are you talking about the game fetch or to fetch a certain item?

i took too long to edit my post...

I looked through this section and found the following threads on teaching fetch..I did not read them but hopefully one of them will help

https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum/how-do-i-teach-my-dog/96151-retrieving-ball.html

if you want it to fetch a certain item its the same as fetch they just have to know the items name

I actually think that a formal retrieve is one of the most complex tasks to teach for competitive obedience.

Just getting your dog to bring something back? Not so much.

Yes. That is true. And thats when a lot of people use pressure, e-collar and the prong because they don't know how to do it otherwise...

When I think back 18-20 years... omg...the way they taught and trained (if you can even use those words) dogs to retrieve, those poor dogs went through he$$ and back to learn how to retrieve because it was so common these days to use tortorous tools.
