Fetch!

How in the world do I get my crazy little monster to return!? She has a crazy prey drive but she would rather run it down bring it half way back then roll around in the grass wrestling the frisbee.

I've tried to sit and just wait, this seems to kind of work but she still doesn't understand the point. I've also tried using the clicker a little, she was more interested in the frisbee (even if she was hungry). I've also tried using a long lead on her but then she gets mad at the lead and fights that.

Any ideas would be of a great help!! Please and thank you!!!

How old is your little monster? Toss things in the house for her to fetch. Just a few feet for starters. It doesn't have to be a ball or a frisbee. Anything that you can get her to bring back to you.
Some dogs are nuts for fetch some could care less. I have had both.
