Have 6 month old BFL. Obedience is solid so trying to enter into force fetch. Have been working on hold for almost 2 weeks now with no success !!
Typical pattern in that you put bumper in mouth and say hold and she spits it out !!
Tried holding collar and praising with bumper in mouth but spits it out
Tried tapping under chin - helps a little - but the split second you try to say good girl she spits it out
Tried holding muzzle and bottom jaw but as soon as you let up she spits it out !!
Nothing seems to get her to understand hold means hold it !! Any Suggestions ??
Or maybe go ahead and move on to force fetch ??
