    Hi
    My jack Russell loves his ball however he won't bring it back!

    I will throw it for him and he will go on pick it up and then drop it in the same place waiting for me to come and get it.

    So has anyone got any advise getting him to bring it back?

    Have you tried giving him treats for bringing the ball back. Abi was 'trained' to fetch the ball, by giving her treats. She wouldn't have been interested otherwise. She then loved chasing the ball for a couple of months, always bringing it back. A few days ago, she stopped bringing it back so we started again with treats and rewards and lots of fuss. I hope this helps.
