I can't get Selma to drop consistently I've tried all the usual tricks (clicker training, tosing treats ont he floor, even a squirty water bottle tut tut) but she's like a clam, once she's got hold she won't give up her ball (or stick or tug etc) for anything. On the rare occasion she does drop it for a treat, she snaffles the treat and dives back onto the ball so darn fast that there's no way you can get to it before she does. Now of course, she thinks this is all part of the game and so I'm just perpetuating the problem. I've tried using another ball as a decoy - doesn't work, she only wants the one she has at that moment.... She shows it off, teases, parades around, throws it in the air and generally winds me up! I think I've tried everything, but you never know, so if anyone has a special method for teaching this little madam to drop, please tell me!
