Teaching a dog to roll over onto its side is not only a nice trick, but is useful for
grooming, veterinary examinations or for nail clipping. Training a dog to roll over like any form of dog training should be fun for the owner and dog and learning to train
dog to play dead is one of the funniest dog tricks!

1. Hold a food treat firmly in your hand and show this to your dog and hold it near its
nose, then gently place your dog into the down position and kneel down beside it.
Whilst my four legged companion sat beside me I wrote a book which tells the story of
The Drummer Boy.
This novel is about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty's Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

2. Keep firm hold of the food treat and encourage your dog to follow the treat aiming
for it to follow through to its elbow - the dog's hindquarters should start to roll over.
3.Then slowly move the food treat towards the shoulder that is closest to you - your dog
should now be fully rolled over onto its side.
4. Move the hand with the food treat towards the ground until your dog's head rests flat
on the floor. Your dog should now be fully on its side with its head flat. Immediately give
the food treat to your dog and say the words you wish to use for this roll over and play dead command, eg flat,
dead, play dead.
5. Repeat the roll over and play dead exercise several times a day until your dog learns the actions, gradually weaning
it from the food treat.
