How many tricks does Krypto know?

I never thought of this, then I saw a youtube collection of videos where a dog performed tricks and its owner had counted how many it could do. I think they were about 80. I thought “wow!”, and then I saw the videos, and realized that even a recall counts as a trick. I guess it is. It is something we teach our dogs so it must count.

So I decided to count how many Krypto knows. I hope I will not forget any.

    Wow, that’s even a lot MORE tricks! Krytpo has quite the skill set there!

    I love how the classic “roll over” is the last one on the list 🙂

    It’s the last one we have been working on 🙂 And I allow him to roll over only on the bed, I am afraid he would hurt his back on the ceramic or hardwood floors 🙂

    I’m hoping you’ll be able to add skateboarding after his stay with me. 😉
