Tips for a successful grass roll

Today I would like to share with you the key component in achieving a successful grass roll. It's actually very simple: maximum grass distribution.

It sounds easy, but takes a lot of practice to achieve. Many a pup will rush through the process and not get an even coat of grass throughout their whole body. This of course, will lead to patches of fur that are not coated with a good amount of grassy smells, premature grass shedding, and most importantly, will not provide you with enough grass blades to bring into the house.

In order to avoid this terrible scenario you must make sure to roll back and forth giving all sides a good amount of grass time, try different angles and body contortions to get those hard to reach spots, and most importantly, take your time. There is no rush, no matter what your mom says, or how hard she pulls on the leash. If you need to roll around down there for a good five minutes, than that's just what needs to be done.

Also, remember, good grass rolling is an art form and can only be perfected after a lot of practice and a lot of dedication. Don't be discouraged just because at a mere 1 year of age I am a master grass roller. My kind of genius is rare and you shouldn't feel pressured to reach my dizzying heights of awesomeness. Give yourself time and soon enough you'll be grass rolling with the best of us.

As an added bonus for being blog friends I am posting up a series of educational images that you can study at your own pace and in the privacy of your own grassy spot. Also,don't forget to have fun out there!


  1. Fantastic step-by-step instructions!!

  2. Pawsome instructions! Thanks for the tips & how-tos!
    Once this dang snow has gone - and we can feel the warm grass under our paws - we will definately put your lessons to good use!

  3. oh yes, wonderful how-to pictures. You guys should write a book, "everything a good pup should know and some things their parents don't want them to know!" Also, since we live in VA I might just practice this much needed skill...in the snow! Fun times ahead!

  4. Dottie you are a master! We will practice our techniques as soon as we see some grass here.
