Doesn't Play Fetch!
My dog Diego is working on heeling right now, so I'm playing fetch to get his energy out since our trainer said not to walk him. I just emailed her asking a few questions about his problem with fetch. It's like when I throw his ball, he doesn't come back, he runs somewhere else and lies down with it. Once I walk up to him to grab it he snatches it really quick, like he's trying to play a game. He wags his tail, so it's obviously fun to him. Any ideas on how I can teach him to come to me and drop his ball for me? Should I teach him the drop command? Or will that overwhelm him since I'm already working on heeling? Help!
Here's a picture... lol, it looks like he's just waiting for my hand to reach down so he can snatch it.
