Questions about "Fetch"
#6
Interesting

I will throw something else out there, pun intended, lol

One of the Scandinavian countries I believe goes as far as banning "fetch" because of the OCD happening in dogs.
A little extreme, however I have seen this, particularly in labs and a few BCs.
Don't get me wrong I think fetch is a great outlet for most dogs. No when it becomes obsessive though

I think there is a nature link to dogs wanting to play fetch, genetics.
I also think there is a nurture as well.
Fetch is something I don't play. No reason I have no problem with it, so my pup would not have seen it.
My high prey GSD still could play fetch, I think you right about the prey drive Trifan.
I have seen low drive dogs being introduced to fetch as pups and can play..
