Learn how to train your dog to roll over in three easy steps! With dog treats, patience, and a little bit of work your dog will be trained in no time.
1 Teach your dog to lie down. You can train your dog to lie down by placing him/her in the sitting position. Then say "down" and bring the treat towards the floor to get the dog to follow. If your dog does not understand, you can help things along by gently pushing the dog towards the floor. When your dog lies down, praise him/her and offer the treat immediately. Work with your dog until he/she can lie down on command and stay in that position.
2 When your dog is on the ground, put the treat around the back of the dog's neck. Gently push on one of the dog's shoulders to push him/her into rolling over towards the treat. While you do this, say the command "roll over." Your dog will roll to try and get the treat. Be sure to give him/her the treat when the roll is completed.
3 Work with your dog for 5-10 minutes a day on the new command, and make sure to keep it fun. When your dog successfully rolls over for a treat, begin using the command without a treat. Be sure to offer your dog positive reinforcement so that completing a command is fun and rewarding.
