Bribe him, get him some scooby snacks, and when he brings the ball back give him the snack, that's how I started with my Thor, and now I don't even have to offer him the snack he knows he can't chase the ball if I don't throw it....

i think you should teach your dog to come before teaching fetch
or find it.
