9 Month Mini Aussie Not Interested In Playing Fetch Anymore
When she was 3 months.
Our 9 month blue merle Mini Aussie is starting to not play as much. She was playing fetch very well with the frisbee and balls and then all of a sudden stopped. We keep trying to figure out why she stopped and to get her interested again but she just won't. She also used to love playing tug of war with her stuffed animals but she does not do that either. It is almost like she has become bored with those types of play. We did keep her toys out for her to play with when are gone and have now put them away and only keep one or two out in order to try and get her excited about them when we do bring them out.
She does love to chase a bird wing on a fishing pole, she loves to catch the frisbee but not bring it back. She loves to play keep away and chase as long as we are chasing her and loves to go on walks or runs. And loves to be trained with basic and commands like sit, stay, come, wave, high five, shake, roll over, play dead, army crawl, dance, and jump and twist.
We have tried to get her to retrieve and retrain the retrieve but she is not interested. Can I get her back to retrieving on command? How are some ways to get her re-interested?
We are not big sports people and do not have time to do sports at the moment but if we decide to down the road we would love to introduce her to some type of sport and thought maybe the frisbee would be it but she seems to be getting bored with that too.
How do you keep a mini Aussie from getting bored and tired of the same things?
Thanks for your help.
