A solid retrieve to hand is an important skill for most service dogs. Whether picking up a dropped object, delivering an object to your hand or between your legs when sitting, your dog needs to learn how to pick up, carry, hold and deliver objects to a location that is convenient to you using appropriate mouth pressure. The retrieve is an important part of many other service dog tasks as well. In all, 35 games!
