    Hey! I am a dog owner of 6 years and my dog already knows they basic stuff, sitting, staying, healing, that kind of thing. I have also taught her how to sneeze o command, climb up playscape ladders, and go down slides. She is kind of hard to teach, but I can get her to do pretty much anything if I work with her. Have any new tricks you think might be good for her?:dogbiggrin:Thanks!

    Check the past monthly challenges for extra ideas, but also I recommend the book "101 Dog Tricks" by Kyra Sundance and Chaucy. Look up Silvia Trkman's vids on YouTube also( are some more:

    -Heel backwards
    -Weave between legs(forward and backward)
    -object discrimination
    -Long distance stays(from sit, down, and stay)
    -Commands at a distance
    -Off-leash work
    -Advanced distractions
    -Targetting(which you can easily apply to a wide variety of different commands)
    -Retrieving certain household objects(keys, remote, phone)
    -Getting a tissue
    -Speak(both loud and quiet)
    -Pack your bags! (run to an unzipped suitcase, jump in, and lay down so that it is closed)
    -Lifting certain legs

    For some reason I'm braindead right now....I've got a million ideas milling around up there somewhere but I think that part of the brain is sleeping. Look for similar posts in this forum and others, and you should get many ideas. The possibilities are endless. One of mine knows 40 commands and counting, and a friend of mine has a Shiba Inu who knows 50 and counting. Get creative and just see what you can come up with!

  7. szecsuani Experienced Member

    If you do clicker training, and you don't have any ideas, try this:
    1. Sit down on the ground with a buch of treats around you
    2. click for anything the dog does, and you like. Like scratching, cocking head on one side, basically anything! :)
    You will be surprised how much tricks your dog can think of! :) :msnwink:
