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
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)
bark on command, growl on command
math (counting by tapping the paw on my hand)
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!
