    DefaultAdvice on getting my puppy to love water and play fetch

    I have a 5 month old puppy he has the webbed feet so when I took him down to where a body of water is and threw a couple sticks in he just there, and I am also having a hard time getting him to fetch I'll toss a ball or stick and say "go fetch" and he won't do anything I'll take all the suggestions and help possible and does anyone know at what age the love for water kicks in

    why are you worried about this?
    what is a "body of water"? Lake Michigan?
    5 months is fairly young.
    mine enjoyed the creeks until he realized he was able to swim, at 2 yrs. old.

    Try putting some water in a flat-bottom pan. He may start splashing around in it like he is trying to dig a hole. Move up to a bigger water container like a kiddie pool and go from there.
