Hmm mine know a few

Mojo is 6 years old, she knows:
Take a bow
Feet up
All the way up (for sitting on a stool)
Dead dog
Head down (she rests her head on the ground when laying down)
Go round (if she's outside and I need to send her to a different gate)
Wait and all the basics like sit drop stay....)
The hardest thing to teach her was the crawl - she still only manages to do a few "steps"

Hex is nearly 12 month old, he knows:
High five
Take a bow
Dead dog
Crawl- well we're working on it
Say your prayers - working on that too
Feet up
Up - he's getting better at sitting on a chair

The hardest think to teach him has been "speak" I just can't get him to bark It's one think I really wanted him to learn and it's just not happening

Gus is a yea and a half and he knows:
Sit (also knows in German)
Lay down (also knows in German)
Paw (and other paw)
Roll over
Out (exit a room)
Excuse me (when I need him to move from his laying position.)
And I'm teaching him to get tissues when I sneeze. Lol

Besides the obvious the easiest was probably excuse me..and the hardest was stay. Don't ask me why but Gus hates to stay..

Diesel (RIP) at 2 years knew:
Sit,Down,Stay, Come (the basics)
Sit Pretty
Left Paw
Right Paw
High 5
10 (both paws)
Hold (treats/objects on muzzle or head)
Play dead
Roll over
shut the door
cover your eyes

She was an amazingly smart GSD and learned everything very quickly the hardest trick to train her was roll over as she thought it was a game, easiest... well they were all in retrospect pretty easy

Default Here ya go.

Our girls are 9 and 3, they know the following:

Back (at the door, they try and crowd it, so "back" works great)
Off (this gets them off the sitting area, patio, deck etc.)
Out (kitchen, shop, kids play area etc)
leave it
bring it
Go get it
Find it
Go lay down
Go to bed
Go away
Hand signals:
Point a direction and they look that direction
Point a direction and give a Go command, they go that direction
Sweep the arm horizontal and say patrol, they search the fence in that area
Hand extended and either up or down motion with hand
Flatten hand and push down, they lay down
The slightest finger motion to come works as well

Wow, I think I may have forgot one or two, never really listed them, but they maybe pretty good dogs!
