Here's Bonnie doing a 'turn around'.

 

 

 

 Turn Around

Start by having your dog stand up facing you. Let your dog see a treat in your hand. Stand still and say, "Turn around." Lead the dog's nose around with the treat so he walks in a circle. When he comes back to where he's facing you again, say, "Good dog!" and give him the treat.

 

  TIP:
After some practice, hold the treat in front of you so your dog can see it and say, "Turn around," but don't lead his nose. See if he is ready to turn around by himself and get the treat. Pretty soon, he will twirl around faster than you can say 'Lassie!"
