How to Teach Your Dog to Roll Over

 Right position

The first step is to get your dog in the right position. Have your dog sit or lie down, and then place a treat in front of their nose.

Use a treat to lure 

Slowly move the treat over your dog's head and towards their shoulder.

Reward the behavior

Soon as your dog rolls over, mark the behavior with a clear and consistent sound, such as a click or a "yes!". 

Repeat the steps

Repeat steps 2 and 3 several times, until your dog is reliably rolling over when you lure them with the treat.

Start to fade the lure

Once your dog is reliably rolling over, you can start to fade the lure.

Be patient and consistent

 It takes time and patience to train a dog to roll over.

Have fun!

Training your dog to roll over should be a fun experience for both of you.
