How to Teach Your Puppy to Retrieve a Toy

Playing with puppies is a lot of fun. They are full of energy and always want to learn. Fetch games are great to play while your young puppy is doing some exercise at the same time.

 Some dogs are natural retrievers and are willing to take whatever they throw. However, some varieties do not occur naturally, so we need to teach them how to do this. Fortunately, it’s not difficult at all.

Tips for Teaching New Games:

  • Never get angry.
  • Always use fun and exciting voice tones.
  • Do not train for more than 10 minutes at a time, as puppies quickly lose interest.
  • Always end the session with positive notes, whether he learned the trick or not.

Teach the puppy to fetch or play fetch.

1. Sit on the floor with a toy or ball that the puppy is interested in. Bounce nearby dog toys a little and when the puppy sees him, he praises it and says, “Good boy!”

 2. Now, let’s move the toy a few feet away. For young puppies, rolling a toy is easier to track and track than throwing. This is much more difficult for puppies. Once you roll the toy, encourage your puppy to go after it and if he does, use your excited happy tone of voice to say, “Take it!”

 3. Since some dogs are natural retrievers, they won’t hesitate to go after it and bring it right back! If he does this then make sure you lay on the praise really thick with a couple of high-pitched “What a Good Boy!” accolades. Please note that this is not the norm. Usually, puppies don’t go after and bring the toy back on the first try unless they are a breed that is known for retrieving. The average puppy will have to be taught what it is you want them to do with this toy. So keep in mind that it’s okay for puppies to take some time to learn this.

 4. If the puppy approaches the toy and does not know what to do, encourage the puppy to pick it up with a bright voice. If he isn’t interested in grabbing it, you’ll have to pick it up. Be excited and optimistic.

 5. If he does pick it up then you should start to back up still facing your puppy while saying, “Bring It!” If he does bring it to you then praise him well. Keep repeating steps 2 through 4 until he brings it back on a consistent basis.

 6. If your puppy is doing Step 5 on a consistent basis, now is the time to increase the distance gradually when rolling the dog toys. If your puppy begins to hesitate to follow him, follow him for encouragement. Please do not throw it so far next time.


The focus on mental training for dogs is incredibly important. Therefore, we need to do what we can to spread knowledge about the topic. Like humans, physical and mental exercise is necessary for dogs, and buying a dog’s toys plays a vital role in it. Because dogs like to play with these types of toys.
