Are you the proud owner of a hammy pocch? Can your Pup do tricks? Like what? Our Pup is about an 80 lbs Chocolate Lab named Hershey. He's almost 2 years old now and had sucessfully won his way into our hearts and every piece of furniture we own. He loves to please is loves to be loved. He has 5 acres to run on and loves to socialize with other Dogs. Some of his better tricks are of course fetching - he loves to play ball, He will retrieve forever!. He sits up and begs, he shakes hands, he plays dead dog, and he knows most of his obedience commands, sit, stay, wait, leave it, etc.... What about your Dog-? What can your Pooch do that makes you smile and be proud?

I have two dogs, a shih-tzu called Poppy and a lhasa apso called Penny, and they can both do tricks. When I come home from work Penny greets me with an actual smile! Honest. You have to see it to believe it, but it's true. She does it when she sees my best friend too. When I sit Poppy on my lap and snuggle my face into her ear, she emits a throaty sound, like she is trying to talk to me! I am trying to get it to sound like she is saying hello!

Snuggles (Shar Pei/Sheppard mix) is too old, stubborn and snooty to do tricks. She thinks that type of thing is beneath her! LOL. We are still working on Buddy, who is American Pit Bull/Yellow Lab mix. So far, we have gotten sit and stay to stick in his brain, but that's about all. He does play fetch with his soccer ball, until he decides he's tired...then he will drop it clear at the other end of the back yard.

My dogs best tricks are how to get humans to do tricks for them, such as - get up, sit, open the door, close the door, fetch (treats), get my leash, throw the ball, etc., etc. Aren't they smart!

Hi matlgal! I have 2 adorable shih-tzus. They don't do a lot of tricks. But they know how to fetch ball and all the basic obedience training. I'm pretty proud of myself actually cause I've trained them all by myself. There's this one trick though that's so special about them. They know how to show their love to me by kissing me on my chin.
