There are many ways to teach your dog to roll over, but one of the most popular is to use a food lure. First, get your dog to sit. Once your dog is sitting, hold a piece of food close to your dog’s nose and slowly move it over your dog’s head. As your dog follows the food with his nose, he will naturally be learning the roll. But make sure you reward him with the food for his good behavior!

How to Teach Your Dog to Roll Over:

Here are the step-by-step Guide:

Step 1- Ask your dog to perform a “down” position

Ask your dog to perform a “down” position, using delicious treats to lure him into the “down” position.

Have someone move toward your dog and touch his back, just behind his shoulders. If your dog moves, let him know “too far” (in a happy voice) and then have him perform another “down” position.

Repeat this exercise several times until you are certain that your dog will not move when someone comes near him.

Step 2- Kneel beside your dog and hold a small

Kneeling beside your dog and holding a small, yummy treat to the side of their head near their nose is a great way to get them to focus on you. This is called a “focus cue” and can be used to get your dog’s attention before giving them a command.

Step 3- Move your hand from their nose toward their shoulder

Gently guide your hand from their nose to their shoulder, coaxing them to roll onto their side.

Step 4- Try this several times and praise him

Try this a few times and praise and treat each time they follow the treat and lie flat on their side with their head on the floor. Now you have a new way to use the word down.

Step 5- Continue hand movement with a treat

Move your hand once again from their shoulder to their backbone. This time, as they roll over, give them a treat on the other side. Keep doing this until they get used to the idea that if they follow your hand with their eyes, they will get a reward. They will soon learn to roll over that if they pay attention to what you are doing, they will receive a treat.
