my lab won't "fetch"

Post by CulpAgen » Sun, 23 Nov 1997 04:00:00

I have a 6 month old female yellow lab.  She won't retrieve any thing that I
throw for her.  When I throw a ball or other object, she will run to it and
then return without bringing the ball back.  Sometimes she'll pick it up, but
drop it before she returns to me.  She has brought it back a couple of times
(purely accidental I'm sure) and I've praised her immensly,

Is there any hope for "Dixie"? What can I do? Will this problem be permanent?

Thanks in advance!
