Training my dog to fetch...I need help
First of all, just to get this straight, my dog's name is Charlie.
My dad and I wanted to teach Charlie how to fetch...kind of. You see, Charlie can catch the ball in the air (we just realized it) and we want him to do that, except he doesn't bring the ball back to us. But we also play a game with him where we use the ball and try to take it away from eachother. I would try to get it from Charlie, he would try to get it from me, he doesn't bite though. We tried to train him once, but then, we played that game with him so now he won't bring him back anymore. I was wondering, maybe I shouldn't play that with him anymore, but I just want to know what's the best way to train him to bring the ball back. I think the way I trained him wasn't very effective.
