Default Only likes toys if he finds them

This isn't exactly a "behavior" I just find it a little odd. If I hand gunner a toy, he might play with it for a few seconds then be done. However, if he goes into an open bag and finds one of his toys in there that normally he wouldn't even be interested in, he will take it out and play with it forever! Maybe I should just start hiding all of his toys. He's a weirdo lol.

Great that he can entertain himself, but............

not that he'd much RATHER play alone then with you.

If I were you I'd be working on being more fun then, uh then no one . Cause the ability to engage and interact with our dogs is a HUGE help in training! Food AND toys are the best way to work with our dogs.

Have you been able to work on ---> Top Training Expectations for Puppies

Good luck!

Great idea, the best game for my female is when I take a ball or toy and hide it and ask her to search and find. Absolutely loves it and will patiently wait until told to go and search for it. I do exclaim how good job she did when she brings it back.
