I'm with Lies - a very important obedience exercise that has widespread application is the sit/stay and down/stay.
You can also introduce hand signals and work on a down from a distance. Proof what your dog knows in distracting surroundings too. As always when you start, set up the exercise to be easy - set up your dog to succeed, and reward quickly. Work up to longer stay intervals and distance very gradually. If your dog breaks a stay, or ignores a command from a distance, you are moving too fast, and need to go back a few steps.
