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.

Step 1:  

Have a treat in your hand and put it to your dog’s nose, then lure your dog into a down and treat. 

Step 2:  

With a treat to the dog’s nose, lure your dog so they lift head and shift their weight to the side. Give treat. 

Step 3: 

Lure the dog’s head further over and treat. 

Step 4: 

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. 

Step 5: 

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.
