How to Train a dog to fetch a ball
Warm up your pitching arm and be patient—you might just be playing "Throw" for a while before your dog catches on.
You will need:
somewhere big enough to play
a tennis ball
optional: a tshirt or dish towl with a knot tied in the middle, a leash, and a helper
You may be playing catch with yourself at first. Training dogs takes patience and perseverance.
