How to Play Fetch with Puppy
Puppies that need to be trained to fetch will need an instinctual trigger to chase and a motivator to return. Encourage your pet to go after something that he likes, for eg. his favorite dog toy like a kong stick or a dog chews or any puppy chew toys. Once the puppy chases it and gets it, encourage him to come back for a more attractive motivator like a dog training treat in exchange for the dog toy. Slowly but surely, your pooch will learn to fetch a ball, a stick, and even learn to catch a frisbee. In no time, puppy fetch training will seem like a cakewalk to you!
