Q. I'd like to teach my dog to retrieve all kinds of items, like keys. Do you have a video that shows how to do that?
Hi, 

I am looking for a video on how to teach a dog to fetch (retrieve an object, bring it back to me and drop it in my hand). I hope to be able to teach that dog to retrieve all kinds of objects, even a set of keys. Would you have that? 

Thanks

A. Yes, I would suggest Training the Retrieve with Michael Ellis.

My dog was trained following the steps in this video, here is a free clip demonstrating the finished result.

It will be helpful if your dog understands some basic concepts of marker training first.

I would recommend that you view the video The Power of Training with Food prior to starting the work in the retrieve video. I hope this helps.

The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.

This DVD is 4 hours long. The purpose of this Leerburg training DVD is teach you the art of dog training. It's our goal to show you that dog training is not rocket science it's 100% common sense. There are no "Tricks or Secrets of the Trade." Dog training is an art that you can learn if you're willing to put your mind to it. The best dog trainers know how to build a bond based on two way respect between the dog and the handler. These trainers know how to motivate a dog to want to learn. They understand how and when to apply distractions during training so they can show the dog that it must mind under all circumstances.
