    My 6 month old pitbull won‘t give the disc back. She just sits there,
    gnawing away at it. Help!!!

    Some dogs take longer to learn to catch, especially puppies. Flash took
    about 4 months of being interested in playing disc before he would actually
    catch it in the air. Try holding the disc out in front of his nose and when
    he grabs on to it say “catch.” You can do this with a ball too. Throw the
    disc out just a tiny bit in front of him and say “catch.” Make sure to
    praise your dog whenever he puts his mouth on the disc.

    Over time some dogs will start to jump more. Usually thinner dogs will jump
    higher(but not too thin!) You can somewhat train a dog to jump for a disc
    using an agility jump and doing takes over the jump. It’s also best for
    your dog to jump so that the front paws hit the ground a bit before the
    back paws do. You never want back paws to hit the ground first. You never
    want the dog to land in a handstand position or straight up.

    I have a Border Collie puppy who is VERY interested in her frisbee. She
    prefers it over any other toy. For a while now I’ve been trying to figure
    out how to actually get her to catch it out of the air, instead of just
    chasing after it when I roll it vertically. But now I know how, and I will
    try it, so thank you! (:

    wow..I’ve never had a dog and just assumed that dogs naturally knew how to
    play catch with a ball or frisbee! Can the small dogs paly frisbee or is it
    just a game for the medium to bigger sized ones. I was thinking of buying
    my first dog and it would probably be an eskimo dog or brittany. I’ll save
    this video in case I actually do get around to getting a dog..thanks

    P.s. my australian shepherd kinda just waits for it to get low enough for
    him to just grab with his mouth…. Is it possible to teach him to jump
    high and catch it in mid-air? Or is that considered a progression from what
    he’s already doing?

    @mission762008 Nope not natural! Some dogs catch on very quickly though.
    Any size dog can do this!

    My two Border Collies(including the one in the video) started with floppy
    discs and then moved on to plastic. But beware of the hard discs in pet
    stores because many of them are actually unsafe for the dog’s mouth. It it
    is not a Wham-O(DT World), Hero, or HyperFlite disc, I cannot guarantee
    that it is safe for your dog. Happy Training! Hope the advice helps!

    This is a very helpful video. I have one dog who wasn’t at all interested
    in any kind of fetch until 7 months old. My new puppy seems likewise, but
    I’m going to use your ideas as a fun way to play with both of them. Right
    now, When I throw for the older one, the pup runs and plays tug after its
    already caught. Thanks for the tips and excellent presentation.

    @horses4eva3300 herodiscusa. c o m Check under “K9 Discs”. The Air 235 is
    my favorite and all of the “Super” Models are very durable.

    how old does my dog have to be to catch the disk? I have a Jack Rusell
    Terrier, 6 months. I bought a disc yesterday and he loves it. He lets it
    land infront of him before picking it up and coming to me. Will he slowly
    gain confidence>
