  1. I tried to teach my dog but she won't give the ball to me. Instead she thinks I'm trying to take it away permanently and so she turns around and runs away. I can say i have taken the ball from her a few times when she won't give it to me but I don't know what else to do

  2. You lost my interest when I saw how you toss the treat on the floor instead of handing it directly to the puppy. Half the time he didn't see you do it so he has to find it! This takes away from the immediate reward does it not??

  3. I have an American Bully he is about 1 1/2 years old is it to late to teach him to fetch and implies control? Thank you enjoyed this video also the time that it took to train you dog, encourages me to be patient.  Thank you. JGH

  4. Aaahhh!! He is back! I didnt even notice! I am subscribed to this guy just so that I can find his channel quickly when I want to look up training tips on his old videos. I had no idea he was making them again! Wooo!!

  5. Hi there, thanks for your video. I have been trying to teach my 6 month duck tolling retriever how to fetch but it's been mixed results so far. He now knows to mouth the object on cue, but we've been struggling to increase the duration. I have tried 4 sessions so far, and there's been like zero progress on the duration. Any tips on that? Thanks!

  6. I found out my female German Shepherd was deaf, but declined to return her. Training took on a different method. No voice commands, just hand signals and eye contact. Results were rewarding for both the dog and me.
