I have a 12 week old Black Lab pup who up until two weeks ago would retrieve every time the dummy was thrown. In the last two weeks he has seemed to lose interest in it, he will do it but only for a retrieve or two and then seems to lose any interest in doing it. This has been in the form of games so far with no discipline. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get him reengaged with this again? He is doing very well with his basic commands on the leash, should I back off on having him retrieve during training sessions and keep it as a reward for after the sessions? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
