Dog Training Advice

My 1y7mo old yellow lab named Casper and he will not fetch. I know this is pretty much my fault that he wont fetch because we didn't do it much when he was a puppy. The reason is that he didn't live with me due to previous accidents and my girl friend was nervous about him staying with me. Ok, back to the problem. He will not fetch at all if he is not in the water. He will chase after it but will not bring it back. If we are in the water, he will go get and bring it back but he wont bring it to me. I want to be able for him to fetch stuff so we can play and hopefully be able to go hunting with me. Thanks for any tips. Here is my baby boy:

put a string or rope on his coller then when he wont bring it back drag him to you so he has no choice but to bring back what he is fetching. and with labs a lot of times take them out with another lab that knows what it is doing and they will compete as far as bringing your birds back. my lab wont fetch anything that isnt a bird, wheather it be a ball stick or anything. but i shoot a duck he will sure as heck get it and bring it to me

What about the stuff he wont even get? He will run up to it but he want get it. My girlfriend has a lab and whent they are together they will go get it and then they try to take it from each other but he does do better about getting it when she is around

our shep. is stubborn. i use cheese. when he performs the task i give him, i reward him with a peice of cheese. thus teaching him that if he does it the way i want him to he will get a peice of wonderful cheese. or use whatever he likes the best.

While he is on a lease....play fetch with someone elses dog ??.. I had a yellow lab which I bought from a professional (owner of a chesapeake bay champion)That is how he used to teach the pupil dogs to retrieve.
Hope your lab is not as hard headed as mine was..
