Duke, my 2yr old black Lab, is pretty smart. Dh calls him the Sheldon Cooper of dogs! LOL! We are trying to still train him and keep him busy.
He sits, he stays, he goes in his kennel when someone comes to the door,
he knows down and drops the tennis ball and retrieves it really well.
Tonight we taught him how to get his toys out of a basket. Dh wants to teach him to put stuff back in the basket! That one might take a little longer! He gets too excited when he sees a treat.

I wish I knew how to post a video. Dh took a short video of him trying to get his Kong out of a laundry basket!It took him about a minute and half!

Oh yea he does high five too and shakes.

One sits, stays, shakes, high fives, down, sits by her dog door as I fix her food, sits up on her hind legs, and sits on the same part of the porch when we walk people out of our house. The other one just learned to sit and walk on his hind legs like a circus dog.

A few! Although he's so stubborn that he will randomly refuse to do them without the proper motivation.

He knows sit and stay. He knows speak (not just hearing it but a silent hand gesture -- I was trying to get him a role in a stage play!!!). He will get a toy from his basket when he hears, "Where's your toy?" He knows "drop it" and " not yours" when he's got something he shouldn't.

He can shake a paw. And he tips his head from side to side if you say, "Are you listening?"

One Other funny thing ... if he hears the sound (music) from my computer that I'm logging off, he jumps up and leaves the office!

Duke does this. Lately his thing is socks. Especially if we're ignoring him. He hates to be ignored. He doesn't chew them or eat them he'll just bring them to us. He does look for his kong. That's his favorite. We've tried lots of toys but he goes back to the kong! We put treats, icecubes and peanut butter in it!

She doesn't do "tricks" so much as she recognizes a lot of words. I can tell her to get one of about 20 toys and she'll come back with the correct one. We would talk about a biscuit, she'd get excited, so we started spelling it, and now she recognizes that, too. She knows our daily routine really well and is ready to do things before we are sometimes!

My lab has stuffed animals she carries around that we keep in a basket. Since DD called her stuffed toys "guys" when she was little, Cleo knows "where's you guy?" and "go get a guy!". No luck on getting her to put them all back in the basket though, lol.

Best trick is "get the bug!". She doesn't see real well anymore, but she gets so excited running around trying to find it, she will usually squish it. She will eat spiders, then run to the fridge for cheese.

She is kind of a moron outside of get the bug though, lol.

he sheds pretty good, does that count?

he actually learned SIT a few weeks ago, DD taught him.

He doesn't pee in the house, walks (& runs) on the leash pretty good; still jumps up but not to the point where it's annoying, he's just glad to see us!

He doesn't need to do any tricks, we just love having him around

roll over afterward
i think that's about it

i think it is time to teach her some more. : )

Ours knows a few. The basics like sit, down, stay, etc. She can wave, high five, sit pretty, take a bow, spin both directions, roll over. If we tell her to find something, she will usually find it (like a toy, a biscuit, one of the cats, etc). When I am taking something like a pumpkin out to the chickens, she will carry it to the coop for me.
She also will not eat her food or any treats without being told OK (unless we throw them to her, and then she catches and eats them). We used to tell her to wait but we don't have to anymore. She also knows "leave it" because she gets quite a bit of practice with that one.

I'm trying to teach her shame but I put that on hold in favor of teaching her to let me brush her teeth.

Ours do a few tricks, but what the stuff I really like is the stuff they teach themselves. When they know your moves.

Rusty watches me get ready for work. I do my last move (smooth my hair with mousse), he gets up, runs out to the living room and gets in his crate.

I love when they reeeeeally want something and start offering up every trick they know to make you give it up. Hehe... so cute.

"Are you hungry?" (Runs to the kitchen)
"Do you want to go to bed?" (Runs to the bedroom)
"Can I have a kiss?" (Gives ya a nice lick! Lol)

Bentley does some things. He has been to dog school through off-leash training so he's a good listener. He can heel, turn, sit-stay, settle, wait, down, all the basic obedience.

His tricks are bow, turn around, other way (which is turn around counter-clockwise), high five, through (as in through your legs or an obstacle), shake, high five, around (orbit around you). And he can do all of them with verbal and/or hand signals. We are working on roll over but he doesn't like to do it so it's been slow going.

All three of them can sit, down, stay. The samoyeds can give paw (shake), sit up and talk (woo woo). The puppy can recall (come to the front when called), heel and get in her crate when we say crate. She can also get her toy or ball. She can catch the ball in her mouth when thrown up in the air.

