Let me preface by saying I think this is very individual to the child.
Laurel is 2.5 Her main chore is putting away her toys when done with them. And she does need some help. Sometimes she will make her bed, but I don't require it. Only Dora is required to make her bed at the moment, and she is 6. Arwyn will do it when reminded, and right now she is all about doing what Dora does. If she is home alone with me, usually after school drop off, she helps me make bake.
All 3 kids, including Laurel, also take turns helping me walk Shep in the evenings. They hold his poop bag after I clean it up. And when we get back they feed him, then put him in his crate and give him a cookie.
I have only recently been instituting specific chores. It really depended on what I could see they were really capable of. This summer I plan to start teaching them to help me clean house. I fully accept that for a while the house will get really wet, but not really clean. I will continue to use my cleaning ladies until we have it down
