Some people tell me, "My puppy simply will NOT fetch". It's not true! You can teach any puppy to fetch. Just watch this video. This is their VERY first lesson in fetching. Max has a liking for balls already, so he is a natural.
While we would like to take the credit for "teaching" these puppies to fetch, we can only take partial credit. Puppies are attracted to bouncing balls and naturally chase them and put them in their mouth. I have only blocked off all escape routes, so there is no where for puppy to go, except back to me. Try it with your puppy. The younger, the better. It's a great game and a way to burn energy off your puppy, with little effort on your part.
