    I suspected it, now I know it.

    So go ahead, roll your ball under the bookcase. Lay in front of it, whine, cry, nudge my hand, pout and then whine some more.

    It now stays where it lays. icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    Good luck on that. Zoey is great about putting her ball under the couch too and then whines until we get it out for her. I know she does it on purpose. If you can last longer that 15 minutes Dibs, you're better than me.

    It's been over an hour. She gave in before I did.

    It stays where it lays.

    Oh wow I can't believe you held out that long. Maybe you could give me lessons.

    Dawson trained Don exactly that way. Works like a charm.

    Dawson nudges ball under sofa (sideboard, wherever). Scratches floor to show his desire for its return. Whines, scratches and stares at Don.
    Has been known to escalate this to barking in Don's face.

    Don gets up, tells the dog "this is the LAST time", retrieves the ball, gives it to Dawson and goes back to what he was doing.
    Repeat from the top until you reach the desired number of LAST times.

    With me he bats it under my chair and I ignore it. If he starts scratching or barking I say 'kennel'. I retrieve the ball and put it out of reach and go back to what I was doing. The first time is the last time. icon_smile.gif

    She is now in her crate. Once there I removed the ball and am saving it for another day.

    There are 3 year old humans out there who would be proud of the shit fit she threw. icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    WTG Dib's... would you and K9 care to try Cat Training next? rotfl.gif

    (Actually my girls are "trained" to an extent..... they mostly always come when I call in general....they come when I call and shake the kibble container every time...they come to where I have gotten them used to getting treats which they have to either catch or go find and Stella no longer tries to wake me up to feed her in the morning!)

    Doesn't sound as though you need any help at all. icon_smile.gif

    I need at least three people to try to get Shadow into the carrier..... going to the vet is....an experience! Even though one of the places I give them treats is IN the carrier.... she remains suspicious of it -she's no fool - and Heaven forbid I try to even halfway close the bathroom door (it lives in one of the bathrooms) while she is in the room...... oh boy..... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Roo was ball obsessed. She would fetch until the moon fell out of the sky. If you were outside for any reason, she thought it was time to play ball. She would drop the ball over and over and over and...right by your foot. She sometimes dropped it in the house and it would roll under the huge entertainment center. She would run to me and whine and run back to the place where the ball was and whine and run to me and whine. I always went and got the broom and got it out for her. Candy also would fetch and scratch the floor if the ball went under something. I was cleaning yesterday and found a tennis ball under the living room chair. I don't have a dog that fetches anymore. I left the ball there where I could still see it.
