Mugsy is 5 months now and has several "tricks" under his belt. "Come" (which is quite handy when he is chasing the cat), "Sit", "Lay", "Dance" & "Speak" He responds to both voice and hand commands. I plan to teach him to roll over and shake too! It's fun. Maltese are very smart little doggies!

Please share your dog's tricks too!

Brinkley does..
Sit
Stay
Lay
Roll-over
Up/Walk...on his back feet
Dance (in a circle on his back feet)
Come (only when he wants to!)

Give mommy Kiss!

We are working on shake and speak...

He understands and responds to many other words like "no sir!", "treat", "bath", "potty", "get a toy", "eat", "ready for bed?", "Wash your face"...(I am sure there are more...)
THEY ARE SO SMART!

He can play dead and people sit??!! That's awesome! You guys are clearly doing something right. Our IzzyBella chases us when we run from her. We thought that was pretty clever.

Tuffy can sit, lie down and leave it. He also will let me put a cheerio on each paw and say just like that until I tell him he can have it. He's been hard to teach new tricks to because he gets so over excited when I pull out the cheerios that he just starts sitting and lying down and won't listen to anything I tell him! I blame him, but I'm also too lazy to really try to teach him stuff *lol*

parker knows:
sit
stay
down
head down (puts his head on the floor when in the down position)
give me a five (and give me the other one)
sit up (just say up)
dance (spins around)
wait
come


he refuses to roll over...and ive tried everything..he gets frightened.
he wont fetch b/c he has no desire to play with toys.
and i chose not to teach him to speak, b/c when i taught my moms dog to do this, she would bark at u when she wanted something, and i didnt like that.
i cant think of n e thing else to teach him..otherwise i would work on something new. :D

Cloud:
Sit
Lay
Jump
Kiss (my fav.)
roll over
Shake--this is sooooo easy. Just have your hand out and they naturally place their paw in your hand

Noriko
Sit
Lay
Clap hands
high 5
She's lazier or something

I KNOW they both know "come here." They just don't want to hear it! They know what I mean when I say to go:
Outside
Inside
Upstairs
Downstairs
In your crate

Granted Izzy is only 10 weeks old, but I thought we should get started on some commands so this morning during treat and play time, we did the SIT command. She was too busy running in excited little circles to listen. I pushed her butt down and then pretended like she did it on purpose
and cheered and treated her.

I had to laugh out loud at what Cookie does NOT know. hahaha You guys are incredible with what you are teaching your dogs. I'd better get busy!
