"Tricks", Obedience Ideas?
Ripley is just about five months and she is smart as a whip. I can't believe how quickly this dog picks up training concepts compared to the other breeds I've had.
She knows sit, down, come, follow, (short) stay, "leave it", walks reasonably well on leash, knows "bring" when she's retrieving and can bring me the ball wherever I go, and "drop".
Today we had a training session and other than "roll over" I totally blanked on other things I can teach her now that she's mastered so many things. Where I live it's currently over 110 degrees during the day so going outside for training to do more is not an option. It needs to be something we can work on in the living room. I typically train mid day when my kids are napping.
Ideas for tricks or other obedience we can work on at this age? I think scent stuff is really cool but I have no idea where to begin. However she is the first dog I've ever had where I can see her actively "sniffing" to find a ball in our large yard. So I know she has the nose for it!
