What tricks do your doggies know?

Sam (2years) knows 'sit', 'down', 'drop it', 'come here', 'wave', 'bark', 'roll over', 'to your crate', 'ignore it', 'get down', 'get up', 'shut up' and knows how to give his paw, but he's trained in french, so it's a bit hard to translate :) Hope it's clear!

Gini (6 months) only knows 'sit', 'get down/up', 'come here' and 'in your crate'

Curious to hear from you guys!!

Ruby (2 yo) knows "come", "sit", "down" (these three she can do without seeing me when I call from another room), "leave it", "get up", "roll over", "give paw (in russian)", "crawl", "go to sleep (she gets off our bed and goes to her own bed, works only at night :) )", "eat", "where is mommy/daddy? (her response is to give kisses)" and "give me kisses", "bring me the ball" and more specifically, "right here (pointing at your feet). When playing fetch she also obeys "wait" and will not run after the ball until you release her and "find the ball" sends her on a hunting expedition if she lost sight of it.

Sit
Down
Stay
Come
Wait
Leave it
Take it
Give us a kiss
Roll over
Get to bed
Excuse me (he likes to sleep on door mats so I ask him to "excuse me" and he moves out the way.)

You can see a few of his commands on youtube:

Down/Leave it/Take it.

Cleo can do the following:

Sit
Get down - as in off things
leave it
talk
cuddle
Paw - for right front paw
Other Paw - for left front paw (or the other way around if she forgets! :-) )
kiss
Go to bed
Get in your basket
come - but only when she wants to or when a whistle is blown and we are out.

Things she understands (kind of) but doesn't do unless there's a treat involved
lie down - but only for a split second
stay

I really wish I could get her to do these last two things but she absolutely refuses to do either. When you say stay she sit really excitedly and sort of shuffles around on the spot on her bum. We're looking into obedience classes as I'd like these sorted I feel it is very important.

Tybalt is 16 weeks old and so far just knows 'sit' 'crate time' and 'come here'. He will lie down most times when we tell him, but we think this is because he just likes to lay down, anywhere and not because it's a command:rotfl:

Merlin can do sit, down, off, stay, stand, heel, give me five, high five, can count to 50 with his paws, kisses, weave, and shoot the dog :), he can balance a treat on his nose , so we are learning how to flick it up to catch!

Oakley can do sit, down, off, stay, heel (ish), high five, and kisses - he is a bit slow at learning tricks - he'd rather be off chewing a chewy stick.....:rolleyes:

Lucie is 2 yrs old....she does
*sit
*down (lie down)
*paw
*high5 (giving a paw at a higher height)
*crawl (crawl along floor in a down position)
*bed (goes to her crate)

Have been trying sit/stay and leave but nothing works with her!
When i try sit/stay she just wants to be at my side. Am still trying to get her to do the leave command but i dont really hold much hope for it!
I try to repeat her training commands at least twice a day.
When Lucie is off lead and there are no birds around or water she does come back....but she is just so easily distracted.:bang:

Oh my! Can anyone offer any tips on training? I have a new puppy and would love to teach her many new tricks. When is it "too young" to start training?
Thank you-

It's never too young to start with basic obedience. Look into a nearby training classes; they are the best way to learn and socialize!

I live in a small town and no one offers classes- I would have to drive to a larger town 2 hrs away. I do want to start on her early because I think they learn faster as puppies- as do children :o)

I agree never too young to start training just keep it short. Maybe check out a book at the library or watch some youtube videos.

Maverick knows...

vocal commands: sit, down (lay down), stay, touch (he jumps up and touches his nose to my hand), front, finish, come, roll over, get your ball (this is for fetch and flyball), watch me, drop it, leave it, heel, off (means 4 feet on the ground weather one the sofa or jumping up on someone), go nite nite (go to kennel), wait, go potty, in your seat (sit in the backseat so I can seatbelt you in), and we're working on speak

hand signs: sit, down, stay, front, finish

I'm sure there is more that I'm forgetting.

You don't need classes to train your pup!! I train both my dogs at home and it goes very well! Just give the command while he is doing what you want him to (if he doesn't do it right away you can help, great tips in books also, I'd go visit my library if I were you) and give him a treat. How sooner you start the better, they learn the fastest when they're young, but it doesn't mean you can't train an older dog!!

Well, I have some great new ideas now, thx everyone!
Isn't it amazing how much they actually can understand?!

Merlinsmum, how do you learn you dog to count to 50? Really curious!!

Its easy! Its just like teaching paw and then with the "tone" and the game it just works......

I never taught Merlin to give paw I taught him to "Give me 5" (I wanted to pass on a trick that came from the bestest golden retriever in the world who wen too soon...... his trick "Gi me 5 Mags!" so we got "Gi me 5 Merls!").... then it was "gi me 10" but pointing to the opposite foot.....

I'm sure he could count higher but after 50 you get a look of disgust:rolleyes:

Its hard if you have a thicki like Oakley!

The best way is to stand in front of you dog in a sit/down position, use a ball, swing your arm back so that the dog stands up and then back to the front to stop them from moving. Its hard to explain without seeing it.

With Merlin I use my hand facing down, palm flat and sort of just move my hand forward a bit, but Merls is a clever dood!

to teach angel to stand i put her in the sit next to me then put a treat infront of her nose a very smelly one so she knew to work hard lol and then i pulled it up so she followed and said 2 feet she doesnt know it as stand because i say 2 feet and then walk walk walk to get her to walk on 2 feet lol..
anyways its 9am and ive had no sleep at all so i wont write down a list of tricks coz she knows a fair bit :) but my all time fave trick of angels is give mummy hug.. she stands on 2 feet puts one paw on each shoulder and rests her head on one shoulder.. it is so cute and everyone who comes to visit her always wants her to do it lol

how do you get you dog to roll over angel wont do it :S she does on grass like when shes rolling in the dirt but when i try teach it she looks at me like you what?? lol help!! i want to do freestyle with her as a hobbie but its no good if she wont do roll over or play dead lol
