    I've got one!
    How would you teach your dog to lead a visitor via gently taking the wrist, and leading them to...for example the bathroom?

    That a good trick idea!

    I'm not exactly sure how to do this one as I've never trained it to my dog, but dogs do this somewhat when they want to go outside. Or atleast my dogs do. So I guess there would have to be something in it for the dog in the bathroom.

    That's actually a really cool idea! I'm going to work on this one with Tank, and perhaps the new Aussie if we get him. :D

    Not sure your dog is tall enough to grab anyone by the wrist! lol :D (joke)

    Maybe a pant leg or a sock if the dog is small?

    I would imagine backchaining would be the way to get this behaviour, as well as breaking down each step.

    E.g. teaching a go to room x on a cue
    teaching to grab pant/sock/wrist
    - then a cue for release
    and then asking to go to room x after cuing the grab VERY CLOSE TO THE ROOM (i.e. next to) - and then gradually increase distance
