Despite their small stature, Pomeranians are full of life and energy. In fact, it is often your young children who collapse to sleep before your little pal Fizzy does. The only problem is, that you don’t know what to do with all his extra energy. Having said that, one idea has come to mind, and that’s training him to roll over. You’ve already taught him a range of basic commands, such as ‘sit’ and ‘wait’, so why not start teaching Fizzy some fun tricks too?
Training your Pomeranian to roll over is good for him. It makes for a fantastic way to mentally stimulate him and also means you can get them working for those mouth-watering treats they’re always after. This type of obedience training will also set the groundwork for more advanced commands later down the line and makes for a great way to bond with your little canine pal.
Thankfully, training your Pomeranian to roll over is nice and straightforward. You will need to take it slow at the beginning while you convey what it is you want them to do. But once they understand that, you just need to reinforce training with treats and toys. The trick is to make it feel like one big game. So finding the right incentive will make a big difference.
If Fizzy is just a puppy then he should be at his most receptive. As a result, your Pomeranian could be rolling over in just a couple of days. But if they’re older, stubborn and not interested in following instructions, then you may need a couple of weeks. If you get training right you’ve got yourself a guaranteed way to get guests giggling. You can also make Fizzy work for his food by performing tricks first.
Before you can start training, you will need to make sure you have a few bits. A generous supply of delicious treats will be needed. Alternatively, you can break your Pom's favorite food into small pieces. Toys and a clicker will also be required for one of the methods below.
Set aside just 5 to 10 minutes each day for training. Use a large room away from any TVs or anything that may get broken.
Apart from that, you just need enthusiasm and a positive attitude, then work can begin!
