One energetic pug and one ball
One bag treats and one clicker
Step 1: Present the ball to the pug and when the pug looks at the ball click and treat.
Step 2 Place the ball on the ground and click and treat when the pug looks at it, approaches it, and finally touches it. Very gradually increase the difficulty requiring the pug to touch or mouth the ball before you click and treat. You can also start to roll the ball at this point. Remember work slowly and ensure success for your pug.
Step 4 Once your pug is consistently running towards the ball and touching it. You are ready to throw the ball. Click and treat when your pug runs to the ball and touches it. At this point they don't have to bring the ball back.
Step 5 As soon as your pug starts putting their mouth on the ball and picking it up click and treat big time, with a jack put ( a couple of little treats). Before long your pug will be chasing the ball and returning it to you. Fetch!
