One of the trainers I work with swears to be 100% against teaching dogs to shake, especially as puppies..turn out a lot of them pick up on the scratching doors, people, furniture, food etc.. afterwards lol

I taught my first Siberian to say "Please" by placing his paw on my thigh. Yep- that resulted in him raking his paw down your thigh when he wanted something.

Sometimes I wish I hadn't taught Caleb to bring me things- like in the morning when he sees me start waking up, andhe sticks a sock in my face.

When Zoe was a puppy, she pawed a lot, so I taught her "Gimme five" really quickly. Now she paws with her giant bear claws all the time. Part of it is just her style of communication, but it is also a default for her, being one of the first commands she learned.

Now that we're doing nosework, I know she'll get into pawing at the source, which is bad for trialing, where destroying boxes during the container search - and cars during the vehicle search - is faulted.

Caleb's thing is nosing the tin or straw. And if I'm not fast enough, he picks it up. Goes back to teaching him to pick stuff up for me ("Gee, Mom, that tin/straw doesn't belong there. I'll get it for you").

Yeah, shaking here too. Wesley learned it at like 5 weeks old when the breeder's son taught it to him-totally ingrained. Speak is another one, but he's just barky. Luckily, he wasn't super reinforced so it's not a default. His current default behaviors are backing up, sad puppy (chin on the floor, your lap, the couch, whatever) and of course shake.

I will definitely not be teaching my puppy to shake after being hit so many times with those claws. Maybe she can learn how to when she's, oh, eight years old.

Giving kisses. Was he a semi-obsessive licker before I taught him that trick? I guess I'll never know.

Ugh, taught my spaniel "inside voice" when he barked. He was a HUGE talker. Unfortunately that would mean he'd have to be barking really loud to begin with. Not so great when you're all baffed out and vegging on the couch with your dog curled up behind your head and he feels like a little conversation.

I taught Rig and Holly to sit in front of me when we're getting ready to go out. They get so excited that getting collars and leashes on was like roping a kangaroo on crack. But they're fast and don't see the difference between me getting ready for a doggy outing and me getting ready to go to work. Once I get my purse.... every time I turn around, there they are, sitting pretty. I can't take two steps. We're working on sitting by the backdoor instead.

OMG! That's a perfect description.
