Force fetching

At what age/ level of training sequence do I force fetch? And is there a video that y'all recommend or is it something that only a seasoned trainer should handle?

Re: Getting the pup to want to retrieve.

My gsp did the same for a while, so I took an old dead dove that I had in the deep freeze, stuck it in a leather glove ducktaped closed. That also cured his attempt to chew the frozen bird. When Im done training I just stick it back in the freezer inside th glove.
