Start with food then bring out the ball to challenge her work ethic. This obsession is why I could not use a toy to start Backup.

The goal is to condition the dog to learn the reward line, they only and always get the toy on the reward line, perform correctly and it appears, incorrectly and they try again. If they can't think clearly with a toy in hand you can try hiding it but more than likely its easier to go to a lower value reward and build up.

Again, I'm no expert on weaves but I'm experienced with obsessive cannot think clearly drive. lol shocker, I know.
