Teaching your dog to fetch

Teaching your dog to retrieve a toy is an easy game to play inside.  Start by getting two toys that are similar i.e. two tennis balls, two squeaky balls etc.  Toss on ball across the room or down the hall.  When your dog has picked up the ball, praise him and call him to come.  As he turns to you show him the second ball.   This will encourage him to drop the first ball when he gets to you.  Say your release word each time the dog spits out the ball and goes for the second ball.  When he released the first ball throw the second ball.  Continue playing fetch with the two toys until your dog has learned to bring back the ball and drop it for you.
