    Default What tricks does your dog know?

    Sorry if there is already a thread about this, but i had a look and i couldn't find one and i was curious as to what tricks people had taught their dogs.
    here's what my dogs know

    Dodge:
    sit
    drop
    shake
    speak (woof)
    wait

    Koda:
    sit
    drop
    shake
    Bang
    spin
    wait
    through (leg weaving)
    peek (runs up to me from behind and peeks through my legs)
    weave poles
    over
    up
    jump
    tunnel
    stick em up (work in progress)

    as you probably guessed... Koda enjoys training more than Dodge does. Dodge just loves to work rather than do tricks

    Yes, there is another thread. It was started about 10 months ago for memory. It must have disappeared into the internet limbo

    I have taught a few now. They are not all proofed but he performs them.

    Luke:
    - sit
    - drop
    - shake
    - high five
    - gimme ten
    - wave
    - bang
    - roll over
    - spin
    - stand (from sit or drop)
    - bark
    - legs (walks around behind me and pops his head and shoulders between my legs and looks up)
    - up *tap my chest* (hug around waist or shoulders depending on my height at the time)
    - up up (run up something, like a slide)
    - in your crate (to go to crate)
    - over
    - tunnel
    - go pose (puts both paws on a chair and puts his head on his paws with a cute face)
    - open it (push open baby gate when unlocked, to get through)
    - back up (moves backwards)
    - bow (not oerfect)
    - crawl
    - paws (puts his paws on my outstretched arm)
    - "pick it up" & "bring it here" (he does this with dead animals at the park but it's better than rolling in or eating it)
    - in the bath (jumps in the bath for his bath. this definitely helped with his fear of baths)


    More complex:
    - close it (dishwasher)
    - turn down (pulls down the blanket like a turn down service)
    - hop in (stepping all fours into a washing basket - wanted to see what he'd do using shaping)
    - rubbish (picks up rubbish and puts it in a bin)
    - in the wash (picks up my partners dirty socks and put them in his own small washing bucket)
    - I guess walking on the treadmill is a skill/trick

    No command, but have taught him to walk on rungs like ladders or children's play equipment with metal bars/rings with gaps between.
    A semi trained behaviour: "psss" (at the cat) = Luke goes and tells her off (usually she's scratching something, like his soft crate or the couch). No harm done to the cat, of course. he just gives her a boss grip around her head or scruff and she rolls over and stops.

    I can't think of anything else right now, but I'll edit it later if I remember any more. I love trick training. It creates such a bond between the dog and owner because its all light-hearted fun

    Wow, luke knows some awesome tricks!
    and you're very right! it creates such a wonderful bond between dog and owner!
    What i call "peek" is the same as what you call "legs", i think you described it a bit better than i did though lol
    One day i'd love to get into dog dancing but Dodge wouldn't enjoy it and Koda is too uncoordinated

    Haha. I love the idea of doggy dancing but I think you would need to put in a lot of hours.

    Not many so far, but Brock's only 20 weeks old so i reckon he's doing ok so far(so about 10 weeks of training).

    Sit
    Drop
    Play dead(roll onto his back)
    Shake hands
    Turn right(turn left will come when he no longer needs a hand signal to perform turn right)
    Stay(i can actually leave the room for about 30 seconds now and he doesn't move)
    On your bed

    Not all 100% reliable yet but only need hand signals for play dead(not always) and turn right

    ETA : and the hardest "trick" so far, recall - great at home, improving at the park

    We got Charlie about a month ago and Mollie around two days ago.
    Charlie:
    Sit
    Shake
    Down
    Play dead(you say bang! and point at him and he rolls on his back)
    Come
    Stay
    Fetch

    Mollie:
    Sit
    Down
    Shake

    I didn't even need to train Mollie to shake. She just copied Charlie at the beginning and we just reinforced it and added a command :D That is why I like having two dogs. I really wanted to teach Charlie to bark but so far I've heard nothing from him :/. But we can't get Mollie to shut up and she goes off after everything! (like the noisy neighbour's dog), even the sticks she conjures up out of nowhere!

    Sit,
    Stay,
    Come here,
    Leave,
    Follow me,
    Stay close,
    Lie down,
    Roll over,
    High five,
    Get in the bag,
    Go Gettem,
    Shhhh quiet,
    Nice cuddles,
    Fetch,
    Dig it,
    Go away,
    Beg

    She's also figured out how to say "no no no no" so you can ask her a question to which she'll always reply in the negative, sounds kind of like this: talking funny cat says no no no - YouTube

    What tricks does your dog know? Well my dogs trick me into getting up from the lounge so they can go outside and dig holes and pull the grass out. My Rottie tricks me into thinking I didn't give her a treatie so she gets another one, something she learnt from my GSD boy.

    My GSD girl Tara (RIP) used to jump up and push the backdoor handle down open the door and run out, just from watching me.
