PostSubject: Good Dog Citizen Scheme   Mon 21 Jun 2010, 3:01 pm

Our homework on Friday was to get your dog to roll over, yeah right!

So off we went home, was late but whilst she was reasonably quiet, I started to practice after 5 mins we sort of halfway there.

Saturday morning, again picked up a couple of treats and we got to the stage where she went halfway so i slightly tipped her body to the point of no return and she flopped over

Saturday afternoon, repeat and repeat for about 10 mins if that

Saurday eve, tried again and my goodness she got it, lots of treats and praise

At flyball was chatting about it and someone said go on then get her to do it, i thought here we go she wont, and blow me down she did

This morning, 5 mins again and ow she does it from sit, todown to roll over ITS ACE

Cant wait for Friday, she either will or wont :-)

As long as doggie is laid flat on tummy and slightly to one side, I use liver cake or cocktail sausages, make sure you kneel behind his/her back and bring the treat over their shoulder to their spine. Make sure you have left enough room for them to roll over. Georgie was not quite sure as when i got her half way she flipped back. so I knelt in front of her and as she got halfway, my are sligtly pushed her foreleg over and then I treated immediately, now she does it without the help.

I have always done her training lots of short 5 min bursts seems to work

I've not tried that one, I could try it on Ruby later this week, she won't be going out for walkies for a week or so and it will help keep her brain occupied. Got any more you can teach to a dog who's only allowed to use 3 legs? lol!

Awwww Wll Done Georgie & Mum lol xx

Diesel wouldn't roll over - the poor trainer was pulling her hair out and said she has never known it - whereas Rocco will do it and did from about the 10th attempt -

Diesel is stubborn though - he should have been an English Bull lol xx

Are you doing Bronze - Silver or Gold xx
