Default Tricks?

Hello, Just curious to know what tricks your dogs know. I am running out of ideas as to what to teach so i'm always looking for new ones.

They know almost everything from the basic sit stay, to throwing away trash and putting away their toys. I'm at lost as to what to do next.

Does anyone know any complicated tricks?

My labrador play with me one latvian game, at first he give me one paw, then other, then both together. As example, at first you once clap hands then, when you give him your left hand,he gives to you right paw, ; again clap your hands then you give him your right hand and he gives you left paw; again clap your hand and then you give him both hands and he gives you both paws. When you do this trick, then you must cower.

We also for circus drill learn commands-sit, stand and lie realize in latvian (our nation language), russian, english and german languages.

You can teach him bow or go between legs 8 (like in agility 8 or snake).

Sorry for my english.

My malinois knows the command "go nighty-night." The words "are you tired?" get the same response. When given these commands he will lay down on his side and put his head on the floor like he is sound asleep. This is one trick that he obviously loves doing. We visit a local retirement home once a month and he always gets a great response from the people we are visiting so he will do this one again and again.

how about a high 5 ???? my Minka does it, it's kewl
just put your hand up for a high five and say paw
your dog will raise its paw - scoop the paw up with palm of your hand and raise it and say high 5 takes a few times but they will get it
my Grandaughter loves doing high 5 with Minka when she comes, she thinks that Minka is the smartest dog in the world ha ha

Thanks for all of the responses, they are cool tricks except they are ones they already know. Well, they don't know any tricks in spoken languages but they do know a bit of sign language.

Kiara (my youngest) knows "Go to sleep", she lays down and puts her head down. They all know how to weeve and do High 5.

I've searchhed so many different websites nad just can't find anything more to teach them!

What about sing? When you say "Sing" or "Speak", the dog howls. Have you done that?

i've taught my dog to bring in the newspaper from the front yard.

another thing we are working on quite a bit is item discrimination and he understands the names for a decent number of different objects already. it's quite challenging to get them to a point where they correctly and reliably understand the names of individual objects and can pick the correct one from a group.

another thing that evolved from item discrimination is "give me that", which has taken on the meaning of "give me whatever is close by and i am pointing at", so for example if i drop my wallet, keys etc., i can tell the dog to bring the item to me, even tho he might not know the proper name for "that".

Ki (my youngest) knows names of some different objects..
Bottle
Ball
Stuffy
Frisbee
Slipper
Remote

I think those are all she knows. She will also do the same thing.. "Bring 'that' here", whatever i'm pointing to she'll get it and bring it to me.

She's probably the most eager and willing to learn out of my three. She will also put her toys away when told to and put trash in the trash bin.

She knows all of the agility commands (learned them within 1 day of being on an agility course!), knows how to go around whatever object I point to, knows to jump on the pool raft when I tell her to, will lay down, sit, roll over, etc from any distance away from me. She bows, she crawls, she crosses her legs when I tell her to "be a lady", covers her face when I ask her if she's shy, and so on..


She really is a smart dog but I can't keep up with training her things. I'd love to get her into actual flyball or agility but all of the clubs train 30mins-1 hour away and my schedual doesn't permit to meet up as often as they do.

My other 2 dogs know their basics and then some. Simba, my oldest, knows how to say "I Love You". They are more content with just being my by side and laying around, however Kiara loves to be active. Usually she'd just go swimming everyday and keep herself entertained (she knows how to "throw" the ball into the pool and will go after it, and repeat.) but since the cooler months are here I haven't been letting her swim as often. I've even taught her silly things with the pool - "Go to the swimout", "Get on the raft", "throw the ball in", "jump in", etc. She even will jump in the pool while catching the ball at the same time.



I guess i'll need to do some more searching.

Here's a video of her throwing trash away if anyone cares to see.

What about training them to jump over something? I dunno, just an idea.
