Which do your Labs prefer to reterieve?
Sticks, balls, frisbies or anything they can get a hold of?
Jasmine is my retriever and she is content with a stick but adores and would never drop and lose her ball so I guess that would be her favourite.

Both of my girls have NO interest in tennis balls! We have tried them and they just do not capture their interest. Sticks are their choice. As far as using bumpers or toys - Scupper just rips them apart.
tennis balls here although the frisbee comes in at a close second ..........pretty much anything you can throw they go after with a vengence
Lily is insane for tennis balls. Both Lil and Rhumba love when I get dokkens and bumpers out - but it is chaos if there is a real 'bird' involved.

In water, Abbey will retrieve sticks, tennis balls and her bumpers. On land, she will retrieve sticks, bumpers, frisbees, tennis balls, you name it.
