I am done training my little Jinxy to play fetch. If you throw, flick, or toss his toy mouse anywhere he will bring it back to your hand. It is truly amazing how well he does it, if you are sitting on the couch watching TV he will bring the mouse up and drop in your lap when he wants to play. About 8 rounds later he is tired of running and will lay down next to it, then about 30 minutes later it's on again. He wants to fetch so much now I feel guilty about not throwing it for him when he brings it to me, which makes me stay up later than I want, and sometimes now I am late to work . He used to be fooled by the "pump fakes" but not anymore, he knows when it going to be thrown for real, and if you throw it near his jumping range he will try to catch. I had to share this because it is so amazing, and consistent, he is addicted to playing fetch now. I just moved last Saturday, and he is stressed about the new house so he hasn't played yet. I hope it comes back to him though.
