The retrieve

Okay, I got a problem.
Most of it is inexperience with teaching a retrieve.
I want to know if it can be done by me and no force.
I have been making alot of progress.
Most of it has been from teasing, kicking it around on the ground, getting her pumped.
Then, also letting her win it like a sleeve and running her around/tapping/backing up/ maybe try to fight for it some.
Tested her today, I use a small bench to jump her. That also gets her so hyped up. She went out with some hesitation, but picked it up, went flying past me. So I should maybe back up again. But, what is the best way to get them to come to you and want to engage?? Need any tips. thank you.

Re: The retrieve

What is that? I work her at a baseball field and there is a chain link back drop for the catcher. Is that what you mean by corner?
She gets out in the wide open and is gone like a bullet past me.
