My lab is only for companionship, not working and we love him to death. We feel he loves us back. Problem is, he is really good at tricks and learning new ones, except "fetch". He will not retrieve anything. He will go after some stuff but will either pick it up and drop it real fast or he will never pick it up but come real close. Dog info: 90 lb. about 2 yrs old Neutered got him when he was about 1 yr old very happy and active personality indoor kept but exercised Thanks in advance for any info.
