Sounds like you have a lot of your bases covered!  We taught our dogs shake and then switch, where they switch paws.  I think if we spent more time we could alternate those and turn it into a march that would be pretty cute.

Oh and also our dog knows if we say “find your treat” that we have hidden a treat somewhere in the room.  And if I ask him “where’s daddy” he goes and finds Fiance.  The other dog . . .well she’s pretty dumb, god love her.

Everytime I go on vacation my brother watches my dog and everytime I come back he has learnt a new trick,…..

Fiance loves this one and kills him all the time. If you shoot him with a hand “gun” he will limp and fall down, if you shoot again he will die….how long he stays dead varies but if he looks up and you still have your “gun” pointed at him he wont move until its gone.

This one is my fav…he will swipe his face with his paw and cover his eyes and look ashamed if you put your hands to your face and say oh no!….it is possibly the most addorable thing ever.

Don’t forget about heel (getting her to walk in line with you, not ahead or behind) and finish (when she is sitting in front of you, then moves around your right side, behind you, and finishes sitting on your left hand side). Those are a couple classics that my dog learned in training.

I also taught my dog to smile using bananas (he LOVES bananas)

This is what he does when you say “smile” lol:


(sorry for the huge pic!)

So cute! Love this topic!

My pup is pretty smart too… or I’m a just a proud momma!

She knows: Sit, Stay, Come, Drop it, Leave it, Lie down, Roll over, Bow (puts her front legs down and bows her head), Shake, Beg, pee like a boy (lol! she raises her back leg like when boy dogs go pee… but she doesn’t pee, obvs.), up (to jump up), off (to jump down), go to bed, zombie (stand up on her hind legs – her harms flail in front of her so she kind of looks like a zombie walking), aaand, I think that’s it!

We haven’t taught her any new tricks in a while. But she is SO motivated by treats, when she knows you have one she starts cycling through all her tricks like a madwoman. So funny!

we’ve also taught our dog:

Turn – a quick u-turn when we’re outside to avoid other dogs (she’s leash aggressive)

Watch – sit and look us in the eyes

Cross – cross the street

She also knows the difference between ‘time for bed’ which is what I say when I take her to bed with me and ‘go to bed’ which is what Fiance says when he comes to bed and she has to sleep on her bed.

We’re in the process of teaching her ‘belly rub’ too. She loves getting her belly rubbed and we’re trying to get her to flop on her back on command. It’s ADORABLE!

@Mrs Hedgehog: how did you teach high five? This is one of the ones on my list… I also want to teach her to pick up her toys, and to find specific toys from her basket. But that’s kind of ambitious. Actually, she also knows “get your toy” – she’ll go get a random toy and bring it to you.

@Great Gatsby: we’re working on heel too. Slowly but surely! She does know to turn left though when we tell her.

(And my dog smiles too… haha!)

@Mrs Hedgehog: I started by putting a small piece of banana close to his face until his lip curled up into a bit of a smile. Then said “good smile!” and gave him the banana. Positive reinforcement until the smile got bigger and bigger!

@Dutchie: I also MUST know how your dog learned the ashamed face!!!

@Mrs Hedgehog: my brother makes me look like a dog whisperer, he has also taugh him to high five. he will jump to touch your hand with his nose. He can spin in both directions, balance his treats on his nose, wipe his bum, this one weirds me out (have any of your dogs ever ben itchy and dragged themselves  using only their front legs?) Its endless and big brother always gives me flack for not practicing with him enough, because he is going to forget. He also has his own dog that can pretty much do anything, hes had a number of dogs throughout his lifetime and all of them worship the ground he walks on, including mine.

I will ask him next time he is over for dinner.
