Eddie LOVES retrieving - balls, sticks (finds 'em himself, then just strips it!), frisbees, air kong etc, anything.... but for love nor money I cannot get him to drop the blimmin' thing so that I can throw it again for him!! He tends to prance around, rolling it about/waggling it at me to play and then its a battle to get it off him! He LOVES being chased (we don't do it but other dogs do!) and will bash my leg with the toy for me to grab it and do tug a war but just won't drop it!! Today, I was determined to teach him (again! ) - took hotdogs with me and tried rewarding when he let go but the crazy lab prefers his toy to a hotdog!!! I have got to the stage where if I can put my foot on it to stop him running off, then he will leave it until told he can get it but just won't fetch and drop it!! Any help - PLEASE!!!???
