A Single Moment of Fetch

He plays fetch when he wants to. I would have uploaded the entire session but instead I chose to upload only a single moment of it, because the entire video was alot of me not being sure if the phone was angled well or not.

It takes a little work to teach. I started by having the ball on my desk. He would knock it in the floor and I would pick it up. So he got pretty happy about playing with the ball. Later I started trying to catch it instead of letting it hit the floor. When I would catch the ball I would praise him and give him a treat. So in short time he started putting it directly in my hand instead of knocking it over. Later we moved the game to the floor where I would hold my hand out and he would walk it over to me and put it in my hand for a treat. Then one day I just leaned away from him instead of holding my hand out and he immediately flew up to hand it to me, and hence we have the fetch game. (he was already accustomed to flying to my finger)
