B(w)agging rights!
« on: September 09, 2011, 12:40:24 PM »
How smart is your dog?

How many commands/tricks do they know?

Brag about it here!   :D

Babee knows several verbal commands as well as hand signals.
The hand signals are my own...
I never learned the "universal" signals, and we never went to "obedience" school.

She knows:
come here
heel
stop (will stop in the middle of walking)
sit
laydown
stay
go ahead (release to walk ahead)
go home
bed
outside
inside
office
downstairs
hungry
speak (fun with hand signal)
high five
low five
backup
jump
"bang!" (still working on the tail wag  Bumpurr1)
kisses
okay (release + phrase)
go say hi (release for greeting)
go eat! (release to eat)
mommy
daddy
kitty
come up
get down
out (of the kitchen)
toy
treat
walk (also "mail")
and, last but not least... Thank you!!  GOOOOOD GIIIIRRRRL!!    champ1

Do smartenss of cats count too? :)

Here is my short list that Shadow knows

Vacuume (she runs and hides)
Want to go outside? (she runs to the door)
Treat!! (goes to where the treats are stashed)
Grammas house (she looks at me like ok lets go)
I bring out cat carrier (she runs and hides)
saying claw clipping time (she runs and hides)
laydown (she lies down)

Short but sweet list :)

"No treats" refers to keeping out of the litter boxes - Pass
"No Chicken" refers to no tasting cats - Lacy Pass, Sparky Fail

We had to spell many words; Biscuit, cookie, out, walk, eat ... but the coolest thing was, 2 of our dogs smiled on demand.

Sure we got bunches of smiles from all of them when getting up in morning, or coming home (talk about a sneeze-fest!)

But nothing like saying "show happy!" ( giddy excitement required) and watching these 2 smile & sneeze themselves silly while prancing around!   funny2

The dogs probably knew what you were spelling.  They just let you "win" one.  ;)

Cute thread! Olyver knows a lot of hand signals. He's so good all I have to do is talk and he wants to please me and do what I say. I can tell when he doesn't understand because before he does ANYTHING he'll stand there and get this funny look on his face. Then as soon as he understands he is happy to oblige. When i say, do you want to go check the mail, no matter what the tone of voice I have he gets excited and runs to his tree to pee. Then he smells around there until I make my way back to the gate. By the time I open the gate he's right there waiting.

Simba also knew a lot of hand signals and words. Katie is learning quickly and already knows quite a few. Like Olyver she wants to learn and do things as long as I never tell her "NO" with a raised voice. That will sure fire make her do it. LOL I would love to learn how to teach her more. hint hint  :D
