Crawl
Speak
Whisper (like speak only a very quiet little bark)
Take it and leave it
Sit up (sits on her butt with her front feet up)

She's doing so good!

She can do crawl a little but she seems to find that difficult :). I forgot take it and leave it, she learnt that at puppy classes :).

Unfortunately my partner doesn't want to teach her anything vocal lol, he doesn't want to encourage barking at all and she's such a quiet dog so i kinda agree.

I'd love to teach her sit up (like begging), we'll try that.

You could try and teach meow. We are teaching that now to Brody. When she whines or makes a really soft sound, reinforce it with "meow" and a treat. She's smart, won't take long!

That's so cute, post a video when he has it :)
I will! We're getting close. He has it about 50% of the time. Then he gets excited and starts doing little barks. It's been a tough one, but it's so cute when he does it. He opens his little mouth and no sound comes out and then you hear a little rrrrrooooooowwwwwrrrrrrr and then we target and say MEOW!

Hopefully he'll get it soon. It's unique and very cute. :)

Awww....what a cutie & little miss smartypants
Here are some tricks:
Take a Bow (basically their butt is in the air with their front feet down)
Sit up like a bear
Dance/spin on hind legs
Hop on hind legs
With Shake you can do 'other' paw so they give their other paw
Fetch
Walk backwards
circle 8's between your legs

awesome thank you, we will try some of those, we are working on beg at the moment, we use a clicker which really helps her get it :)! We might make some weave sticks for the garden teach her those before we take her to agility classes :)
