Teach your Dog to Roll Over and Build on Your Bond

Trust

Make sure a calm and positive environment. Begin by practicing basic commands to establish a foundation of trust between you and your pup.

Basics

Start with the basics. Ensure your dog is comfortable with commands like "sit" and "lie down." These foundational commands set the stage for teaching the playful.

Lureand Reward

Hold a treat close to your dog's nose, move it in a circular motion, and say "roll over." Gradually guide your dog into the rolling position. Reward and praise when they follow through.

Repetition

Consistent repetition is key. Practice the roll-over command in short sessions, rewarding successful attempts. 

Patience

Patience is essential in dog training. If your dog struggles or seems disinterested, remain patient. Offer encouragement and positive reinforcement. 

Playful Bonding

Incorporate toys, happy tones, and plenty of praise. This creates a positive association with the roll-over trick, making it a joyful interaction for both you and your dog.

Gradual Progress

If your dog makes partial rolls or hesitates initially, acknowledge their effort. Positive reinforcement encourages continuous improvement, making the learning process enjoyable.
