One of the most common things that people ask is how to teach your dog to catch a frisbee. They say my dog will chase the frisbee while it’s in the air and they’ll watch it and they’ll get right up to it, but then they just wait for it to hit the ground and don’t catch it, and it astonishes me how many people are discouraged by this and just give up and say, man, I guess my dog is just a lot of frisbee dog.
They don’t want to grab it out of the air. Well, the bottom line is it’s almost the best analogy I can make is it’s almost like expecting an infant to learn how to walk before they crawl.
In other words, 1,000 percent of all frisbee dogs will always do that in the beginning. If they’re not doing it, you don’t have a dog. Today, I’m going to show you how to teach your dog to catch a frisbee in the air. Now I’m going to be showing you with Indiana Jones, who has just recently learned how to catch the frisbee consistently. I’m going to show you exactly how we taught her to do that.
Alright, so remember, the first thing we do when we’re teaching our dog frisbee is take that very good, so she’s taking it. She knows how to grab it from the rib. That is perfect. The next thing we do with our dog is we encourage them to come around. Remember the reason we teach our dogs to come around like this is to give them a running start, so we’ve got to take it.
We’ve got come around. Take it very good. It’s important to remember that we don’t just teach our dog to take it and then throw it. As far as we can remember, it’s all about baby steps. Don’t ask for too much face it in. You can’t get from A to Z without hitting all those letters in between. We have to get them to take it out of the air wallets in the air.
Clumps up first. Does that make sense? What’s this and take it very good and detour it so they’ve got to catch it in the air like that. First, yes, good girl. Catch it! She’s looking good, yeah! She did it! Good job, indeed.
Remember guys, the crazier you act with your dog, the better they’re gonna appreciate it, the better they’re gonna play with them. Don’t teach them to have a good time with it, and that’s how you teach your dog to catch a frisbee out the air.
Do this with your dogs, especially if they have a lot of energy, especially if they love to fetch. They will love you forever. It’s also good to keep them in shape and keep them happy.
That’s what having a dog is all about. It’s not about the tricks. It’s not about all the stuff they do. It’s about having a better relationship with our animals. That’s why we teach them things like this.
