VIDEO: How To Teach Any Dog To FETCH

Dogs love to please and play with their owners as if it were naturally embedded in their genes. They are almost never in short supply of sky-high enthusiasm and energy. And what better way to burn off some pent-up energy than to play a fun game of fetch. Although it may seem to the uninitiated as merely throwing a ball or toy and commanding your dog to chase and retrieve it for you, a game of fetch is a healthy activity that lets out the instinctive predatory drive of dogs. More than just toning your dog’s muscles and keeping his physique at optimum, playing fetch also fortifies the bond a dog and his human companion should share. It’s a great way to solidify that trust and friendship while keeping things fun and far from boring.

Some dogs are instinctive retrievers that will drop an object at your feet right off the bat, but many don’t. Most dogs need guidance for them to learn the trick or to refine their fetching skills. Some will even just give a rather puzzled expression and do nothing when a ball is thrown. These are the ones that are the focus of this tutorial video from Training Positive that we found.

If speech bubbles similar to those in comics would be drawn from these dogs’ heads, “Why does he keep throwing that ball?” would seem to be the perfect script. Others on the other hand (we’ve all known this, I’m sure) chase and catch the thrown ball but have no plan to bring it back – even when called!

Before you proceed with training your dog how to fetch, you should know what to expect and what constitutes an acceptable fetching behavior. You can use a stick or toys that are of your dog’s preference such as a tennis ball, Frisbee, or rubber bumper. Here’s the video for a helpful guide on the basics of fetch training:
