Unusual Tricks

Hey all,

So Ollie finally learned 'play dead', and I'm looking for additional tricks to teach him. Just a recap for those who don't know I am a speech therapist in a public elementary school and Ollie is a certified therapy dog via TDI, and I use him to teach and help kids generalize language and phonological skills.

If your pup has an unusual trick please post up, a video would be nice too!

I caught Ollie howling as someone he loved passed by the front window, I would really love to put a hand signal on that! but I've only heard him howl once. and it was a pretty awesome howl. my big girl Kara howls, so I think he learned it from her.

I want to teach him to sneeze on command, but he rarely sneezes and the other one I want him to learn is to cover his eyes.

Well, on more I'd love to but a hand signal on him wiping his face on the floor, when he's cleaning his beard, so so cute!

Here's a list of tricks he can do already:

down, sit, stay

leave it

roll over

bow, play dead

shake (left and right paw matching yours)

kiss (where you point to)

ally oop (paws on), and off

jump (up and 360)

fetch

bark on command, growl on command

math (counting by tapping the paw on my hand)

wave hello

high 10, high five

down all the way (chin to the ground)

on your side

spin (either direction)

dance (on the hind legs)

imitate (you bark he barks, you growl he growls)

descrete trials (can discrminate words and pictures with his nose)


any cool tricks are appreciated!

Someone had a video of their Havanese closing cupboards.. And I saw another where the Havanese had about 20 different stuffed animals and knew one from the other.I also want to see a video.I think I would love to teach mine some tricks my big challenge would be to teach them together.

That is impressive. I was looking on line at dogs doing tricks and one I thought was cute was a Havanese that would "say his prayers" the owner would put his arm out and the dog would put both paws on his arm and tuck his head in between his paws with his eyes down.

My sons lab does a trick that goes along with sit and shake the next command is "bump" if you put your fist out he will bump it with his nose. I love doing that one with him.

I bought the book 101 Dog Tricks by Kyra Sundance and it has some good ones in it.

Play dead is one I'm working on. Finally got roll over. I may have to interrupt this trick training to train Ludo to stop barking!

What about an old-school "hide and seek 3-cup with ball or treat" trick?
