I am SO PROUD of my puppers! This may sound stupid, but last night when I was rolling a tennis ball across the floor after like 10 rolls Apollo actually picked it up and brought it back to me! :eek: Now I know some of you are thinking "Well DUH, he is a labrador RETRIEVER" but you have to understand, Apollo would NEVER bring the ball back. He is scared of toys and he had no clue how to fetch. This bummed me out cuz I could never play with him and tire him out. Well last night he not only retrieved one time, but THREE times! AND when I went to go put his leash on this morning he didn't pee himself (like he usually does) I am SOOOO proud of my puppers!

Here he is playing fetch:

That is wonderful. It won't be long and you'll be wondering why you ever taught him to retrieve. ;)

Aren't they funny when they finally figure something out? Seeing that light bulb go on is my favorite thing about dog training.
