    Hi Kat,

    Good job with your dog. You have done very well to teach all those tricks so far.

    My boy closes the dishwasher on command. I've seen a jack russel do this too, so it should be fine for your little one.
    Go fetch his lead. You did say he doesn't like putting things in his mouth, so perhaps this would be a great challenge for you. Shaping is a great way to do this. If you are not sure what shaping is and would like some more information, we will be happy to assist.
    Luke can shake and high five like your little one, and yes they are different one is extended paw, the other is floppy paw. Another paw one you can teach is wave. This can be done by asking to high five but not have your hand close enough to touch. He should attempt to highfive twice in a row before putting his paw down to create the wave. You reward this. You can start by rewarding the one wave and increase the paw waves to get a proper wave
    You could also teach him to walk backwards.
    You could teach him to ride a skateboard....if you're into that kinda thing
    Play dead is a good one. It definitely comes in handy when my boy is getting too excited at the park. "bang", he's dead. You can't bark or carry on when you're dead
    Putting rubbish in the bin...though, for a small dog, you'll need a small bin.

    I'm sure there are a lot more if we put our minds to it.

    You always teach him doggy dancing...this one is a champion. R.I.P. Rookiiieeeee!!!!!!!!! xx

    How to roll a large (for your dogs size) log around an obstacle course and bring it to me. Needs to be large enough dog cannot fit it in his mouth to carry, it must be rolled. Huge puzzle for dog to solve.
    this takes Bernie about 30 mins to complete, and judging by the sound of his screaming, he's LOVIN every minute of it.

    There are so so many cool tricks you can use. How have you been teaching him - I hope using positive rewards and shaping him. Riding a scateboard is always cool. Doing handstands is fun. Saying prayers and going to bed.
    Suggest you google "DOG TRICKS" and I am certain you will get some huge ideas to work on.

    Good luck. Look forward to seeing you on Australia's Got Talent".

    Default britain's got talent won by dancing dog...

    Ashleigh and Pudsey - Britain's Got Talent 2012 Final - UK version - YouTube

    So, there's
    jump over you
    jump on you
    walk backwards while you walk forwards
    walk backwards while you walk backwards
    leg weaves
    get on my shoes
    walk on my back feet and spin
    arm weaves
    and look guilty when mum farts.

    For even more tricks - there's list to pick and choose from

    Hand targetting (your dog touches his nose to your hand) is very easy and then very useful to get all manner of new tricks going.
