Default What Commands does your dog know?

I have only owned Leo since November. I was reflecting today, and realized that he knows a surprising amount of commands. Now, I am not a dog trainer by any means. We have never gone to any classes and I just like to play around with a clicker every once in a while. Which got me thinking, Chaz dogs must know so many more commands! So, I was interested in hearing them. Maybe it will give me some new ideas too.

For this particular thread, I just mean commands (i.e. words that consistently get your dog to do a particular trained task), not words that your dog understands.

Leo knows: Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Ok, Heel, "Go Potty", "Go Number Two", "In your crate", "On your mat", "Clean up", "Leave it", "Drop it", "Get it", "Bring it here", Bang Bang (play dead), Shake, High-five, Man (stand on two legs), Around (legs), Through (legs).

No commands, but plenty of cues.


I'm going to do Copper since her list is the shortest:
Sit, paw, down, stand, touch, jump, tunnel, come (lol), up, off, walk it. She'll be learning a bunch more once I'm home, she's really fun to train and super nutty in general.

They both know: sit, down, shake, woof, come, wait, up, off, go potty (kind of), go to bed, leave it (Rowan more than Riff), high five, drop it, and bang (play dead).

Riff knows sit pretty (kind of) and bow (kind of)... lol. He'll get them, I just haven't worked with him consistently enough on those.

Rowan knows "be people" (stand up on hind legs), spin, roll over, perch, wave, "over", "walk it", and other agility commands, and we're working on both "peekaboo" and rebound.

Zora knows: sit, down, stay, wait for your food, Paw left, paw right, highfive, slalom (through my legs), human, big dog (she jumps up on your arm), give me a hug (this is adorable because she puts her front legs around you), perch, walk, roll over, search, jump, crawl, show me/drop it, come here, slow down, beauci (this is amusing. Beacerons like to lay on their backs in a specific way, Zora does it on cue ) and we are currently working on pang pang.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

All of them! Or, well, a lot of them. At last count we had well over 100 tricks, cues, etc. Then there's situational ones like where "hit it" can mean rebound off a flyball box, a wall, a hip, a foot...

We don't know too many... Venice knows:

beg (sit pretty)
high five
touch (hand target with her nose)
dead retrieves (where's your ball?!)

We're working on pivoting to heel position.

"Go Get Terri"
"Drop It"
"Let's go upstairs"
"Time to go"
"let's go inside" / "It's cold"
"That's far enough"
"Hudson, if I hear you whine one more time, I'm going to kill you"
and he gets "sit" and "down" confused