All of them race when they hear biscuit or see us head for near the biscuit jar. We have to spell walk and park or they block the door, bark and dance

As well as the standard commands that he needs to be a good doggy citizen he knows "shakey shakey" - which is not a paw shake it is shaking himself before he comes indoors in wet weather (he taught himself that by copying the wirehaired dog I had who needed to shake the water off.)

He knows "Clean your face" means go wipe your drool on your own bed not my couch!

And another self taught - if he isn't getting his own way he will lower his head and wrap a paw over his nose ... so cute it makes me laugh but it doesn't work

And finally if he thinks he needs more attention than the computer he comes and pushes his nose under my mousing hand and flips it up

Oz knows his basics. Tricks are:
High five (ht my hand with paw)
All ten (both hands together with both paws)
Respect (ex taught him this.. He stands and puts paw against a closed fist, like a fist bump)
'slip me some skin' (ex's doing - that's a "low five)
Twirl (turn around anti clockwise)
Spin (turn clockwise)

Other commands he knows:
'road' he sits and looks left and right at a kerb before he's told to cross
Left paw/right paw
Turn left/turn right
' where's your toy?'
Bed time
Lamp post! (used when I go one way round a pole he goes the other and lead round the pole. ' I say ' lamp post! And he retraces his steps back to the same side )

Favourite story with that command: there was scaffolding up a few houses down. As we walked by he lifted his leg to pee. I said "no! Not a lamppost" and took him to an appropriate spot. As we walked back he went to the other side of it, so of course, I said, " lamppost! "To bring him to the right side ... He looked at me as if to say, "oh really?" peed on it then ran back round. If he could have smirked he would.


shakey shakey
I forget that one! I sing "shake shake shake! shake shake shake! Shake ozzi's bootay!" for him to shake off after a bath or being out in rain. Also "dry your paws" which he does on a towel at the door when he comes in.

Otis, our Boston terrier, can open the blinds on the window.

He loves to lay on the arm of the couch & look out the open window. If the blinds are closed, he cries for us to open them a little, so he can look out.

One morning, I was pulling the string to open them for him. He couldn't wait, so he jumped up in the air, grabbed the string with his teeth & ran back on the couch until the blinds flew all the way to the top. He thinks it's quite fun now & I have to keep the strings short, so he can't reach them. It's quite the party trick for friends when they come over too.

He can also sit, stay, I tell him to swim & he does the army crawl, I tell him to go to bed & he gets in his crate & he knows our schedule & is ready to do things before we get there.

Our other Boston terrier is the sweetest guy around & he just knows how to sit in your lap, hug & love you.

My baby girl knows sit and shake. She also knows when I put my laptop down it might just be time for a "W". We don't say the word walk until we are ready to go for a walk. If she hears the W word she gets SO excited.

My dog is a rescue from Afghanistan and while she knows all her sits, stays (most of the time, lol) and so on... she has two talents that we adore. She is very talkative... so when someone comes in and we say "four on the floor" (meaning no jumping on the guest) she starts to talk, not quite a howl, just talking... until you have to pay attention to her. She also gives hugs. If you kneel in front of her and say hug, she gently puts her paws on your shoulder and leans in for a big hug. So darn cute.

My border collie can "high five," shake, sit, down, roll, stay, go around (sounds like someone's lamp post), leave it, get your leash, and he knows not to lick me as I don't like it -it kills him as he loves to give kisses. He does sneak up towards my face when we're snuggling to sneak in a kiss sometimes. If he's hungry, he will come to me and bark. When I ask what he wants, go goes to his bowl, touches it with his nose, touches the food tub with his nose, then touches his bowl and sits.

He had to go to the vet last week because the dog next door got into our fence and attacked him. The vet and assistant had a terrible time holding him down to treat his bites. After they removed the muzzle, he licked each of their hands as if to say he didn't mean to fight them. So sweet.

Sit and wait for permission to go out the front door or cross the street
They stand in front of their bowls until I say "eat"

Carly, my 2.5 year old chocolate lab is by far the smartest dog I know. She simply astounds me in her understanding of the english language, her sense of humour, her kindness and gentle spirit. I that dog.

I wish I had of started her in dog agility classes. She LOVES to run. She LOVES to meet other dogs. She LOVES to participate in things. She does all the usual stuff, but I am more concerned with obedience for safety than tricks.

As a joke, I made a list of all the words and phrases she understands and it's well beyond 50. That floored me.

That said, I am determined to capture her "wait ... what? Who? Me?" look on camera and post that photo on dog-shaming.com.

