    I have only owned Leo since November. I was reflecting today, and realized that he knows a surprising amount of commands. Now, I am not a dog trainer by any means. We have never gone to any classes and I just like to play around with a clicker every once in a while. Which got me thinking, Chaz dogs must know so many more commands! So, I was interested in hearing them. Maybe it will give me some new ideas too.

    For this particular thread, I just mean commands (i.e. words that consistently get your dog to do a particular trained task), not words that your dog understands.


    Leo knows: Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Ok, Heel, "Go Potty", "Go Number Two", "In your crate", "On your mat", "Clean up", "Leave it", "Drop it", "Get it", "Bring it here", Bang Bang (play dead), Shake, High-five, Man (stand on two legs), Around (legs), Through (legs).

    No commands, but plenty of cues.

    :p

    I'm going to do Copper since her list is the shortest:
    Sit, paw, down, stand, touch, jump, tunnel, come (lol), up, off, walk it. She'll be learning a bunch more once I'm home, she's really fun to train and super nutty in general.

    They both know: sit, down, shake, woof, come, wait, up, off, go potty (kind of), go to bed, leave it (Rowan more than Riff), high five, drop it, and bang (play dead).

    Riff knows sit pretty (kind of) and bow (kind of)... lol. He'll get them, I just haven't worked with him consistently enough on those.

    Rowan knows "be people" (stand up on hind legs), spin, roll over, perch, wave, "over", "walk it", and other agility commands, and we're working on both "peekaboo" and rebound.

    Zora knows: sit, down, stay, wait for your food, Paw left, paw right, highfive, slalom (through my legs), human, big dog (she jumps up on your arm), give me a hug (this is adorable because she puts her front legs around you), perch, walk, roll over, search, jump, crawl, show me/drop it, come here, slow down, beauci (this is amusing. Beacerons like to lay on their backs in a specific way, Zora does it on cue ;) ) and we are currently working on pang pang.

    All of them! Or, well, a lot of them. At last count we had well over 100 tricks, cues, etc. Then there's situational ones like where "hit it" can mean rebound off a flyball box, a wall, a hip, a foot...

    stay
    come
    drop it
    beg (sit pretty)
    high five
    touch (hand target with her nose)
    dead retrieves (where's your ball?!)
    spin in both directions
    yoga (bow)

    We're working on pivoting to heel position. :)

    HA. Not a lot.

    Cynder:
    rock solid recall
    her name (attention/permission/recall)
    sit
    lay down
    wait (don't cross X boundary until I say so)
    stay (to an extent)
    off (get off of something)
    okay (release word)
    "cage" (kennel)
    "up" (stands on her hind feet for a treat)
    "GIT!" (get away/get out of the room)

    And of course, cue words, like, "Need to go out?", "Go lay down", "Want your dinner?" "Ready to go?" etc., etc.

    Abrams:
    his name (attention)
    "come here"
    "GIT!" (although in his case, he only backs up a step versus removing himself completely)
    OFF
    down
    sit
    stay
    "Get OUT!" (leaves the room)
    ENOUGH
    NO
    "pretty" (sit pretty)
    crawl
    roll over
    quit it! (stop squirming and hold still)
    "wait"
    "cage"
    leave it (although more by default now than actual command)
    "let's go" (very informal heel with automatic sits when stopping)
    "give it" (release the toy)

    And cue words such as "Need to go outside?", "Quit being a gross boy!", "Leave her alone!", "Want your dinner?", etc., etc.

    Sit, down, stand, come, stay, wait, back up, hi five (either or both), paw (put a paw on my foot, or put both paws on a target or object), circus (stand on hind legs), pretty, roll over, bow, heel, jump, walk it, tunnel, let's go, leave it, drop, give, go sniff, find it, this way (if he is going the wrong way in agility, or on a hike), right (spin), left (spin), easy (relieve tension on leash), around (right finish), get it, take it, off, mat, and crate.

    These are at various levels of stimulus control and some are definitely a work in progress.

    Josefina knows a LOT. lets see if I can list them all, I might be back when I remember more LOL.

    the basics (sit, down, stay, heel, come, loose leash walking etc ...) back, up, down, hug, shake, high five, leave it, take it, no, and a bunch of others I cant think of right now LOL. she is pretty in tune to me, so she can usually figure out what I want her to do, even if she doesn't really know.

    Sit, come, stay, watch your feet (this is for the stroller when he is getting too close so he will move over and not get his feet run over), touch it and tip it. He doesn't know a lot but what he does know he knows really well.
