Question Teaching a Dog to "take it"?

I am trying to train my dog to "take it", but I am not sure how to do it.She does not like or use toys, so I can't have her hold those. I have also tried to rub something in Peanut Butter for her to take, but she winds up licking it instead. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can teach her? Thanks!

Question Have U used a marker or clicker B4?



how old is she? - dogs who aren't keen on toy-play can be taught to play, but the younger they are, the easier that is. A 6-YO dog with zero interest in any object that's not a chew-toy will be a tougher sell than a 2-YO.

Are U teaching 'take it' as a future component of Fetch / give? - will she chase objects, such as a flung bumper? Or just watch them go, then turn to some other activity?

here are 2 options -

Perhaps teaching your dog the names of his/her toys will,illicit the behavior you're looking for... I've taught one of my Heeler's the names of his toys. As a part of that he's started taking the toy I've asked for and throwing it on the floor. Now this might be a Heeler thing, throwing stuff around... They're the only dogs I've had that throw their toys around and food bowls at me, lol.
