LEERBURG'S FEATURED PRODUCT
 
 
 
 
Zuke's Mini Naturals
 
"Have yet to meet a dog that doesn't like Zukes! They are soft enough to be broken in two for the smallest of dogs, yet firm enough not to break up in a pouch or pocket. They don't leave a greasey mess either! Love that they are all natural!"

Question:
 

I have been working on the retrieve and the send away and now when I throw the dumbbell, my female runs out and touches it (like the send away) and wants to come back for her tug reward without the dumbbell. Any input would be appreciated.


Answer:
 

I would back up the training on the retrieve. If you have to go with her and kick and/or repeat the command then she’s not ready for you to throw it so far. I also would not work retrieves and send aways in the same session right now.


Whenever you have issues with training, go back to the level where the dog is understanding and getting success without so much help and build back up from there. You may also have gone to a toy reward too quick. I used food for a long time before I added the toy.
