I should add that I changed up the reward process a little. I only rewarded her with the ball 5 out of 7 finds. for every find. She did get an awesome good reward instead, but I withheld the ball once when the find was particularly easy, and once when she found the target, then picked it up and carried it off. (this was the only plastic target, and she was enjoying chomping on it…)

When I did reward her with the ball, it was only for 1 or 2 short tosses. So fewer than she’s used to.

Anyhow, I think that saving the ball for stellar work and doing fewer tosses helped keep her drive up .
