Fetching! Teach Your Dog to Bring You Anything
What Is It? Fetching, retrieving – whatever you want to call it, having your dog bring something to you is not only helpful, but it’s also a cool way to exercise your dog and impress your friends! So what exactly does it mean when your dog fetches something? It’s pretty straightforward: you throw something and your dog brings it back for you. When trained to it’s highest level, you can name the object you want him to retrieve and just tell your dog to go find it and bring it to you.
Why Is It Important? Fetching is important because it allows you to use your dog as a personal butler. Just checking to make sure you’re still paying attention. While it would be helpful for your dog to be your butler and bring your slippers and the newspaper every morning, it’s also important because you can use this to get your dog to exercise more. If you can throw something and get your dog to bring it back to you, you can efficiently exercise your dog without chasing him all over the backyard just to get the ball to throw it again.
