    99 - Have him roll over

    99 - Have him roll over

    This is a fun exercise that’s easy to add at this stage as it builds on skills your dog should already have.

    1. With your dog in a down position, encourage him to target your hand back over his shoulders. This will help him to begin to roll. Click and treat. Repeat a few times until he gains conidence. If he is reluctant or unsure, have a treat in the target hand to give further encouragement the first few times.

    2. Repeat but withhold the click and move your hand further over his body so he is encouraged to roll right over. Click and drop the treat on the side he is rolling towards.

    3. Repeat until he rolls conidently following the visual cue then begin to attach a verbal cue and reward on completion.

    Oz follows the hand target towards his shoulder and begins to roll over
