Once your Labrador Retriever has some basic obedience commands down and is doing them on a regular basis, you can begin to train him some fun tricks like how to roll over.
Rolling over is a trick that will get attention. Think about all the cute things your Labrador Retriever puppy can do once he knows how to roll over. Amuse your guests by having them ask your dog to roll over You can have your little guy roll over and play dead, then put him in the local theater program. After you teach your little guy to roll over you can give him a blanket and train him to tuck himself in.
This is an incredibly playful trick and is limitless in the things you can build upon once your puppy knows this particular command.
Training your Labrador Retriever puppy to roll over is going to require a commitment of your time as well as an understanding of how this trick plays out with other tasks your little guy already knows how to do, such as 'sit' and 'down'. Make sure your puppy already has those basic obedience commands well understood before you start training the 'roll over' command so you are not having to stop and train him the basics.
There are few ways to teach your puppy to roll over. You can lure him, you can gently guide him, and you can entice him. Whichever method you choose, be sure you remain consistent and train this trick on a regular basis, so your puppy isn't allowed to forget it.
You will need some quiet distraction-free training time. Puppies are generally excited, highly energetic, and easily distracted. Don't count on having your puppy's attention for a long time. Schedule your training sessions to be short and simple but do them often enough so your puppy remembers and can build from his last session. Consider using different treats than you normally give your Lab pup. These high-value treats will encourage him to work harder and pay attention as he learns to roll over.
