We've been getting Koch to do it (just started on Wednesday) - would "Roll right" and "roll left" be too difficult to each (to get her to roll one way or the other)? I mean, would the commands be too similar to one another?

Re: Rollover?

It would probably be easier to teach "roll over" and then a totally different command like "other way" or "unwind." Renji can do one direction just fine, to the left, but when we try the other way his brain hits a wall. I hope Koch has better luck!
