New tricks (non-GSD)

Okay, I know there have been about a million threads here asking the same question, but I can't seem to find any of them.

I'm trying to think of some new things to teach or new games to play with Riley. He knows his commands - verbal, hand signals and a couple commands in German (he picked that up while I was trying to teach Gunner. lol.) He already knows just about every one of his toys by name and will bring me the one I ask for.

This dog is so intelligent, I'm afraid he's going to get bored and I'm out of ideas!

Re: New tricks (non-GSD)

"Find it" is fun, in a similar fashion so are silly tricks like having the dog choose between 3 cups that you shuffled and only one has a treat under it (like the nut/shell game).
I've seen a few elaborate "routines" that border on theater. If your creative that's looks like it would be a lot of fun.

Teach him to find and bring you a box of klenex when you sneeze. This goes over great when guests sneeze!!

Re: New tricks (non-GSD)

Teah him to bring you the phone when it rings, or the remote to the TV. or maybe bring you your shoes? There are so many things a dog can learn.

Oh, that's too cute. I love it!
I like the idea about teaching him to bring me the remote, too.
