Springer Spaniel who won't bring things back
My 20 week Bailey won't bring balls sticks slippers or anything back when he takes them he thinks it's a game just stares and keeps runnin off and no matter wot I say he won't bring it back . Help
Ah the classic chase me game. By taking things he is instigating a game of chase, if he gives it back to you then the fun is over.
So you need to completely ignore him when he does this, almost turn and walk away. Then when he looks like he is coming back give him lots of praise and even more if he comes back. That way he learns that bringing things back equals fuss and fun and taking things means being ignored.
