    I'm teaching my dog to play dead, fall on your back style. The way I'm teaching him is telling him to go into a sit up position then grabbing his paws and leading him down. He's understanding it the only problem is he will only do it when I grab his paws. Does anyone have any other ideas to teach this trick?

    THIS is the trick i ask for most often,
    every time it rains outside.

    My cue is "bang!" with pointed finger to be the gun,
    and Buddy will fall down, roll onto his back, and put all 4 feet up in the air.
    makes it very easy to clean those paws when he comes back into the house...

    yes, i barely get a chance to "shoot my finger" and say bang,
    as soon as i lift up the towel we keep by the door on rainy days,
    my dog almost automatically falls over and holds all 4 paws up in the air!!:ROFLMAO:

    Ha I love how the dog in the video gives a grunting bark as she's "shot" :)
