Tibbe does all the routine tricks you mentioned plus a few I've taught him. Training is just about his main thing in life after eating!!! He will MAKE me have a training session, standing in front of me on the den floor and growling and grousing as I ask him his list of "what do you want?" questions and when I get to "do you want to do Training?", he will rollover and start going in circles, dog laughing and very very very happy. So, I get his little tin of treats and we train until his excitement starts to wane. I can tell when it's time to stop, he starts to do the trick more slowly. Usually he does them SO fast, so excited. Then we have a big, big love and praise session and I look into his eyes and tell him how proud I am of him. He won't steadily look back at me as they usually won't due to doggie protocol and their rules, etc., but he does enjoy the moments of praise.
He was so wild when I first got him, training Tibbe and getting him into "working" was one of the things that helped him gain impulse control, settled him down and formed a great bond between us. Now he insists on his training several times a day. Sorry I got him started in a way!!!! (just kidding )

Xena knows how to sit, shake, high five, lay down, go to her bed, go to her couch, and I am trying to teach her to 'leave it' with treats. She is doing very well with that. She loves training. The second she sees me reach for the treat bag she gets excited and sits in front of me, even waves her little paw at me.
My Pamapoo Trixie knows the same tricks as Xena except for 'leave it'. She does know how to stay as well. I started training Xena when she was around 6 weeks old and I believe Trixie was 8 weeks. Now they're 5 and 6 months old. Trixie catches on faster than Xena. It took Xena three sessions to understand sit, it was her first lessons. And it took me like two weeks to get her to comprehend lay down, when her front went down her little bottom went up. I wasn't sure she would ever get it >.<
