I don’t know why I thought teaching a dog, that doesn’t know how to fetch, how to fetch in the dead of winter. It seems like a task only a fool would do (haha!)

  1. This post just made my day😂. I admire your commitment to this project when it is so cold out! I would be very tempted to stay inside and hide from the weather because I am a wimp haha. Where did you get the idea of bringing two toys to teach Ryder fetch? Did you use a resource or was it just something you knew would work?
