Make sure to let your pet know a crate is their home initially. Feed your dog inside the crate with the door open. They'll build a positive view of the crate this way.

It is not difficult to teach a dog how to roll over, and having some treats on hand makes it easier. The dog has to lay down first. Next, you must hold one treat close to the floor off to one side of their head and slowly bring it up and over the dog's head to the opposite side. This will cause your dog to use their nose to follow the treat. As a result, your dog will roll over. Be sure to say ROLL OVER as your dog is rolling. Eventually, he will learn to perform the trick upon command. It may take some time for your dog to perfect the trick, but it's a popular move and one that is sure to impress others.

Just be careful that you do not allow too much freedom, too quickly, as this can quickly derail your hard work and training.
It's surprising for many people to know that training your dog is never as time consuming, difficult, or stressful as people think. The key is having the right attitude, a lot of patience and enough discipline to follow through. Successful dog training is achieved by people who have these three traits.
