onto his back)
Get me a beer
"Bring me"_____: the paper, a binder, a pen, my book. I can usually guide him with verbal cues if he doesn't know the word for the item.
"Take it to______": insert person's name and he'll take it to a family member
"Bring it______": insert location (downstairs, outside, kitchen, and he'll go there). He brought my purse, my textbooks, and my binders down to the basement today. Saved me a few trips!
"Where's Blue?" will get ranger running to the front door because he thinks blue is coming up the walk way. If blue isn't there, he runs around the house trying to find him.

and he knows the names of most of his toys, so will bring me them when i ask for them by name. I think it's obvious from this post that 1) I have too much time on my hands and 2) we have bad weather and are stuck inside a lot!

"I just wanna laugh and love...I just wanna live it up!"
