My dog never plays fetch properly at the park?

He can play fetch perfectly fine at home and in the garden but as soon as we get to the dog park he won’t play properly. He chases after it but then leaves it. I thought maybe he gets overwhelmed/distracted and just wanders off to do other things. Anybody else’s dog do this?

    So stop doing it! He is not as well trained to retrieve, or come when called....... as you thought.

    I NEVER take my dogs to dog parks. Too may out of control dogs there, too many out-to-lunch, irresponsible owners; too high a possibility of injury to MY dog. Only the lazy & brainless (which can't think of, or find any other place or way to exercise their dog) - use dog parks.
