    Default Useful Tricks/Commands?

    I just wanted to get some feedback on what others use everyday.

    The main commands I use are fairly obvious:

    Come, Sit, Down, On your bed, Leave it & Off you go.. I rarely use stay but he does know it.

    Would there be any other real benifical commands to use in everyday life?

    Not really but having said that it honestly pertains to each individual dog/owner/situation.
    We ensure that Sit,Drop,Stay are well ingrained here. We also use a No command that is straight across the board and our dogs know it means whatever we're doing we'd better stop it and get to our spots ( our spots in this instance given the dogs we have here at the moment is the lounge room,on the lounge or the single seater of the sofa and one knows it means his bed.

    Off, down, leave, sit, no, up are ones we use almost every day.

    I would stress the benefit of reliable recall. Still failing at that myself.

    Default come

    Most important command that should be ever taught is come.A dog that doesnt come to you isnt trained in my opinion.Apart from that sit drop stand leave it.... and my fav one for him is pull cause he likes grabbing other dogs by the lead and taking them for walks lol or i give him his lead in his mouth tell him to pull and he drags me along the ground

    Default stay?

    We never use stay ... if ive told him to sit why tell him to stay?

    I use sit, drop, comeon, wait here with Peg, although at times she's a little slow she's gradually getting there, started introducing a click as well to back up the comeon and is so far looking really good.

    Remote drop or remote sit & stay are handy, we used this a lot on a dog that had no bike track sense, so the bikes could safely get around her if she happened to be on or near the track - otherwise she'd turn just as they got up to her and there would be a crash.

    It can also be handy if you want your dog to seem less threatening to another dog or person that is near your dog or approaching your dog.

    I also have a repetoire of basic tricks for kiddy entertainment value.
    shake hands, other hand, roll over, "what you say", "tail worky", licky fingers, licky toes etc.

    "what you say" is good for shutting her up when she's barking

    And there is a command for go to the toilet too, which is also useful.

    And given her recall at home can be dodgy, I also have "shutting the door now" and "in or out" ie if she doesn't come right inside now, she's going to be shut outside for a while. I don't have a dog door.

    So 'what you say' is to stop them from barking?

    We have a command for toilet 'go wee wee' which he knows very well

    Would having a command for barking adn not barking be useful?
