I like to mix up play with obedience...so I wouldn't be doing that....I'd ask for positions, heeling with focus, and mix it up with the running fetch. Mental exercise wears out a dog just as fast as physical.

But if I were working on something particular or teaching the dog, I'd not reward with the launcher, but put the dog up for processing after the session. So play/train/play, but with goals in mind.
