Default Teaching Roll Over

... my chi doesn't seem interested. Doing the whole "treat from elbow to ribcage" thing... and I think she's the personality who doesn't particularly like being on her back.

Anyone have any ideas? Or should I just omit "roll over"? She knows plenty of other stuff! Thanks!

How I taught ninja was id have him lay down and then hed roll over enough that he wasnt quite on his back everytime he did it I said ROLLOVER and eventually I got him to roll all the way and now he does it from a sit position.

I taught Nova using the lure with a treat method, and Kerri just liked to roll on her back as a puppy so I taught her by associating the word with the action when I caught her doing it. Unfortunately Copley does not like to roll around and was only confused by the treat method so I gave up! My dogs know lots of tricks, and Nova is trained with the clicker for tricks so we are up to, many, many behaviors with her at this point. With so many other options of thing to teach I just sort of gave up on the roll over with Copley.

If anyone has another method though- I am all ears!

some dogs dislike the roll on the back thing. Very submissive posture. Our sheltie did this trick willingly til she was about a year old. Suddenly she quit! Never has done it again. Wierd!
