This is a very valuable exercise. In this exercise your dog will learn to retrieve items on command, no matter the item, 100% of the time. Not only is this beneficial for hunting and service dog work, but it is also great for building confidence and creating a much stronger bond with the owner. Many advanced exercises rely on this exercise as their foundation.
