Dog Training : How to Train a Dog to Fetch a Newspaper


Teaching your dog to retrieve the newspaper
will be made much easier by having a dog who already knows how to retrieve and who also
knows how to target something, so you can very easily teach your dog that this is the
item, the newspaper, that you want them to target, and then asking them to retrieve it
for you. And the beginning of that, again if your dog is clicker trained might be to
ask them to touch the newspaper and pick it up. So if we throw it on the floor… and the dog shows interest in it…you want
them to touch it with their mouth because you’re going to ask them to pick it up. You
don’t want them to target it with their foot ’cause that’s a confusing message. Then you
can reward the touch of the newspaper and work up to picking the newspaper up and then
placing it in your hand.
