So I have been thinking about dog tricks I want to teach Gaius after the pet expo, or tricks I want to perfect. But I thought I’d get organized an make a list so I can keep up with my progress. That way whenever I feel like I have nothing to train I can come back to this post.
- Do backwards Figures 8s around my legs.
Go around me in a circle
Jump on Command
-Hop to the side (into heel position)
Run through a hoop rolled on the ground
Nod Your Head Yes
Object discrimination (Hold up an object and ask your dog to pick the same out of a list of choices)
Two Dog Tricks
- Leap frog (Jump several dogs in a row)
-Weave between another dogs legs
- Sit in between another dogs front legs
- Circle another dog
- Ride another dog (Stand on it’s back)
- Kiss (Noses touch other dog) Would need a very tolerant partner
- There is a bunch of other stuff that could be done here.
Hide your head under a pillow
Dig the Ground on Command
Cross your paws while laying down (Legs may be too short for this)
Hold a Cookie on your nose without going for it (HA! I’ve tried to teach this several times and each time I sort of give up. He just doesn’t have that much self control)
Things we have been working on that need to be perfected
How embarrassed (Paw held over nose)
Mark (Lift his leg on something on command)
Lift and go through a hoop which is stationary on the ground.
Nod your head No
Caught your tail and spin
Blow bubbles in water
