    Hello, as you may have already guessed, I am new on this forum. I just stumbled across it when I was trying to find some new tricks to teach my dogs.

    I have two Boxers, a 1 year old fawn female named Ava and a 9 month old brindle male named Clyde. Both are in agility classes and we hope to be competing by next Spring. I've been on a hunt for new tricks, since it seems I have taught them everything I know, but it's getting difficult to find new tricks, so I will gladly accept any ideas for new tricks!

    Right now they know 31 commands but only seven of those are actually tricks, the rest are basic obedience type stuff (sit, down, stay, wait, backup, get up, off, come, et cetera....) and maybe 10 or so of those are just agility commands (Over, tip-it, walk-it, tunnel, et cetera...)

    I recently found a list of more tricks to teach them, but I am open to suggestions!

    LOL, I wonder just how many of us found this site by searching for tricks and trick training. I know I did.

    Yup, I too found the site when looking for inspiration for new things to teach my dogs.

    Fabulous that you are hoping to compete your boxers in agility, sounds like they will have a lot of fun, they are obviously very clever dogs.
