Re: encouraging play time breakthrough - what next?
Substitute a piece of rubber hose or a long soft toy for the newspaper?
Are you rewarding the catch or the drop? If you use a clicker and click (mark) while the paper is in her mouth you will reward that behavior and may be able to extend the time she holds on to it. If you reward after she drops it without marking the hold, you are rewarding the drop.
Glad you have made some progress with her. I think once she gets it she will figure out the rest pretty quickly.
