    Force Fetch will/should solve the problem. And I highly recommend finding someone in your area to help you. I would not do it yourself the first few times (dogs). There are a lot of people in...
  2. How many of us have been "HERE!" Happy Friday!

    NO HERE! NO HERE! Yep, this dog doesn't hear a dang thing except what's in his own brain. "Must fetch! Must...eat...everything!" Enjoy!

    I shared the video because someone asked how I do it. If one person is curious then I'm sure a few of the RTF'ers are as well. This is a small step in my process. I don't think any of the comments...

    Thanks for everyone's feedback. I used treats early on and am beginning to fade them out. As you can see in the second or third heel out of habit I give her a treat (when I don't have one). This...

    Zee is around but he is now retired. My chocolate male Drake did it for a couple games and Roxi took over at 15 months old and stole the show. I think Zamzows got scared that Zee wouldn't bring the...
