I really want to teach my little guy to cover his eyes (with his paws) on command... in theory I know how to teach it... I guess I should just do it.

my two favorite tricks my little one does is count (paw tapping on your hand), and he can 'learn' to ID photos. like discrete trials.

here's a similar thread that might help out.

Those are pretty much the same tricks as Dizzie knows,also roll over,and putting them all together in different sequences.He learn't them very easily,but his dear half sister Nellie is not so good!She gets some of them.But gets way too excited!She lacks the same attention span,though she is clever in other ways!Always sneaking off with all the doggy toys and stashing them some where safe,so poor Dizzie has none!

Oreo is lacking in the tricks dept.

He only knows sit, down, up, come, stay and crate.

Oh he knows 'potty' too. I tell him to potty and he puts his head down, sniffs and pees hehe.

I made it a mission never to teach Oreo 'paw'. I really hate that trick for some reason.

Baxter can do sit, watch me, stay (sorta), jump (or up), dance, twirl (while dancing), spin around, lay, roll over, shake. We want to do high five and teach him to hop through a hoop.

Oh, here's a question. I've been working on teaching him to pick which hand has the treat. So, I say, "Watch Baxter," and I move it from one hand to the other very slowly, then say, "Which hand?" He gets it right about half the time, which has to mean he's guessing. Does anyone know whether this can actually be taught? He does watch my hands very carefully.
