My dog is a 8 year old black lab mutt. She knows many commands but I wanted to give her a job to do on a daily basis. My uncles dog is a master at fetching the paper in the morning but she is a bird dog so I guess it was pretty easy to her. I want dixie to do this and I looked on YouTube for help and tried a video. So far I have gotten a toy and she has successful gone and fetched it on command but when I try it with the paper and the same command, she doesn't seem to put it together. Shell get too excited and think I want her to rip it up when I wave it around for her to get interested. She isn't a very high drive dog, very mellow and a definite "if I don't want to, I won't" she doesn't get into her training very much but I know she's smart. It's very frusterating because I know she is capable of the tricks, she just won't be enthusiastic no matter how hard I try to make the training session enjoyable. Please help!!!!
