When Huggie first came to live with us, the first thing he would do when greeting ANYONE was to roll over on his back, submitting with a belly exposure. Our first goal to prepare him for the show ring was to de-bellyroll him, building his confidence. He used to actually do it when I would try to pick him up to place him on the table in the ring! I trained him to stop the roll and stand at attention to be picked up while at shows. But at home? That’s a totally different story!
If he is lounging on the couch and you come up on him, the bellyroll is almost instant. Of course, his adorableness instantly inspired the requested belly RUB. You just cannot help it!
