    Default Complex Dog Trick

    Hi all,
    I'm interested in knowing what the best or what your favourite complex dog trick you have ever seen is and why?

    I love the dog weaves in agility.

    I just like all the agility stuff. Though I guess is it really still a trick?

    I like the "geddit" cattle dog that goes forwards and backwards towards his toy until he's allowed to "geddit" and someone else trained their dog to fetch different drinks from the fridge. All the therapy/guide dog stuff is really cool. As is the search and rescue.

    For search and rescue, I read somewhere that there is an advantage to training a signal for "I searched and didn't find anything" as well as a different signal for "I searched and found something", I also read somewhere that one dog made it's own combo signal (can't remember exactly but something like) for I found someone dead (lie down) and I found someone alive (barking) - ie had found two people.

    My dog has taught me a neat trick, does that count?
    When his water is empty, he brings me the hose pipe end as a cue for me to fill the bucket once more.

    As you can see, im not so much as training Bernie, he's training me.

    My boys do not do anything complex. Like Bernie said...my Chookie Not yet cookie disappeared into our bathtub when thirsty (as i do not have water supply inside house) wait there quietly until i find him. You may think it is nothing special, but think again for a little dog (his body is longer compared to his legs) jumping into the older style free standing bathtub....it needs some courage!!!!
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Serious answer, someone has posted a video of dog tricks a few lines up from your post. check that out, plenty of neat tricks there. Clicker training rules ok again.
