great video! Mine knows how to shake a paw, shake other paw and then lay down. We are working on the roll over and high five:) we also play the game "find it" when I hide the treats and she finds them

Here's what I've managed to teach him (not counting the standard stuff):

Going up/down stairs on cue
Going to his spot in my room
Standing up on his back paws
Going to his crate
Grabbing something out of my hand
Picking something up off the ground (sorta)
Walking between my legs (sorta - just started)
Target my palm/finger/hand with his nose
Target a stick or other object with his nose
Jumping over objects (sorta)
Finds hidden treats buried under a towel/balled up in a towel

Upendi is adorable!! I like her name. What does it mean? Good work on the wave, I have found it's much harder to teach than simply shake.

And I will admit I devised a list of everything my dog knows because I was curious to see how much it is, but here are just the tricks..

Paw
Other Paw (still need a bit of work on it)
Don't Touch (for treats on her paw, that kind of thing)
Spin
Twirl - opposite direction as spin
Take A Bow
BANG! - play dead
Roll Over
Close it (small doors and drawers)
Gimme A Kiss
Up

Lacey....north/south paw, wave, bark, bring (anything asked for), take it to ?, spelling 67 words, touch (w/ nose), tap (w/ paw), find ?, more than i can remember.....

Tir....bark/whisper, smile (that's done very quick), north/south paw, shake, shake off (when wet/snowy), touch, wave, on your side, roll over (more that i can't think of off hand)

Saoirse....talk/bark, wave, shake (she doesn't have the focus that the others have so there isn't much more for her...i'll have to get working w/ her, i guess)

Titch...bark/talk, north/south paw, wave, shake, spin (left)/twirl (right), on your side, roll over (both ways), sit pretty, "where's Titch" (removes cover or looks in mirror), working on bow......

Chloe knows all the basics. The best and funniest trick she can do though is crawl. She will go straight across a room crawling for a piece of cheese, it's too funny.

Misty knows..

Sit
Wait
Stay
Lay Down
Up (onto couches/beds/any surface)
Off (of said surfaces)
Beg
Roll Over
BANG! (Play dead)
High Five
Shake
Other Paw
Crawl
Spin
Recall (successful about 75% of the time, we're working on it)
Leave it
No (a less specific form of "leave it" that tells her to stay away/stop the undesirable action)


We're currently working on "cross your paws", and BANG still needs a tad bit of work as it's not 100% yet. All the others are. :)

Is Upendi's name influenced by The Lion King II? Hahahah, just wondering!

Cerbie knows:

wave
speak
bow
bang
roll over
sneak(which is crawl with his belly on the gound)
tunnel ( we have a little play tunnel in our house)

where's Cerbie? you say where's Cerbie and he comes from behind you and walks between your legs and looks up at your face.
sit pretty or beg
and then the basics sit down stay come, things like that.

My girl is only 5 1/2 months old, but she's smart, and loves to learn, so we're taking advantage of it.

We know "Good Citizen Skills" Some of which are still work in progress

Off (100%)
Sitting down to get some petting, not jumping up unless invited to (85%)
Sit (100%)
Stay (90%)
Lay Down (100%)
Leave It (80%)
Stand Stay (100%)
Sit Stay (100%)
Down Stay (100%)
Wait (100%)
Release (80%)
Bring it (75%)
Go Get it (75%)
Recall in house (95%)
Recall outside or while distracted (50%) LOL!
Loose leash walking (60% now that we have the martingale collar)
Heel (on leash in house or in building) (80%)
Potty trained (100%)
Hand signals for most of the above without words (same percentage as if we say the words)

Parlour Tricks

Shake a paw (100%)
Other paw (100%)
BANG! (play dead) (100% buy boy is she slow going down LOL!)
Roll over (70%)
Give kisses (85%)


We need to work on enforcing some of the good citizen skills, I want all to be 100% especially the Come (recall), loose leash, and leave it, release. I think for everyone's safety, those are the most important ones.

It sounds like everyone has very intelligent dogs. :) And yes Upendi's name was influenced by Lion King II and it's a swahili word for love.
