I have a 2yr. golden and when we play ball outside he never wants to give it up for me to throw again. When we play inside he will drop it in my lap to throw up again for him. I have tried to play with 2 balls but he will only run after the one. any ideas to get him to give up the ball.
We had a foster yellow lab one time who did the exact same thing. The trick we used was to just totally ignore him untill he gives it back. Pretend like you don't want it, and he will probably be inticed by that alone. When you "fight" to get the ball away from him, that becomes the game, so avoid that. Good luck!!
