Dog fails to take treats after fetching

Postby Sannas » November 27th, 2015, 1:53 pm

Over half of the time I order my dog to fetch and it brings the animal it doesn't understand me trying to give it a treat. This seems to occur if the dog moves after fetching. I must say I don't see a reason why rewarding your dog should have an option to fail anyway. This only makes dog treats frustrating to use. Because it can fail I wonder if it counts as a command and uses stamina too.

I know this problem, I'd estimate it happens to me after nearly 50% of the fetches. Sometimes trying a second or third time works, but often if the first attempt fails, the dog will not take the treat. Would be good if the command system would be overhauled a bit (also the permanent ignoring of the stay command on some hunts).

The treats are a moot point with scent hounds after they track down a kill. They are unable to accept any. So much for skill up bonuses...

I have also observed my retriever unable to accept a treat after presenting her retrieved bird/rabbit. Repeatedly.

It only works when the dog stands still or sits down (on his own) after putting down the bird. I usually wait a second or two until my dog stops for a moment, but in around one third of the cases she's roaming around and just wouldn't accept the treat.

I do remember one time the Dog did accept a Treat once after a Track ... but then it stopped after the past few updates.

Even had the Birds the Retriever would bring back would suddenly Sling Shot off the map after giving the Dog a treat for a Successful Retrieval.
Also Easily Replicated with Multiple Retrievals to the same point.

Well I have attempted to wait till the dog sits after finding the Animal ... but now it would appear the Dog's have lost the ability to accept a Treat after finding the animal ... or walks past the animal showing that is lost the scent.
