So my puppy has gotten pretty good at picking stuff up on command. My trouble now is getting her to hold something and carry it with her. For instance, if I want her to carry a rope around the backyard with me, I can get her to pick it up, but I can't seem to get her to carry/hold it. She'll bring it to me and drop it.

I've tried keeping it in my hand and getting her to hold it longer, but she just takes that as a tug of war challenge.

Any thoughts? The second I say, "hold", and intend to reward her for keeping it in her mouth longer, she drops it, seemingly confusing hold with drop.
