Your Furbaby and Tricks

What tricks have you taught your furbaby?

So far we've taught Bella to sit, say "please" for her food and give a high five. Just reaaalllly wish she would get the "potty outside" trick! LOL

We have taught MacGyver to sit, stay, lay down, inside (go in his crate), outside, speak, up, take it/leave it, and shake. We are working on "come" but that one is taking a bit.

Capote is the only one to really 'get' tricks.. and he's food motivated as well.. Taylor isn't. With a lot of training we got to teach her 'sit, lay down, outside, bedtime', and to look at you when you say her name..and that took 150 bucks at petsmart to do..lol

Capote is my lil genius.. though he's too smart for his own good sometimes.. he knows when I'm not serious.

He knows, 'Sit, Stay, lay down, roll over, drop it, leave it, speak, shake, chicken (helps when he escapes out the front door) Go Potty, bedtime, outside, kitchen, and Up-on-the-couch-or-you're-going-in-the-kitchen (one he learned on his own over time..lol)

Repetition I find is the best way to teach them though.. be consistent and they learn it.

Roscoe has been SO easy to teach tricks! He's 16 weeks a so far we have:

- sit
- down
- shake
- give me 5
- dance
- kisses
- come
- wait (from about 15 feet)
- bow

and of course, drop it, leave it, and my personal fav, GO POTTY! but I don't really consider those to be "tricks" per se.

we are working on roll over and play dead ("BANG!") but he is usually quite excitable so they're a challenge! I want to do talk and speak but he is a very quiet guy, lol!

Maddie is just about 5 and she knows most of the same tricks, except she doesn't do bow but she does talk and speak quite well!

Pixie's best trick is she picks up her food kibble and flips it up and across the floor. She also likes to roll a ball to you. How did you teach Roscoe to bow?

Well, we've been working mostly on stuff for competition obedience and rally, so I haven't taught Kodi a whole lot that I would consider "tricks". In the trick category are:

Shake
Sit Pretty
Dance

In the "household dog stuff" category are:

Fetch
Drop it
Leave it
Loose leash walking

For self-control and attention:

Hand (nose)targeting
Foot targeting
Susan Garrett's "It's yer Choice" games
Susan Garrett's "Crate Games" (really REALLY useful!!!)

In the obedience category (some also useful around the house, but also part of formal obedience training):

Sit (stay)
Down (stay)
Recall
Set up
Front
Finish left
Finish around
Heel (work in progress... great at home, but he's still distractable in other settings)

Things we're working on:

Lots of Rally moves
Back
duration and distance on the stays
Stand
Stand for exam

We just started preliminary work with a dumbell today.

I get him to sit, then I pull a treat from up to down, so his head bows. And while I do it I say, "Roscoe, bow." He is starting to do it sans treat just by saying "bow." One of the easiest tricks I've taught him!
