Does she retrieve? To teach the retrieve, hand her a ball (Princess, fetch), and bribe her to give it back to you (trade ball for treat). Repeat a few times, then roll the ball a little ways and tell her fetch. Fuss to get her to come back to you, trade ball for treat. Roll the ball a few inches at first, then a couple of feet. Over time, add a bounce, add stairs. Once she is solid on fetch you can have her running up and down stairs, get her to jump over a stick, and so on. You can drop the treat pretty quickly and use a verbal praise, you know the routine.

If she likes the 'hide and find me' game, something I do with Ranger to help promote him to bring back the object in 'fetch', is start to walk away or run away when he's heading back. It might entice her to follow, but this works best with a 'drop it' que. Also, some dogs just drop the item and THEN run after you, lol, but it's worth a try.

Edit-I also find, 'hide and seek' with treats is fun and depending on what you want to do, can help obediance training. For example, I will have Hunter sit and stay in another room, hide a treat in the room I'm in, then say 'find your treat'. He will search all over, sit to tell me he found it, then get the reward. Or, sometimes I just simply chuck a few treats in a tissue box, or regular box, and let them at it.

BY THE WAY-I also JUST noticed that Princess was born 7 days before Ranger was. His birthday is June 14th! ^.^

Hehe, It's Ranger, not Roger. Haha, though he acts more like a Roger! That's awesome, I wish I could throw something like that for Ranger, but my community lacks...well, community. Goodluck with finding some games!
