For some reason I cannot teach my 9 month old shih tau to roll over. I can get him in a lay down position but as soon as I move my hand to get him to roll over, the stands up. any suggestions?
he knows how to sit, jump, speak, leave it, stay, come, kiss, paw, lay down and spin.

For my dogs, what worked was after getting them in the down position I gently rolled them onto their back. Naturally, they would roll over to get back into position. Every time I did that I gave them a treat. Both picked up on what I wanted VERY quickly. Moving my hand to try to guide them into a roll did not work for either of my dogs, so just got to find which technique works best for yours.

Good Luck!
