I have a 9 wk old GSP. It has what I would consider to be a very good pedigree and both parents are excellent field dogs.
I have been trying to get this pup to bring me a ball or a toy so I can work on retreiving but he acts like he's not interested. I can throw the ball or toy and he will run to it. Then he will either pick it up and drop it, or look at it and then run back to me without it.
I have tried this in the yard and in his kennel where there are no distractions same results both places. I have done this before with other pups and never encountered this behavior. What should I do?
Thanks. He is out of the westwind, sundance (sire), and fieldmaster line (dam).
