Other than the few minor (VERY minor) OB commands (which, remember, my pups believe that commands are "optional" hahahaha), my dogs aren't trained to do any real tricks either.

Oh wait!!!!
Luke is pretty darn good at catching a piece of popcorn if I toss it at him.
Ophie, otoh, just waits for it to fall, then she darts after it.

Chewy knows:
Up (sit pretty)
Shake + other paw
Bring me the leash
Hop up (like into a vehicle or onto a bench)
Easy...easy...get it (she stalks a toy, then pounces on it)
Which hand
Touch (a post-it)
Push (a very light-weight door)
Get the kitty (NOT what is sounds like. It just means charge, like to run off a stray dog or a loose cow on the other side of the fence)
Leave it + let's go (ignore that dog and keep walking)

Not always consistent with actually DOING the rick, but he knows what they are

Down (more the hand signal than the command, though)
Come here
Wait/stay both are the same thing, wait is more he's going to be released, while stay means he stays until I go get him)
Break (release word)
With me (stay where I can see you, and check in frequently)
Go play (go away from me)
Hey look (look at me)
Heel (loose heel position, just next to me and facing the same way)
Come on (follow me)
Go kennel
Go car
Out (get away from where he is)

And basic agility stuff like
Walk (dogwalk)
Frame (Aframe)
Go tunnel
Go chute
Touch (target plate)

He also knows some stuff that's just with a cue, like depending I'll point in a direction and he'll go there, Or if I hold my hand out towards him he touches it with his nose. Agility has taught him to read off of my body language quite a bit, so he goes whichever way I'm facing.

Mine know a lot. A lot are directional type cues. (A lot of go over there, get on this, etc) People seem to find it odd/amusing that my 5 papillons will listen to me like that. I don't know why but we were swimming and I told the dogs to leave the fence and they did and it astounded a lot of people last weekend. "Did you just tell them to do that?!' I can pretty much point the dogs at anything and tell them to climb it or point them a direction and have them stand there. Very useful for photographing them!

A lot of our commands are agility related. Lots of targeting, weaves, jumps, contacts, etc.

A lot are useful things like come, heel, stay, release, down, sit, stand, wait, easy, kennel, quiet, leave it, drop it, etc. Not really 'tricks'. I don't know what I'd do if I had a dog without at least a come, down, stay, leave it, and a form of release.

They know some silly tricks too like play dead, roll over, walk on 2 legs, army crawl, shake, cop cop, high five, dance, spin, jump, head down, hop backwards, etc etc. I've never really listed them all and counted. But there's a lot. I love training my dogs.

I forgot over too! As well as up. Over is jumping something, up is jumping onto something (poor Quinn, I'm always asking her to jump up on logs and stumps and stuff in the forest, LOL).

Basics and tricks:

-Stand (rusty)
-Heel (her swing finish is way better than actually walking at heel, though)
-Watch me
-Leave it
-Hand touch/target objects
-Roll over
-Go to mat
-Leg weaves
-Close cabinets

-Walk it

That may or may not be it... we've just been doing the agility lately, it's been a while since we've done any other training.

Funny how the things you use in day to day life slip your mind. Yeah, that means more addtions to Caleb's list. LOL

-Go to bed (get in the truck or a crate)
-Get on the mat (stand on a towel, rug, dri dek tile, etc to get dried off or brushed)

I forgot some too
-on your chair
-in your bed (crate)
-go get it
-bring it here
-go to the window...

Laurelin: how did you teach them to go wher you point?
My old dog learned that right away without me really having to actually teach it. Fidget sometimes does it but many times just acts confused when I point and say 'over there'

Phew, takes a long time to type on the tiny keyboard on my smartphone...
