This is a fun trick that often makes dogs struggle because they are uncomfortable rolling on their back.
That’s why we will reward along the way: for turning the head, for a quarter turn, for a half turn etc.
You will reach your goal much faster than if you insist that your dog rolls over all the way from the beginning.
