Two key skills your dogs needs for a precise service dog retrieve are 'take' and 'give'.
A formal retrieve is so much more precise and reliable than a play retrieve. Dogs are tsught not to chew, throw or paw at objects. They need to carefully handle delicate objects. For many people with mobility or hand and arm weakness, they also need to deliver them to a precise location such as their hand or lap. Find out how to start training these behaviors in this video. The 'take' can be refined further than shwon in the video as well, so the dog can learn to take things behind his front canines or with his front teeth.
Check out my 'bird dog retrieve' video on my other channel supernaturalbc2009 . The exact same process is used to teach a bird dog retrieve as a service dog retrieve, just the environment is different. Learn how to teach a 'hold' and chain the behavior together.
