My big dog (probably mostly Giant Schnauzer) has developed stiffness in his back end that makes certain positions somewhat uncomfortable for him - he'd rather lay down than sit, for example, and it'd be mean to ask him to sit up to beg. So I just don't ask for such commands unless I have a really good reason to.

From your pic it looks like both your dogs are pretty big, which means that at age 5+, they might be starting to feel those aches and pains of middle age. It's possible that rolling over just doesn't feel great anymore, even if there's nothing WRONG wrong.

Sure. They're cuties, by the way.

I'm just thinking...I'm heading into middle age myself, and you'd have to either scare me or offer me a very nice bribe to make me, say, do ten burpees, lol. And that's with me knowing the value of exercise.
