i was hoping that some of you would share your fabulous dog tricks. valentino, maycii, and melanii are all really smart and so eager to learn. they all know the basics like situp, paw, rollover but i was hoping for something EXCITING!!! i saw this boxer in a movie once who would play dead after being shot with the finger pistol. it was cool. also a pekinese who could sneeze on command. i have valentino putting his paws in the air when i say stick em up but that's as far as he'll go. any sugestions
Kiba can wave.. Stryder I'm working on. They can both high five from various positions. Kiba is too chubby to sit pretty, but Stryder been starting to do it naturally so I might try and teach him how to stick up his pawas or something of the sort...
valentino always looks at me funny when i give him a command like ok .. now you. it's funny that i teach them all the same tricks and they choose what they will and will not do. like maycii and melanii will dance but valentino won't. melanii will sing on command but the other 2 won't. maycii and t will roll over but melanii won't. they all high 5 and give kiss. it's funny. i want to teach valentino to bark on command. you know speak, but it's really hard. he's really not a barker. he looks at me like you're on crack. haha i bought the book dog training for dummies. haha i think it's easier for the dogs to read than it is for me. you know what i did teach him though on accident .. i taught him how to attack by saying sick em. i said it a few times playing around and he really caught on. now i tell him to sick him and he goes after my husband. whoopsy. i din't think it would work but hey .. it could come in handy.
Ha! I just taught Blaze to fall over dead when I pretend to shoot her. She is soooo funny doing it! I had to start out with the sit, shake, down, roll over all real fast now she just lays down and over with all four paws in the air. Just too cute! This took only a day or so.
Would love to teach her to say her prayers next. I wish I didn't have to work so I could play with them all day! lol
I found the ONLY way she will learn a trick is when it is just her and me. No other dogs or people around.
Auggie - the mix - loves to dance! He gets up on his back legs and jumps in a circle when I tell him to 'dance pretty'. I also got him to do the cha cha. He dances in circles then comes straight forward hopping along. (It really amuses kids and guests.) Gracie - the big one - loves to sit on her back legs and put her front paws on your arms so that she is vertical. Not really a trick, but it is soo funny to watch.
my dogs tricks: high fives, shake, spin, jump, scooter ride, agility, jump off diving board, shake, wag tail, swim, jump through hoola hoop, sit like a lady LOL, and many many more :) I will probably think of more later LOL
Mollie can find her ball and her kong on command (came in handy when the kong got lost in the snow in the back yard), whos there?(she goes to the window) Dads home(she goes to the window and whines) Speak(she barks) Achoo!(she will sneeze) Wheres Taco? or just say kitty (she'll search for the cat and bug her)This also comes in handy when the cat is meowing non stop and I don't want to get up to get her to quit. I also taught her to spin in a circle, tried the 'say your prayers', she was not amused so I'll try again later.
Rocky only knows sit and shake a paw. Anytime I try to teach him a trick he lays down and rolls over on his back like I just beat him. Hes still kinda timid.
wow!! really great tricks guys. what mix is auggie lovinbullies? i think any dog doing the cha cha would be cute to see though!! we get melanii to do something similiar but we tell her to dance like a ballerina and she spins, and spins and spins. i don't think she knows how to stop. lol she falls out when she gets dizzy. hehe
poodlerocks you have some wicked cool tricks. i tried to get valentino to jump off the dock at the dog park the other day but he wasn't having it. so when i gave him a gentle nudge, he fell off into the shallow end and hurt his leg. geez .. the vet said don't do that again. ever .. yikes. in the future i'll stick with the tricks that don't nearly kill them!!!
ugggh .. boglelover you are so lucky. my 2 favorite tricks are speak and achoo. i have been working on achoo and none of them even seems remotely interested. i think that is the coolest trick ever. or when you sneeze they get the tissue. that rocks. any thoughts on how i can get any of them to do it. the book says blow in there nose to make them sneeze then praise them. uggh i gave maycii a rasberry once on her mouth/nose and she wound up in the emergency hospital. huh .. maybe i should give up on the tricks before i kill one of my dogs!!
wileyblaze highjack away .. you have to post a video of buddy doing that .. if not at least send it into americas funniest animals or something. you'd for sure win the bucks. i love your dogs. they are georgeous and i love that wiley was rescue and that you didn't give up on him when the going got tough. i applaude you. whoops off topic but hey still very true. i saw them on dogster wiley and .. sorry i forgot the girls name but she is a beauty too!!
teach me how to do peek a boo halosfire pleease. i think that's a great trick for maycii. everyone says she's such a flirt!!!
wel the only thing brandy can thats out of the ordinary is she can hi4 and wave good bye. seh could do a lot more cos shes a samrt dog but she just isnt botherd. lol! iv been trying to teach her stuff for ages bt she just gets frustratd and trys to get the treat out of my hand lol!
I can't tell you all of my dogs tricks,for I have twenty dogs!
Kayla, knows how to sing B-I-N-G-O, she barks,howls,yaps, and stands on her hind feet and dances the whole time(spins in circles,walks backwards, and weaves through my legs).
Odie knows : Spin,lay down,sit preatty,sit,HI-5, shake, crawl, sneak up on his toy on command then pounce on it on command,Speak, Shut up, and "Go to your room" (when he does some thing bad,I say it and he goes to his crate for until I say "Come on!" He just walks right out.) And he is seven months old.
Mickey:Plays dead,crawls,speaks,spin,shut up,lay,sit,stay,come,juump through hoop,crawl under couch,go through tunnle,and his favorite thing to do is ride my horse "Mario"! I put him on the horse and he takes the reins in his mouth and walks over poles.
I should put pictures onsome time but do not have a Photo Bucket account just yet.
I'll tell you more of my dogs tricks later but theese are the cuttest. (I think)
The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horses ears!
super cute prissypets and i'm sure we'd ALL love to see pictures. 20 dogs? wow. i would love enough room to have 20 dogs!!! i taught valentino in just 1 day the catch the treat off your nose trick .. he's so smart. at first he was so concerned with the treat in my hand that he was contorting his body just to smell it but when he realized that if he just sat still for one second he's get to eat the treat he was all about the trick. haha i taught nani how to say her prayers too. well a varied version of it anyway. she sits pretty with her paws together when i say it's time for bed .. say your prayers, then she goes to her bed. it's cute. the kids get a kick out of it. maycii was another story altogether. haha she seriously is the funniest dog EVER!!! she get's so excited when i bring out the treat container that she just goes into wild woman mode and breaks out every trick she knows. haha it's hillarious because when she rolls over she gets stuck. haha i need to upload videos. anyone know how? lol
Wow prissypets, i'm dizzy from reading all of those, lol. Gosh I wish my dogs new how to do such cool things. It's kind of hard to teach them because I have to take one into one room while the other 2 scratch at the door so the one doesn't pay attention and my golden retriever who is very smart just can't pay attention when you have a treat in your hand. As soon as you get a treat he sits down and stares at you with huge eyes and a salivating mouth then he throws paws at you then he sits down again then he finally tries to grab the treat out of your hand. *shakes head* he is so food driven. =P Jellybean is my net target; I think she'll be the on to show her brains. ;-)
