I loved this webinar for its complete breakdown of the steps to teach a retrieve. It is often difficult to know how and when to up criteria when clicker training. I can't wait to try this on my non-gundogs :D

I'm excited to get started working with my companion dog Gypsy on force-free clicker retrieve. While she's not a resource guarder, I've always wanted to teach Gypsy to retrieve various articles just for the fun of it. And now I can!

Would You Like a Consistent & Reliable Retrieve to Hand?

Does your dog play keep-away with balls, socks, etc.? Does she drop toys on the ground instead of delivering to your hand? Is she reluctant to pick the item up? The solution is the Clicker Retrieve!

This isn’t just for fetching - in fact, I don’t necessarily recommend a lot of high intensity fetching because it can increase arousal. For example, you can hide a toy and have your dog go search for it, instead. I also find that if a dog guards something, the easiest way to address the issue is to teach your dog to bring the precious item to you.


The sit. The wait. The go-out. The pick-up. The return. The delivery.

The Clicker Retrieve is a chain of behaviors, and with all chains, at any point, things can go wrong. I first met Jo Laurens in a BAT instructor’s course many years ago. She’s an insightful trainer and a kind human being. Please join Jo for this webinar to learn how to teach each piece of this chain and put it together for a reliable retrieve.
