Quit picking it up for him. My dog puts whatever weíre tossing around in my hand or I donít throw it. When he was still young we started playing in the hall where he didnít have the option of running around with it in his mouth acting like an a hole.

Once you get him doing a good hold I would run through his basic obedience while making him hold it. Sit, stay, come, down, heel, place. All while giving him the hold command

This is more than a hold or FF problem. Before that, it is a basic obedience problem. firm that up really well first, then you can work on the next step of the retireve, hold, delivery to hand.

I put off force fetch forever because I thought I could have a well trained dog without it. I finally broke down and force fetched with the ear pinch. It made life so much easier for both of us. I'm not going to lie, force fetching a dog sucks, but just make sure you mix in some fun with it and it isn't quite so bad. It will also serve as a foundation to much of the other training that needs to be done.
