Here is my Dukey-Boy. He is almost two years old and he has been with me since the day he was born. His mom, a purebred BC named Riika, was my heart dog. Unfortunately, she died in a terrible accident at two years old when the pups were six weeks old. Ironically, the last trick I taught her was the one that killed her. The trick itself wasn't dangerous, but the circumstances she did it under certainly were. Anyway, same old story, she got out when in heat and got pregnant. I'm quite sure the sire was a pit bull/black lab but don't know for sure. Anyway, he is a very sweet, calm and sensitive boy. So sensitive even a stern look or harsh word will reduce him to a quivering pile of fur-even if it wasn't directed at him. I have moderate anger problems, and he helps me deal with them. I hate seeing him act like this so have been trying my hardest to overcome my issues and, am glad to say, have made quite a bit of progress. So in a sense he is my service dog. He is very smart but severely unmotivated. He is incredibly lazy. It is very surprising beings he is half border collie and his mom was the absolute opposite of him. It is very hard to train him anything. However, I have managed to train him quite a lot. Here is a list of his tricks. Sit Pretty Back up Turn around. (Hand signals for left and right) Bring it here. (Anything he can in anyway get to me except metal objects. He refuses to touch those.) Go around. (Things as small as a tree or as big as our hay barn and corral. Hand signals for directional.) Touch my hand. Bow Play the piano Up (Patting or pointing to object) Jump (over my leg or other object or straight up in the air) Climb a ladder Back up a wall (In preparation for a hand stand) Shake my hand Other paw Give me individual paws as I point them out. Rear paw, front paw, or nose touches Open the door (Jump on to push open or stick paw or nose in crack and pry it open) Stand on hind legs Walk on hind legs Back up on hind legs Back through legs Sit before crossing road Stay on the right side of the yellow line when biking Get close (When a car is coming. Very little traffic on our rural roads makes biking off leash safe.) Open your mouth Put all feet on or in very small container, stool etc. Turn on or in very small container, stool etc. Ride a horse Hold object He knows a lot more but I wouldn't necessarily call them tricks so I won't list them here.
