Ask your training question

Question: 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?


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? 


Cindy's Response:

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.

On Leerburg's Articles & Videos

Hi Ed, just wanted to thank you for all of the articles and training videos. I would of been lost without your site the last 8, 9, 10 years! I spent many hours reading all your info, watching all the videos and just absorbing your wisdom then applied it to my own German Shepherds. Several times over the years you actually came to my rescue with answers for issues I was having. Over the years I always give the Leerburg web address out in my puppy packets when my pups leave here. I'm currently stalking thru your kennel set up articles and pictures and whelping set up as we are starting to build another kennel set up. Looking at all the do's and don'ts. :) Thanks again for always being just a website click away when we need guidance.
