    try some different toys, squeaky toys, bells, tugs etc and then try her with each one and see what reaction you get. Once you get a positive reaction, build on that with lots of praise and continue

    Otherwise try looking up some trainers websites for ideas or Youtube - here is a cute little video

    That dog seems like "OMFG this womans voice is so annoying ... stop talking".

    She might just be still feeling out things, or might be just content with being with you.

    In much the same way some dogs are "dog dogs", whilst others are "people dogs". Not all dogs play with toys all the time.

    Generally easiest way is to hype them up, some dogs that is easier than others though.

    Our Lab is 8 and she much prefers to just to carry around and have things in her mouth. She'll chase after something if you toss it, but then often sits down to chill and chew on it. The only toy she brings back is her Kong Wubba floating toy.

    Else soft toys which she prefers to clean/nibble on/hit the squeakers on. Every so often she'll help herself to her self-serve toybox and pull out another toy to play with.

    Some toys get better reactions that others, and without training she knows the name sof all her toys (if we tell her to get "specific toy").
