What Tricks Does Your Dog Know? #MuttTricks

I promised I would do a roundup post showing off YOUR dogs’ tricks. Thanks to Julia for coordinating this idea when she asked if your dog knows these 5 tricks.

We asked readers to post their tricks to Instagram using hashtag #MuttTricks and you can still participate if you’d like. I always love to see what you’re working on!

Thank you to everyone who posted!

Here are some of my favorites:

First we have what I think is the most difficult, “Bounce!”

Kuba “rolling out the red carpet!”

Sasha: “Roll over”

A video posted by Michelle Kane (@dewthedo17) on

Dakota: “Spin”

I hope this talented and adorable group has inspired you to work on some more ideas with your dog this year.

In the comments, let me know what tricks you’re working on!

I’d love to know what you’re up to!

I was impressed by all of the submissions. And I enjoyed working with Baxter on "twirl." This gives me new ideas that we can work on together too!
