  1. Gentle Fetching

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a border collie who knows how to fetch and I would like to teach her to fetch ping pong balls, but every time she gets a hold of one she stalks off and instantly crunches it between her teeth. Even when she is close to me I cannot seem to get her to be gentle when she is fetching things...
  2. Won't retrieve discs at the dog park

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have a seven-month-old Australian Shepherd/Poodle mix (F1) and things are going great. She needs a ton of exercise, so I take her to the dog park nearly everyday, sometimes twice. As long as I do this, she is a breeze to train. One thing is confounding me though. I have a personal goal of...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have an australian cattle dog mix, I have had him for about a year now. Every day i play fetch with him 2-4 times a day so he is not hyper and chewing up furniture in the house, and it is also probably his favorite thing to do. he is obsessed with the ball. But now all of the sudden he seems...
  4. Alternative Way Of Training Fetch - For those who are struggling

    Dog Training and Behavior
    *POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT TRAINING TIP, NOT A QUESTION* So I picked up a poodle puppy and found myself really having a hard time training him to hold an object. For a start, he wasn't interested unless it was on the ground, no matter what I did, and he would shake it the second it was in his...
  5. Not so interested in Fetch play

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I don't know if this is a phase, or she's just one of those dogs that doesn't care for fetch play (I've had at least one of those). Her prey drive is pretty strong (chases bugs and geckos without fail), and she does pretty well on the first two or three tries. But after that, even when she knows...
  6. Training my dog how to play

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi guys, A month ago, we adopted a 3 year old Jack Russell from a rescue, and we need help teaching him games. First of all, he seems interested in squeaky toys. His reaction is strange: as soon as he hears the squeak, his ears go up and his head turns. Then, he starts making a very quiet...

  8. my dog won't play fetch

    General Dog Discussion
    My dog was a rescue, and I got him when he was 3 years old. He does not put anything in his mouth which is good in some ways, but that includes toys. He will not play fetch. He almost does, but I cannot figure out how to move on from where we are. If I put a blanket on the couch, sit next to...
  9. My dog won't play with toys

    General Dog Discussion
    Hello! My dog, Alley, is 1.5 years old and I adopted her when she was 5 months old. At first, she really didn't show any interest in toys but eventually liked to chew them. (She didn't actually start ripping them apart until I moved back with my parents and their dog). Anyway, I can't get her...
  10. Fetch and Hip Dysplasia

    Dog Health
    Our dog has some mild hip dysplasia in his right rear leg. Our vet told us that we should avoid playing fetch with him to prevent exacerbating it. He is an active 1 3/4 year old lab mix and he loves to play fetch. I was just wondering if anyone else had heard this because I haven't read anything...
  11. Playing Fetch...Without the Fetch

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My two Miniature Schnauzers both love chasing after a toy. They'll pick it up, shake it a few times, and then run off in the opposite direction, never once bringing the toy back to me, despite my numerous attempts to call their names and lure them with treats. It makes playing frisbee a bit of...

  13. My dog won't play with balls. HELP!!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, My dog wont play with balls, or any other kind of rubber, hard, bouncy or squeeky toy. She plays with soft toys like teddy bears, but she rippes them apart and pulls out all the stuffing, and i am scared this will incourage her to chase other animals.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey there! I have a 9 month old shepherd mix, who I adopted about 3 weeks ago from the pound. She's ridiculously smart and sweet, but she does this funny thing with fetch where she'll chase what I throw, tap it with her nose and run back all pants and wags. She loves to run so I think fetch...
