Every canine needs to know how to "play dead" and roll over! In this video I'll offer your the most comprehensive lesson I ever have on this subject!

  1. I know this has nothing to do with this video but you should do a video of how to teach your dog to stop humping

  2. Great Video!!! This was to be the next trick on my puppy’s bucket list! LOL! It’s always a good reminder to show patience, love and connection with your puppy or dog. Thanks, Zak. Jacob is stunningly handsome

    • +Joy Victory Hello there! Have you heard about – sodandar awesome dog training (Have a quick look on Google cant remember the place now)? I’ve heard some super things about it and my brother in laws wife got a video course that they give-away with it.

  3. I like the improved video quality and editing! So professional. (Still loving the content too of course!) Thanks Zak.

  4. Awesome!
    But if I try to feed my Rottweiler like that, he’ll bite my fingers off. Are there any tricks to cure that?

  5. I tried this but my dog just got up, jumped on me, and got the treat

      +Sophia piñeros how did it work?

    • Sameeee. Mine’s too excited for the treat, it’s impossible!

    • I’d recommend clicker training for anyone who is having issues, keep your treats in a little pouch and use the clicker instead. There is a few videos on how to clicker train on Zaks’ channel if you’re interested. If you cannot order a clicker, then try a ball point pen.

      If you are unable to do any of these, be more resilient and do not let them get the treat, even if they start biting- keep your hand bawled up in a ball so that they cannot get the treat. If you retreat too easily, the dog will be encouraged by that and continue to do it so they get more.

    I love your videos, but you should really support locally owned small pet stores. sites like Pet Flow and and stores like Petco and Petsmart are putting us out of business!

    What if you have already taught your dog “Roll Over” but they don’t know “Bang” or “Play Dead” yet

    • Even better! Just let your dog roll over, but ask him/her to stay while they’re rolling over! 🙂

  10. that’s how i trained my dog how to roll over. whenever we play fetch, i ask her to do a trick before i throw the ball, so she practiced it a lot, and now anytime she wants anything she throws herself into a roll. sometimes if it doesn’t work, she just keeps rolling. she met a dog the other day, wanted to play with her, so she started rolling around. so ridiculous.

    thanks for video! i’m gonna work with her on play dead today 🙂

    I taught my dog to play dead by teaching him roll over then using his stay command while rolled over then once he learnt that I interchanged it for play dead. he is perfect at it now. Because my family got the dog off my younger step brothers family because of housing issues my younger brother, had no training at all no sit no stay nothing but he was at least 2 and a half years old it was hard but now he can high five, shake sit, stay, heel, come, eye contact, fetch, hug, roll over and play dead whose say you can’t teach a old dog new tricks he is now about 3 and a half.

  12. About 1:48 to skip the god damn commercials.

  13. Ow my iPad fell on my nose

  14. At 6:21 he almost got his face bitten off lol

  15. @6:21 why did the dog suddenly merely bite him?

      I know it’s the holidays (at least it is in the UK) but shouldn’t you be revising or something?

      Because he is getting too excited and needs a break from learning. That’s why he took Jacob out to burn off some of that energy so he can refocus and get back to work!

      There’s a reason that they’re illegal in the UK, Americans clearly don’t have the mental capacity to understand that a ban on them is necessary if you don’t want children mutilated by dogs bred specifically for fighting.

  16. Why am I watching this? I don’t even have a dog 😅

  17. I dont think that will work with my papillon gizmo.. he lays down then pops back up.. when I try to lure him he turns his head from one side to the other then jumps up and stands in front of me again.

  18. The best part of the Video was when Jacob tried to bite Zaks face off

  19. so awesome
