Default How many tricks/cues does your dog know?

Thought I'd start this partially because I'd like to get ideas for new things to teach, and partially because I'm just curious!

Maggie knows...not very many actually. I don't live with her anymore and only see her about twice a month (she lives with my parents as I now live in an apartment and she is their dog) so I don't get to work with her a lot, and I really only get to do things with her over long breaks. So pretty much everything she knows was taught either this past summer, or when I still lived at home.

She knows:
Sit
Down
Stay
Come
Roll Over
Shake
Back Up
Spin (only one direction, though I would like to teach the other one soon)
Bow
Paws Up (she puts her front paws on what I indicate)

...and that's it lol. Not very much, but I'll work with her more come summer.

Your turn!

Last I counted it was 75. I'd like to think it's approaching 100 now but I've not taken the time to count.

This...is hard. I'm sure I'm missing some, I just now compiled these lists. It's especially hard with Logan because at this point so much of what he does is done to tiny movements, shifting of weight, or nearly automatically. I don't actually speak many commands when he's working. The most commonly spoken ones are "Allons-y" and "Find _________."

go get the blanket
go get the pillow
go get your bone
go get your ball

My dog Jack (lives with my parents) knows a lot. The basics and then everything from getting a beer from the fridge, limping on command, blowing bubbles in water, riding a skateboard, etc. At one point I wrote the list down, but I don't have access to it.

Crossbone is learning! He knows sit, down, wait, stay, shake, pray, frog, cross legs, stick em up, go around, roll over, crawl, figure eights, agility obstacles and cues, and probably misc things I'm forgetting. I can't believe we've only had him for just about 5 months!

Crystal knows about 50, but I'm dumb enough that I only wrote them down once, and then lost the document.

These are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head...
  1. Sit
  2. Down
  3. Hi five / Other Paw
  4. Bang
  5. Shake
  6. Beg
  7. Get Your Tail
  8. Reverse
  9. Fit
  10. Peekaboo
  11. Go through
  12. Weave
  13. Heel
  14. Stay
  15. Speak
  16. Back Up
  17. Bow
  18. Come
  19. Touch
  20. Target
  21. Scratch
  22. Up-Up
  23. Pick it Up
  24. Dance
  25. Drop it
  26. Crawl
  27. Watch me
  28. Leave it
  29. Kennel
  30. Kiss
  31. Foot / Other Foot
  32. Where's Your Toy?
  33. Hide
  34. Go to Your Place
  35. Open/Close Door (have no idea if she still remembers this)

Uhhh I can't think of anymore at the moment. I really should have written them down, shouldn't I :P I really need more trick ideas, since many tricks put too much strain on her knees so we can't do them.

A lot. I have no idea. Especially if you consider agility work as 'commands' too.

Bed
Lay Down
Living Room (Get in there)
Ferrets are coming out (remove self from living room lest you be bitten)

Reading all the replies makes me feel like such a lazy trainer!

Cali knows: sit, down, stay, up (both paws in the air), touch (self-explanatory but she will touch with her paw whatever I point at), twirl (one direction, might try teaching the other direction)... and I think that's it.

We're starting rally and flyball though once training classes start up though, so we'll have a new selection of cues to learn.

Stop that.
Go away.


Otherwise they are obedience, agility, Schutzhund, dock dogs, and so forth.

lol they know plenty and I have no patience in listing them. However Cohen makes me feel lame with her hug trick. Jelly.
