Maggie has learned to shake, lay down, roll over (both ways), speak, and stand up on her hind legs. I am working on trying to get her to do 360's while up on two legs. Than I may work on playing dead. After that, I think I am out of ideas for tricks.

Any ideas?

What about the treat thing on the nose? You put a treat or a cracker on her nose and then when you tell her it's ok, she snaps it in her mouth...I've only seen a lab do this, but I know boxers are much smarter and more talented than labs!!! ;)

A bow is always cute :) I taught Ruben to weave through my legs as I walk along (yes, I am tall). I have to take a longer stride than usual and we can now go about 20 steps :) He also crawls along the ground commando style - this was something he did naturally - all I did was give it a 'name' LOL.

Clyde does the nose thing...and he'll do it with almost anything that I can get to rest on his nose....Kong, ball, treat, whatever.

Cricket will rub her paw across her eye and nose when I say "Don't cry, Cricket!" It's very cute. We taught her that by putting a piece of scotch tape on her nose and when she went to rub it off, gave her the command.

Like the nose idea. Walking between your legs, that's awesome. That would be tough, but maybe I'll give it a go.

I love the commando crawl! Also, the don't cry! That is so cute. I think our babies would do just about anything with patience and time. They're just so smart. Of course, mine don't do any tricks - they just sit around and look cute! Oh, I forgot, Beauty's "trick" is to lay on the floor with her back legs kicked out and graze her dry dog food out of the pan...
