Teacher’s Pet: That’s SO Fetch

Hello hello, and welcome back to Teacher’s Pet, a column on all things training!  Every other #TrainingTuesday, Brussels.Sprout, will share his how-tos for learning new tricks, updates on his own adventures in agility competition, and his favorite tips for helping you and your pup bond over training.

That’s SO Fetch!

There’s pretty much only one thing that’s guaranteed to make Sproutie smile and that’s a game of fetchies with his teeny tiny tennis ball.  Seriously, this guy is obsessed.  Oh, and in the rare event that Sprout gets too tired to fetch… he’ll just bring his ball to bed with him.  It’s adorbs.  But I digress.



Fetch can be so much more than just a fun game… For many pups, a throw of the ball is just as rewarding as a treat, so use the game to give your dog a physical and mental workout.


Check out this weeks’ video for some of our tips and tricks on how to step up your fetchies game and use it as a training tool!  And no worries if you have a pup who prefers tug or another game to fetch – you can still use these tips to generally start incorporating a little training into any playtime!