WHen I say "look at me" my dog always looks at me. My daughter told me that was the tone of my voice, so we tried it with a lot of different things "Lady is mine" and stuff like that, that sounded close, but wasn't it. Nothing. Only when I said "Look at me" does he do that.

Also if I ask him "Who loves his mama?" he gives me a happy bark. Happy because he knows when I say that he is going to get a treat, so maybe that's a little cheating!!

My Jack Russell is way too lazy to do tricks. She is a comedian though and can lift her eyebrows up like Groucho Marx.

I had a Pitbull that was super smart. Besides the basic sit/stay/down/etc commands she would bark on a hand signal, if someone screamed she was taught to lay down with her head on the ground, and could balance a ball or treat on her nose then toss and catch it. She was a fantastic dog.

"shakey shakey" - which is not a paw shake it is shaking himself before he comes indoors in wet weather (he taught himself that by copying the wirehaired dog I had who needed to shake the water off.)


I perhaps should give you the full picture here - I didn't sing to get the dog to "shakey shakey" but I have been known to stand on the doorstep miming what I wanted the young dog to copy ... fortunately he had learned it by spring so I was able to complete this training discreetly under cover of darkness during our winter walks!

Not saying you have to be mad to own a dog ... but I think it does sometimes help?

Sit, shake, lay dodwn, and high five are the ones my girls know.

One of them has a furry little toy that looks like a tree stump with a bunch of little stuffed squirrels she has to fish out of it. DH trained her to "Go get your b*tches!"... She runs around and finds all her squirrels. Totally inappropriate, but SO funny!

Not my dog, who is dumber than a box of rocks. But I am in WV visiting family and my DGD has a dog you can set food on the nose of and she will sit quietly until told she can have it. Then she flips her head, the food flies into the air and she catches it.

He sits, stays, barks on command, searches, bites on command, releases bite on command, searches for people/articles/drugs, can jump fences, protects my dh ... police K9.

Our retired K9 was from the Czech republic, so his commands were in Czech. It seemed like when I finally learned his commands my dh got his second partner. Our current K9 is a Dutch Shepard, so now I'm learning the Dutch commands. I still get them mixed up. Our dog just stares at me like "what?"

No, but one cat plays fetch and will drop the ball at your feet. Three of them will stand up like circus bears for little treats. I'm trying to teach one of them to tap on the dixie cup that covers the treat (kind of like a shell game).

Teaching a dog to put toys in a basket is absolutely do-able. My sister used to have a schnauzer that knew the names of her toys and would put them back in the toy box when told to do so.
She used the command "put away" so "put away cactus" would send the dog off in a search for the rubber cactus toy, then she would drop it in the toy box.

My 2 year old rescue Lab Hazel Can......

Sit
Wait
High Five
Down
Bang-Play dead
Up
Get Him
Get your ball
Goes NIght NIght in her crate
Goes into her crate when I say "Gotta Go"
She catches treats out of the air
Drop it


She barks when she wants to go outside

She can open all of our house doors from the outside
and inside-turns the knobs, pushes down the lever handle

She TALKS all the time-
she is really bossy and demands attention when she wants

AND BEST OF ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She SMILES....and yes that is her and a REAL smile....

These are awesome!! Duke will be very busy! HA HA!

So far he is catching on to get them out of the basket he did it tonight on the first try. He just won't put it back in!


I love when they reeeeeally want something and start offering up every trick they know to make you give it up. Hehe... so cute.


ha ha at this! totally! Duke sits and shakes when we're trying to learn something new and I don't even give him the command but if I have a treat in my hand he'd do all five!

PrettyPeas Your lab looks a lot like mine!
Here's Duke!

My Am Staff learned shake and we were so proud he's always trying to get us to shake with him. He's pretty smart and catches on to stuff quickly. Our boxer, on the other hand, isn't interested in doing any tricks. We've had her since she was 6 weeks old and weighed 3 pounds and have completely spoiled her. She really believes she's a princess.

Our Rat Terrior can do many tricks, but my favorite is that he sneezes on command if you touch your finger to the tip of your nose. It's a crowd pleaser.

Yuki is 3 months old, and she knows- sit, down, stay, shake, sit pretty, and we've almost got "roll over" down. Whenever someone goes outside, she jumps up on the door, grabs the doorknob with her paws, and tries turning it. Someday she might actually get it! That might be scary, though, because she's already figured out how to escape our yard. She also opens the door to her "puppy palace" when it isn't latched.
Her best trick is being cute.

She barks when she wants to go outside


We have bells on the door and my dog rings them when she wants to go out.
