How many of you have created a monster???

I have just created the one so far, and that is Rogue, my 7 month old pup, it took me awhile to get her to actually bring the ball back to me and drop it. It use to be I throw it, she would chase it, run half way back to me then stop and pull some shinanigans so I would have to chase her down and get the ball from her. It took many moons for myself, along with my other GSD, Riddick, to get her to understand the concept of fetch, and now...I have created a monster! She wants to play ball all the time!

Even as I sit her typing this she is pushing her toy into my leg and foot trying to provoke me to throw it...I guess I will have to take and hide her ball until it is actually time to play ball...just curious on how many others out there have absent mindedly created a monster?

Our "little" 10 1/2 month old Luther is toy-crazy, too. We have taught him to give us the toy nicely and to sit before it's thrown (adding in some training to the madness). I am reminded of our son, who at 10-11 lived to play monopoly - it was an every-night-after-dinner ritual in our house for a loooonnng time.

Brady is obsessed with his ball
Hence why I call him Boo Boo boy
when you have bal in hand that is all he pays attention to
so running into car, house, bush or tree doesn't phase him

Re: How many of you have created a monster???

My girl Neke was a ball monster. When she was 13 we brought her with us to dog camp (I was giving a seminar).

We took her and the other dogs down to the lake to do some swimming. She kept bringing the tennis ball to us and we'd toss it it the water - just a few feet out. It didn't take long before she was SO tired she almost couldn't make it out of the water. We decided to call it quits and started to walk away with the gang.

She wasn't ready to stop. She grabbed the ball and brought it over to one of the other campers and dropped it at her feet.

She would have chased that ball until she died.

Her son Riggs was also ball obsessed but he didn't care as much for the retreiving part. If you threw it he would bring it back but if you waited for him to bring it closer he would just walk off and play with the ball by himself, flipping it with his feet!

Tazer, our Cocker, is also a ball monster. The only thing he likes more is lure coursing!

Re: How many of you have created a monster???

Jesse is toy crazy, all toys, balls, cuzs, stuffed animals, tugs etc. he was easy to train fetch by 4 months, once I knew he knew what I meant, if he didn't bring it back when I asked I ended the game, he soon learned if he didn't bring it back to mom and drop it all fun stopped. Also helped doing fetch and teaching to bring it back and drop it by using 2 balls. He would always want the one I was holding.

Re: How many of you have created a monster???

yup, Jack wants me to constantly play ball with him! I keep asking him "at some point aren't you tired & bored of this?". The answer is always no.

I feel bad sometimes cause the only way to get him to stop is to tell him to go lay down.

Re: How many of you have created a monster???

I dont' think I have had one who is NOT a monster!

My boy will swim forever for a stick - once I had him in a lake, and he would NOT come out of the water, he tried to hide behind some vegetation, his ears barely showing...I had to start the truck before he came out of the lake. He also will tug and fight with dumbbells - a dictated training created behavior that backfired and basically ruined his competition career...he loves those dumbbells!

My keyboard is constantly bumped by cuz' or orbees - and I find them in my bed, in the tub - everywhere I go, there are toys cached, and a dog ready to play with them.
