Dog Body Language-Rolling Over

When your dog rolls over on her back with her belly exposed and her legs in the air, she's being submissive. If done in front of another dog, she's saying, "You're the boss and I don't want to fight." When your dog rolls over for you, it could have more than one meaning. If done in anticipation of a scolding, it means, "I don't know how to please you and I'm afraid you're angry. Please accept my apology." Or she may be trying to avoid something she doesn't want to do. More often, rolling over is a sign that your dog is happy, trusts you and has a pleasant, submissive nature. It just means, "Please pet my belly."
