with playing by themselves. I bugs me so much because we work on recall a lot in home and shes perfect but outdoors its tough. When ever we play ball in a fenced in playarea the past few weeks shes been a handful to gather up, even if I have another toy to show her or food she'll just play with ball by herself and if I try to get her she does the catch me if you can dance. Of course I don't respond, yesterday I even tried leaving the play area and walking 100yds away (like Dog Listener recommends) it didn't work eventually I have to wait until she gets tired and wants some bottled water. Its wierd because when I take her down to the big fields she always comes right back and we can play fetch must be a wierd association with play area. It's never been a big deal until the other day because normally she tires out and comes to me within a few mins of ignoring or she wants water, but the other day a couple watched me try to get her for 15mins I was so embarrassed they probably thinkI 'm the worst dog owner with no control of my dog.
