STG, I don't know if this is classified as a trick, but depending on how house training is going, I taught one of our poodle mixes to ring a bell when he has to go outside. I hung a ribbon from the doorknob with two jingle bells attached to the bottom low enough for him to touch them with his nose. When we first brought him home every time we would go to take him out we'd put him close to the bells and he would either touch them out of curiosity or we would give him a nudge. He learned that when the bells rang it meant "outside". He still, at nine months, will ring them every time he has to go out.
Wow, that's a really nifty idea! Very cool!

My hound can do all of these, as well as tear into the trash bags.

My collie can sit, come, laydown, rollover, fetch, and speak... he needs more work though, we may put him in another class....

After I taught my smart mutt all the average dog tricks, I decided I needed to go above and beyond normal...I taught HER to raise her leg when given the command "do your business." I love seeing people's reactions when she is lifting her leg next to theirs!

HAHAHAHA....I'm glad I'm not the only one with a useless dog. Mine's very good at sleeping, fetch, and eating/pooping.
I had a dog named Useless once... I had no idea what it meant... I mean, it never registered until someone said that was a mean name... (My dad named him...) I kind of like it... he was 180 lb belgian shephard / st. Bernard... monster dog....

Rascal can sit, lie down, stay, come, shake with both paws, touch things that I point to with his nose, roll over, dance in a circle on his hind legs, and play dead. Pippa can speak and roll over. ^^

I have taught my dog a lot of tricks she can bark on command and howl(my dad taught her those) and I taught her to spin/twirl lol, and she can shake and give high fives and low fives.

I shouldn't call my dog usless... He can actually sit, stay , lay down, roll over, fetch , beg, speak, all on command. He will go find his toys if you ask, he know the difference between go get your ball , and go get your bone. He helps us herd and move cattle (and he's a lab) He will sit for hours in the bed of the truck and is a constant companion for our children. He is a wonderful protector of us, we can't rough house with each other without him getting involved in breaking up what he see's as a fight. People don't ever just enter our house...Tanner is first at the door barking and sounding very mean. He can run miles beside the 4 wheeler and actually knocked down my son when he was getting too close to the water. (Tanner was keeping Eli out of the creek Bill and I were running to grab Eli and tanner knocked him to his butt.)

Tanner is very much a part of this family and I dread the day when his time on this planet is over. I've never had a better dog.

But he does lick his nuggets in front of company! :roll:

My dog can rollover, sit, stay, speak, lay down, play dead, army crawl, spin, shake, high five, all on command. He also comes but only for my dad or if you have food ready.

He also enjoys scaring the crap out of our neighbors while going on a daily stroll, refusing to move halfway through a walk and making me carry him (good thing he's little), chasing cars, golf carts and four wheelers, and rolling in deer poop.

I have trained my dog to release on commard, including a steak bone once. He also sitz, plots, and will leave amost anything I tell him to alone. This includes other dogs, his food, and toys. Those commands are in German (if spelling is wrong I bad), He has some police dog training. I'm not sure how far, he got but I don't think it was very far. He has trouble watching me, in class (Petmarts level 1), he learned every trick pretty quickly, when he wasn't watching for danger. I found, he watched black people and women closer than other, I haven't got a clue as why.
He is 2 now, I might have him trained in schuthund a little later.
