my dog doesn't do any tricks. he follows a few commands.

sit, stay, come, down, wait/stop, leave it, drop it, heel (on or
off leash; on either side), other side (when i want him to switch sides),
go through my legs, back up, get the mail (goes to the mail man to
collect the mail. he'll get my neighbors mail and take it to them), go to (insert name),
find it (hide something thentell him to "find it). gives either paw, jumps on or off the bed or
sofa on command, go to the car (sometimes before we go out i'll open the car door. then
i'll come in house. i open the front door and say"go to the car". he goes to the car and jumps in.
if i lead off with my right leg he heels. if i lead off with my left leg he stays.

doesn't door dash, waits at the bottom or top of the steps for
a command before going up or down the steps, when i exit
the car he automically lays down, waits for a command to step off of the curb.

he follows hand signals for a lot of his commands.

Jerry knows:

here (come plus go to heel position and sit)
stay close/too far
go to your bed
up (sit from down)
off (off couch, bed, whatever)
jump (over an obstacle)
leave it
drop it
hug (stand on back legs and put paws on shoulder)
high five
give kisses
go home (go to front door)
get in the car
get in the back (for when he jumps in the front and I want him to go to the back seat)
be shy (cover eyes)
find the ball (we went to the dog park yesterday and there were no dogs there and we had forgotten his ball, so we told him to go find a ball and he looked around everywhere until he found one)

I feel like he doesn't know nearly as much stuff as he could, but that's a pretty good start! He listens so well and sometimes just seems to know what I'm saying that it's like he understand English. Other words he definitely knows are eat, dinner, breakfast, out, outside, ball, go, walk, park, and car. He always perks up his ears, gives you the head tilt, and starts prancing around if you say any of those.

Kyleigh knows:

sit, stay (longest - 10 minutes), come, heel, stay close (within 10 feet or so)
wait, stand, leave it, take it, hold it (in her mouth), drop it, find it (and then the names of her 8 or 9 toys), over, under, around, up, down, off, bring it, back up, stop

and as soon as the snow comes and she gets used to the sled ... gee, haw and MUSH!

Frag knows the basics + touch, "bang", high five, shake, other paw, "who's here?" (bark command) and rear end awareness spinning.

Recon knows the basics + touch, roll over, high five, double high five, shake, spin, take a bow, and he's working on "sit pretty"

Sir knows the basics + touch, shake, other paw, high five, and he's working on "sit pretty" too.

How do you teach a dog to blow bubbles in the water! My grandkids would love that trick. They love to watch Stella doing silly things.
We are starting a freestyle class this week. Should be interesting!

I don't know if you can teach that ... most puppies do it automatically, then seem to outgrow it as they mature ... which is sad, because it's so cute!

Gem knows the following verbal commands (sit, down, stand up, stay, come, jump, over, high five, pick it up, bring it here, out, find it (by scent))

She also knows the following hand gestures: sit (fist), down (pointing at the ground), high five (flat hand), stay (flat hand vertical), over (flip your flat hand half circle), come (bring your hand towards your chest)

She has not been to any training classes yet but I definitely want to sign her up as I'm not sure she would be so well behaved with distractions.

That is where I got the idea, but it might take time, but it is funny when the dog can do it.
