And every once in a while I do let them rip roar around like idiots, but only when I release them to do so by making a shush sound. Running like that is very high impact exercise and I prefer to save the high impact stuff for agility training, since it's so hard on their joints. I know I'm in a minority on that one. My dogs don't play fetch either. Luckily they are dogs, they live in the moment, and they have plenty of fun in their lives. They don't miss playing fetch.

Also (and yes I keep editing to add things), the weather is so mild I am going to set up a training set our Team Manager sent us this afternoon. Should be great fun!
