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 a challenge, considering that they go bounding across the yard as fast as they can, carrying the frisbee as far away as possible. I'm not sure how to convince them to retrieve the toy, and was wondering if anyone could provide some suggestions.

Use two frisbees (or balls, or whatever) and start close. Throw the one like 5 feet away and as soon as they pick it up and glance toward you, show and throw the second.

They want to play more than they want treats, so use more play/chase itself as the reward for dropping it again.
