My 7 month old border collie is having trouble playing fetch.
She is always really excited to play, and when I am holding the ball she is ready to go, but when I throw it, sometimes she only runs a short distance and then stops and stares at me like shes waiting for something. She will eventually go and get it if I encourage her enough but she will just slowly walk over and get it.
I cant find any pattern (distance, angle, time spent playing, etc) because sometimes she is keen as anything to play and will blister after the ball and be a good puppy, but it's really frustrating when I am the one always fetching the ball!
She is in prime health so I'm not worried about her joints or anything, I think she is just being a princess!
Has anyone got any advice?
