teaching Foxy to fetch certain items?

Ok, so my 1Yo GSDmix (Foxy) likes to play fetch, but I can't seem to get her to realize that a kong is a kong, her rope is her rope, and her ball is her ball.. So, when I tell her to "Go get your rope", or "Go get your Kong" she just doesn't seem to understand. I've tried holding up the kong, rope, ball in front of her face so that she sees it, saying the word (Kong, rope, ball), and then tossing it and saying "go get your (insert toy name)". Been about 3-4 weeks now with no luck so I think i'm doing something wrong. Ideas?

Teach them one at a time.

Yep, I second the one at a time scenario.

You can also try testing her. I get a clicker and 2 toys that I'm teaching the name of. I say that toys name and then she has to poke the right one with her nose. If she gets it right, click and treat.

Lol, if only she was smart enough to do that. I'll limit it to just one toy at a time for now as that does make the most sense.
