I would reinforce all of those until they can do them in different places, settings, with hand cues, without hand cues, just words, etc.

I would also work on a crate/kennel up command unless that is your place command.

And that is great work!! Amazing for 15 weeks old.

First off, nice job with the training you are doing great!

Here are some fun ones:

1) Watch Me
2) Roll Over
3) Spin
4) Skateboarding? (Not really a command but I always think it would be fun to do).
5) Fetch

I am no dog trainer, but those are some fun things that I always think of wanting to teach my dog when I get him/her.

Oh I forgot to add watch me, she has that one. We haven't done roll over or spin yet, and we're "kind of" working on fetch. I live in the country so no sidewalks so skateboard would be hard to teach, no hard surfaces to roll on.

Wow what a smart pup! Well you could try skateboarding inside if you wanted. You can try working on fetch, roll over, and spin in the meanwhile. I suggest that you get the app Puppr (I don't have it), but I see very good reviews for it so it would be great for your puppy! 😁

I do have a small bit of uncarpeted floor in the kitchen I could try on.

I like to teach my dogs a hand-touch. It can come in handy when you are trying to position your dog without touching them (I do Rally and agility and it's a useful core skill for both). You may also want to Google "cooperative care." This is teaching skills (like a chin rest or laying on their side) which will simplify grooming and vet care.

Good ideas

Great foundations! Good puppy. You could also work on:

Others have mentioned Touch and I am a big advocate of that also
Drop it
Kennel up
Find it
Potty on command (I use "hurry up")
On by (keep walking and ignore the other dog/distractions)

"Mine" is our Drop it, potty on command is "better hurry" for us. She knows "kennel" but Find it and On by are good ones.

Puppy sounds like she is doing great! Maybe swimming / intro to water, and retrieves on land and water if you haven't done those yet?

Water is ice here right now, and the indoor dog swim place isn't open due to covid. I am anxious to get her into water asap though!

Ah that is tough. We’re doing the bathtub for now, till we can get into a doggy pool.
