Five months is still very young, and Brie's personality is still developing. I wouldn't worry that she has never voluntarily rolled over for you -- I don't think either of our two did as puppies, and now Flora only does on rare occasions when she expects a belly rub. I don't think Lucy ever has ever rolled onto her back volutarily for us.

Keep up the work establishing yourselves as pack leaders, and things should work out. One exercise that we found helpful was one for handling all parts of your dog's body. Make sure Brie accepts you touching her anywhere, and running your hands all over her. This will make vet visits, baths, toenail clipping, and teeth brushing much easier in the future.

As for the dog park issue, I think the other dogs will put her in her place when she becomes a problem. Being young, she gets extra leeway right now. We don't have a dog park, so I'll be glad to hear what others have to say.
