Flag Dog tricks?

I am working with my neighbors dog (since I don't have a dog) and training her just for fun. They don't really train her, they used to not even take her out to potty. They are better about it now, thank goodness. When I watched her for a week, I gave her a lot of treats and even some canned food. I felt bad for her. She (her name is Madori) likes me better than them. She comes when I call her and she used to go home when they told her too, but now she only does when I do. Anyway, she already knows sit, shake, and lie down (pretty good). She is really good at sit and always sits when she sees me coming with treats whether I say "sit" or not. Shake is getting very good, but when she does, she is very excited for the treats and flails her arm like crazy. I am not sure what to do about that yet. Sometimes she gets them confused because she is so excited, but I am working on that too.

She also jumps...a lot. I am trying to train her by turning my back when she jumps and praising her when she is on all fours. So far it hasn't really worked, but I am not ready to give up on her! She is a bit mouthy when I play rough with her, but I think that's pretty normal, I make a high pitched sound and she stops. I have seen dogs that mouth much harder for attention. Her's is for play, so I am not really worried about it.

She is a very friendly dog and I was wondering if you had any cool trick ideas and how to train her with them. Sorry it is so long Thanks for reading.

Just thought of another trick, I had one treat in my hand and nothing in the other and then she had to paw at the right one. She has already taken to it! I am only doing a little bit of training per day because I don't want to overwhelm her. I do a few tricks nad then play for a little then a few more and that's good fro the day. Sound good?

It's great that your putting more time and efford into her then her owners are. For the jumping issue say 'No' in a firm voice, cross your arms and ignore her, once she get that 'hey when I do that she doesn't lay attention to me' she shouldn't do it anymore.

I taught Kibbles to play dead by making him lie down and making a 'pow' sound and rolling him on to his side. He can also dance with me when I tell him to jump up. What else can he do... Ring a bell to go outside, paw, speak.

If the dog is willing and you are willing she can be taught almost anything. I have a friend who taught her dog to jump rope.

Thanks for the advice! She has pretty good manners beside from the jumping, and they used to get in trouble from Madori and almost had to give her up. If that happens I want her to be adoptable (:

I think play dead sounds very cool! I will try that! I mostly try to work with her when it is just me and her, so that she doesn't get distracted by other people. I've noticed that when there are other people around, she gets frantic and doesn't pay attention. I want to try the dance one, I have a friend whose Jack Russel can do that. Its neat! I didn't think I would be able to train her that, because she is a big dog (I think a shephard/doberman, that's what I think but they have no clue) but since Kibbles can do, I think she could. Thanks again

It might be easier with a bigger dog since if your not taller then the dog when it's standing up it can put it's paws oN your shoulders.

Its great you are helping the dog out by spending time with her ^^ I bet she appreciates it. I dont use treats when I train so any tips I give dont use them but if you like to use treats Im sure you can figure out when to praise her with them I have my dog Kye trained to "smile". He is very fussy about his whiskers so I used to rub them and say "smile" and when he lifted hius lips I'd praise him. Now he "smiles" whenever he wants something. I tell him to lay down and he smiles, lol. Its an easy trick to learn. I wish you luck with some new and neat tricks!
