Look what I taught my puppy!

I want to be a dog trainer when I am older so I teach my dogs a lot of tricks. This is the newest one I taught my Chihuahua/Min Pin Tagg.
Pretty (Beg)

And this is something I want to start teaching him

What do you think?
I have taught my dogs to do:
Leave it
Beg (Pretty)
Get me a pop (A lab would get me a pop out of the fridge)
Close the door
Pull a cart
Stack (Stand up like a show dog)
And there are more, but I can't think of them

That is great! I have a long haired Chihuahua that knows absolutly no real tricks....not even sit. I think she could use your help, LOL. She just is not patient and she hates treats, so no luck there. I give her belly rubs and a scratch on the head for praise and she just loses focus. She is however trained to do a few things, like.....making me feel happy, cuddling up by me while I'm watching TV, or racing me to the mailbox every afternoon.

He was the one that leaned backwards lol. He didn't actually fall off though.

Cool! I've been teaching my dog sit pretty for a while now. It's so hard because of how big he if. It also doesn't help that he has basicly no balence.

I taught my Staffie x Ridgeback beg but to the command of "Scooby snack"for my granddad who goes on and on about how he should have been called Scooby so taught Indy that for a little laugh.
Did try and teach him doggy freestyle but he's just too bulky and I'm too small for us to do it comfortably.
What Indy knows so far:
Stand (work in progress)
Stay sit
Stay Down
Come around (goes round the back of me and sits at my left side)
Close (moves closer to me)
Same paw (repeats paw with same paw, very useful for the vets)
Other paw (switches which paw he gives me)
Come to the front (comes from a stay to sit in front of me)
High five
About (command for turning round to the right to go the way we came)
Left about (command for turning round to the left to go the way we came)
Turn (comes towards me when weaving)
Back (goes away when weaving)
Scooby Snack
Through (command to come through my legs)
Off (get off the sofa, can also be done through a death glare)
Leave (usually when he's bugging the kitten but very useful)

And at the moment he's being trained to be a gundog, he'll probably never go on a shoot but he needs to do something with that brain of his. He's loving it and has picked up on it very quickly. Hopefully he's going to be ready to enter a novice class at a large game fair in two months.

Planning on teaching him somehow to open his mouth on command so if the vet ever needs to look in his mouth there's no fight.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

^My dogs also know off. It is a very useful trick when someone comes into the house and they don't want to be jumped on.
They also know seek (I hide stuff and they find it)
watch me
I have to keep thinking of them, my older dog knows all sorts of tricks, but I haven't used them in a while so I am like "OH yeah, she knows this too!"

I've been teaching my mini schnauzer pup some new tricks but not sure if it's anything new.
stand(helpful for vet)
Puppy pushups (sit-down-sit-stand)
take a bow
leave it (immediately leaves whatever she's doing and sits)
shake a paw/other paw
out (get out of the room)
come (from far distances)
hide'n'seek < HILARIOUS
kisses (not licking but just sticks her nose on my cheek)
Jump (over my leg)
up(stand on hind legs)
dance (stand on hind legs and twirl)
Can't think of the rest :S
But I need some more ideas!!
