    Default What Commands Have You Taught Your Dog(s)?

    I myself have taught Bella the basics and a few others.
    Sit, Drop, come, outside (move away from me),go to bed, heel, finishing exercise(go to heel from a stay, around me), stay, sit stay, stand stay, Watch.
    ive also been working on some tricks:
    beg, Up(stand on two legs), spin, dance (up and spin), twirl, jump, On (the couch/chairs/etc), Off (etc etc), jump through my arms, Mush (walk faster), Back (move back), gimme a hug ( she wraps her front paws around my legs) and wait. She can do most of these on a table aswell.

    What commands have you taught your dogs?

    bishi/sit, stay, down, pasto/move,enough/narko,salaam (gives one paw then the other ontop to shake hands) mama/food, bed and go get it...

    thats about it, I can't hope to achieve any more till he grows up out of puppy stage i think, Leo isn't the smartest little guy so Im not expecting him to be preforming miracles lol. I'll be happy when I have reliable recall

    Commands;

    SIT; STAY; BEG; LIE DOWN - On command/Straight away (Although on Beg, I like to use a hand signal as well)

    GO AROUND (Haven't done it in awhile - needs refreshing); COME; ROLLOVER - Tricks that are not 100% reliable (COME) & working on now (ROLLOVER, about 60% of the time)

    Um, things that have turned into commands;;
    "OFF" (off the couch/bed)
    "Go to bed" (She'll run off to her crate - very cute )

    The pup's two reliable commands are Sit and Stay. Both of these he does excellently.

    Less reliable is Down, although I have seen vast improvement with this in terms of not needing either a treat or my hand flat on the ground in the past week - I think it's finally clicked for him. I've also been using it a lot more in play (as in he must lie down before recommencing play) which I think is exercising it for him. Also less reliable are Roll and Leave It. Leave It has also been improving since I started using it instead of "Stay" when he's waiting for his food. He knows not to touch the bowl if he wants his food, regardless of command, so hopefully the meaning will transfer quickly.

    Least reliable is Come. He'll do it 100% of the time if it's because I'm calling him out of a Stay. Otherwise, he has an "eh, I might meander over in a tic" attitude.

    I've hit a blank in terms of what to teach him (except Shake, which I can't work out how to teach) so have just been working on a Down from standing position (and hopefully vice versa) with an aim to eventually get to a command for Stand.

    Batty is learning Beg, Walk Back and Come to a Whistle, knows Roll (Roll over), Shake/High 5, Drop, Sit, Speak & Quiet, Wait at the Door, Target/Touch and Cuddles and Kisses . He's self teaching for open cupboards and drawers... I had to wash all of my towels and linens two days ago because he dragged them out into the dirt!

    The dog I own that lives with my father knows: Lights (Turn on/off the lights), Fetches the phone when it's ringing (House phone or standard ring ring tone), Sit, Come, Stay, Drop, Roll, Beg, Dance (Spin in a circle on his hind legs - rarely practiced), Quiet (I never taught him to speak though), Leg Weaves, Walk Back, Target, Fetch specific objects (Fetch Ball, Fetch Bone, Fetch Paper, Fetch Slipper etc), Take A Bow, Jump through a hoop, Spin (Both directions and at both sides) and go around any object. He's also learning Pass it to Me (if anything is dropped on the ground he will pick it up and give it to the person who has dropped it). He's a 6 year old (approx) rescue ACDx. He also herds cattle.

    He came to me just shy of a year old with severe fear aggression issues. He is now 6 years old and has been living with my dad for the last 2 years. His training is still going, while he does those fairly reliably, he needs the practice at them at the very least weekly or he gets lazy, he does best when he has to run through them on a daily basis. That can take up to two hours a day. My point is it takes a tonne of time and dedication to get a dog doing those things. Because he helps dad around the house a bit and he works on the farm he gets a lot of practice.

    Batty is now 5 months old, he's been being trained since his 2nd week here. He gets 4 to 6 sessions a day/night. he has an attitude of "What's in it for me and why should I bother when that smell is better" where the ACD has a "Ooh! Work, what can I do, there, no wait, there that's better, what's next? Ooh I can do that, oh that isn't right, ok, hows this" attitude, which is far easier to work with.

    Some of the tricks are here: http://www.dogforum.com.au/dog-train...g-do-home.html

    I keep meaning to update the thread but haven't found the time to yet. At the moment I don't have the time to retype those ones, so I'm being lazy and linking you to where I've posted before
