You will need to train your dog to fetch the newspaper on a daily basis, but after a while, you will only need to teach him to fetch it once a day.
Undeniably, the best way to teach your dog to fetch the newspaper is to make sure that he has it every day.
It is also useful to teach your dog to fetch the newspaper in the mornings, before you leave for work, by having him wait in your room until you have your newspaper ready.
Indeed, this is how most dogs learn the behavior.
You can practice this exercise with a newspaper, but you can also use a large cardboard box or even a trash can.
Steps For Fetching A Newspaper!
- Put the newspaper on the floor or on a table.
- Place your dog in a sit position, facing the newspaper.
- Extend your arm with the newspaper and place it in front of your dog’s nose.

Indeed, if your dog is not able to fetch the newspaper from the sidewalk or porch, he will not be able to fetch it from the street.
Use a piece of newspaper to help your dog learn to fetch.
The next step is to place a target at the location your dog fetches from. When your dog fetches the newspaper, give him a treat.
As your dog fetches from the newspaper, move the target away from the newspaper to increase the distance he has to fetch.
If your dog fetches the newspaper, but you are not able to move the target away from the newspaper, you can try placing the newspaper on a step stool.

Is newspaper safe for Dogs?
For the same reason that you should not eat your newspaper, you should not feed your dog the newspaper.
Why is that?
Well, it is made of paper and if it is eaten, the paper can be dangerous to your dog’s digestion. It can also cause a blockage in the digestive tract.
When the newspaper is ingested, the paper fibers become stuck in the stomach. The stomach then attempts to break them down.
If the paper is not broken down, the stomach will attempt to push the paper out of the dog’s body.
Reward Your Dog With Food
The best way to train your dog is to reward him with food.
In the early years of training, when you’re just getting started, it’s best to use food as your reward.
Once you’ve mastered the basics of training, you can begin to use other types of rewards.
Pets, like people, are creatures of habit. They are creatures of routine, and they do things for a reason.
When you reward your dog with food and toys, you’re giving him a reason to behave and stay.
