My dog will not let me touch his paws or ears for cleaning/checking. How should I approach this issue?
My dog is the greatest little show man in the world except for the judge's exam. The judge was a new provisional judge and scared him to death. We've had problems ever since

My puppy is more interested in everything except retrieving, is there an easy solution to this?
I have a 5 year old Lab. She has learned a lot of obedience but refuses to return the ball or whatever we use for fetch. She wants to play keep away.
