Does anyone have a V that they actually trained to LIKE to fetch (especially with balls)? My V, whom we adopted at age 3 (now 4), only fetches when she feels like it, and we discovered she doesn't like to swim - I have to carry her in the pool and let her swim back to the steps. Our last dog, a lab mix, lived with a ball in her mouth and although she didn't live in the pool all summer, she did like to go in when she was hot or when I threw a ball into the water. Is there any hope? I miss playing ball with my dog! If I throw her a ball, it just bounces off her nose :.
