The Bossi-Poo has inherited the Poodle's smarts and willingness to pick up tricks. These dogs are also food-motivated making it even easier to train your pup to do advanced tricks. They also love to show off and get praise for their efforts, so training them to roll over is a perfect activity for Bossi-Poos. You don't need much to teach your dog to roll over. Just find a training treat that they love, and practice before breakfast and dinner for 15 minutes. Teaching your dog to roll over is perfect to do, no matter the weather.
Step
1
Down
The first step is to make sure your Bossi-Poo knows the "down" command. Ask them to sit and hold a treat right in front of their nose. Slowly bring the treat down to the floor, making sure they are following the treat. When they are in a down position, tell them good job and give them the treat. Practice until they can get into a down on command.
Step
2
Tummy up
The next step is to get them to lie on their back with their tummy up. Take another treat and, while they are in the down position, move it from in front of their nose and over their shoulder. They should lie on their side. Keep moving the treat until they are laying on their back. Give them the treat and rub their tummy.
Step
3
All the way over
This next step can sometimes be the hardest. You need to get your Bossi-Poo to flip from their back to the other side to complete the roll. Encourage them with treats on the other side. You can even give their legs a little push to guide them over. Once your dog can do all three movements, put them together for a full roll over.

Activity description
Activities for Bossi-Poos need to take into account their social side and need to interact with other dogs. Even if you already own a few other furry playmates for your pup, they can really benefit from regular playtime with other dogs. If you live in a city, you can easily find a number of MeetUps based on small dogs. There are likely other owners who also want their dogs to meet other small pups to learn social skills from and play. These MeetUps don't cost any money, but may quickly become your favorite activity of the week. As long as the weather is nice, you'll always have someone to play with at a small dog MeetUp event.
Step
1
Find an event
The first step is to find a small dog MeetUp near you. You can check online for MeetUp established groups, look on Craig's List or ask at your local pet store. If you don't find any listings, you can make your own to gather other small dog owners. Chat at the dog park with owners of other tiny pooches and get a group started.
Step
2
First meeting
When you head to the first meeting, be prepared for anything. If might take your dog a little while to warm up to the group, or they may jump right in and start playing. Make sure you have a poop bag to pick up any messes. Let your Bossi-Poo meet other dogs without interference, and don't worry if they growl playfully or bark at first. Watch them from afar and let them figure out the other dog's cues.
Step
3
Schedule it
Take some time to schedule in a small dog MeetUp each week. Your Bossi-Poo will love playing with their new friends and will learn quite a lot from interacting with other dogs on a regular basis. Not to mention, they will tire themselves out running and playing non-stop for an hour.

Activity description
Your Bossi-Poo loves to show off and is smart as a whip. Teaching your dog tricks you can put together into a routine will be a fun way to bond together, work on obedience and delayed gratification, and let your pup show off for friends and family. Playing circus is one of the most fun activities for Bossi-Poos. It doesn't take much besides tasty dog treats, a few props, and a cute outfit for your dog to wear when it's show time. Your friends and family will just love it when the puppy circus comes to town, and your dog will soak up all the applause.
Step
1
Pick your tricks
The first step is to decide which tricks you want to work on first. Bossi-Poos are smart and pick up tricks easily, but it's a good idea to start with easier tricks before you move on to harder tricks. You can learn how to work together and read each other's cues on the easier tricks. This will make the harder tricks go much more smoothly.
Step
2
Practice makes perfect
When you have a few tricks picked out, it's time to practice with your dog. Carve out at least 15 minutes each day to work on each trick. Make sure you don't over-practice. Even the most attentive dogs will get bored after a half hour. Work on each trick until your dog can perform it flawlessly, then move on to the next.
Step
3
Show time
When your dog has mastered four or five tricks, you are ready for a show. Practice doing the tricks in the same sequence, so your dog is ready when there is an audience. Schedule a showing with friends and family or plan to make your debut at the next get together. Dress up your pup and let them show off! Your dog will love all the attention from their adoring fans!
