1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect. 2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff. 3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned. 4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

My 5 year old daughter was videoing so you can't see her dropping the ball right at me or in my hand

blue and orange chuck-it ball! that is keeonah's all time favorite toy lol. She actually throws it for herself now.
A few fetch. Most will chase, pounce, decide the threat has been eliminated then call it a day lol. Keeonah will only play fetch if she's in the right mood. Don't be surprised if one day Snow decides not to give chase, or retrieve.
Here is a successful one at the beach:)

Luna loves fetch, we throw sticks in the river or a toy down the hallway when we're at home. She loves being on the 15 ft leash in the park and fetching as well!

Bleeker will fetch a little, but usually drops it half way back. And about the 3rd time it's thrown, Juno tackles Bleeker, and fetch is over.
But then, they wrestle for 5 minutes, get worn out, run inside for a drink, puke some back up, and are on to whatever else is next.

Karli wont fetch balls, only toys that make noise. We did it today, but it only lasts for about two minutes then she either runs outside with the toy or stops watching it and tries to wrestle me instead. But its cool she does it at all.

Kale runs to go get it, but then when bringing it back,runs past me and proceeds to play keep away lol Until I tell him to drop it. Then the game starts all over again
That's what Stark does - unless there's another dog at the dog park, then he'll taunt the other dog with the ball and a chase ensues... usually it ends up with the ball being dropped wayyyyyy out in a corner somewhere...

Both my dogs play full on fetch. Throw, bring it back, etc, haha. We play a game with Koda where he sits at the top of the stairs and then we throw it and he throws it back..
