Moray is a different story. The dog fetches.
Dante, Moray and I were playing in the backyard together, and I threw a ball for them. Dante lost interest after a few minutes, and went to find a stick. Moray raced after the ball and brought it to me. I, of course, praised and gave him a treat. I threw it again, not really thinking he would bring it back, but sure enough, he did.
I took Moray out by himself the other day to see if he would really Fetch. He does.
I try not to compare Dante and Moray, but I am totally flabbergasted that Moray doesn't even need to be taught. Sure, I want to put a "fetch" command with it, but it is so much easier when he is already doing it.
We take this oppertunity to work on impulse control and his commands, asking for a "sit" or "shake" or "speak" before each throw.

It is SO much fun that Moray wants to fetch, and even seeks me out for attention when he is free in the yard. Love this sweet baby!
