|Absolutely not ever! Occasionally they'll bat toys back to me so I can toss them again, but it's hardly what I would consider fetch.
In order to get Ember to play flyball, I had to work specifically on building up balls as a good thing (feeding with balls present, etc), then train her to pick up a ball, then train her to actually carry the ball, and then intergrate those behaviors into the pattern of the game. And she still only does it in that context, because hurtling over 4 jumps at top speed makes it worthwhile.
Because of all the conditioning, she will find balls and prance around in front of me hoping for a treat.
