I recently got a new (to me) dog from a shelter and I'm working on training him. I'm looking for specific help on a problem I'm having.

He's been real quick to pick up on the basics but I'm having difficulty getting him to pick up objects. I've tried various tactics to get him to pick up things or even notice them but he's so focused on me when we are training that i can't get him to notice toys. If I move it around and put it near his face and eventually he will grab it only to remove it to the other room and return. Any advice?

The end goal is to teach him to fetch. When I throw toys they are only interesting while moving and as soon as they stop he's disinterested and returns back to me.
