Teach your dog to roll over with this simple dog training tip. This tip was taken from the Dog Training Planner.
Outcome: Dog Learns to Roll Over
This is a cute trick that your dog can show off to your friends. You will need plenty of treats and a clicker to teach your dog to roll over. Remember to be consistent when training your dog and ensure that you have good timing when clicking and rewarding.
Have a treat in your hand and put it to your dog’s nose, then lure your dog into a down and treat.
With a treat to the dog’s nose, lure your dog so they lift head and shift their weight to the side. Give treat.
Lure the dog’s head further over and treat.
Keep luring the dog over with the treat, once they have rolled onto their other side, treat, but make sure you toss the treat a little away from them so they have to fully roll over to get it.
Keep practising and reducing how many treats you give, eventually your dog will do the movement in one motion and you can add the verbal command ‘roll over’
Note: This trick may take a long time, but keep practicing and use high value treats for the best results. If your dog prefers to learn with a toy – listen to your dog.
