my malinois is doing great with his obedience the basics are solid. i would like to know more things people have don with there dog that are useful. I don't have him doing many "tricks" but he really likes his obedience job. i am recycling all the old commands. he knows how to lay down on the distance. and how to fall in, by walking around me to sit on my right side. and front which is is sitting in front of me. this is all the advanced stuff i am doing now.
You can also teach him how to pick up somethin like one of the wooden barbells and hand it to you. Teach to leave it, that's a good one. Everyone gets so surprised when I throw down a treat and tell my cocker to leave it and cone straight to me in a sit. After that then she knows as soon as I say ok she can go get it. Kind of neat, also taught her how to play dead. They really are smart.
