Teaching a dog to 'roll over ' is a fun and easy trick that can be fun for both you and your dog. Remember, keep trick training light, fun, and fast.

 

How to Teach Your Dog to Roll Over

  • Start with your dog in a down position.
  • Hold a treat in front of his nose.
  • When he takes notice, move the food away from his mouth, so he cannot snatch it.
  • Move it down his body past his front leg and back over his lying body.
  • His head will follow the food morsel, forcing him to roll over in order to get it.
  • When he completes this action, give him the food and praise him.
  • You will need to do this several times until he learns that roll over is something you enjoy him doing.
  • This might require returning later to practice the trick every time, since praise and food treats tend to get a dog excited and moving around.

    just be careful not to do this right after feeding as too much rolling over can get their stomach twisted...
