Dog Trick Thursday!

Today is Thursday, and that means Dog Trick Thursday! A trick that is fun to teach your dog, but takes some time to practice is “roll over”.

Start by getting your dog in the “down” position. Once he is down, hold a treat in one hand, and with the other, gently push him to his side. When he is laying on his side, hold the treat near his nose, and move your hand to the side so his head follows. Where his nose goes, his body will follow. When he started to roll onto his back say “roll over” and give him the treat when he gets to his side.

This is a trick that takes some dedicated practice, but once your dog learns it, it is a fun trick to show off. Winnie and Phinn love “roll over” so much, we often find them rolling around in the yard by themselves!

Until next time…
