    My 7 month Aussie finally caught his frisbee in the air!!

    Are you having trouble with your dog and a frisbee all I can say is patience I never thought Gunnar would catch one I thought I was doing something wrong then one day he just did it!!!

    Need tips?

    That's great that he caught it in the air. Considering Gunner is a puppy make sure you don't throw it to high, because he's still growing.:)

    Thank you Dogster!:) I do a lot of that now, but I'm gonna try the fire game tomorrow. He loves the frisbee he just can't catch it.

    Toby loves the Frisbee, because we used to play tug with it before he could catch it.

    Yeah!!! Congrats to all frisbee catching dogs and there owners!!

    Did you know that your way off throwing the frisbee actually influences the catching part off the dog.
    The better you throw the frisbee the better and safer a dog can catch it.
    And there are dogs that only will catch a good thrown frisbee, and don't even attempt to catch a not so well thrown one. And then there are dogs like Dazzle, who sometimes forget to put out the landig gear..

    So if there is one big tip in the dogfrisbee world, learn how to throw s good frisbee :D And thay part you can do withouts dog. And than add your dog when you can do it..
    Try some other types of throwing aswell, there fun!!!!

    hihi all good things come with practis!
    On youtube there are plenty vids on trowing. And on the official sites off the dogfrisbee there probably will also be the basic info off different throwing styles.
    Let us know how the frisbee is going!

    That's Missy, if I throw it bad she won't try catching it.

    Like in the movie there a few basic throws. Suvhs as the backhand, side arm (or hand), floaters etc.
    From all these you can make variations. Throw one over your leg, beneith your leg and so on, and you get a new variation. People still make new ones so it's a sport in progress yeah!
  18. madeleine Experienced Member

    It really does, especially when you want to do it safe.
    You and the dog can get injured when there is little attention to the details.

    Yea seeing as Gunnar is still young I throw the frisbee lower to the ground e doesn't really jump its more of a running leap!

    :eek: Um....So is there a special class I take to learn how to throw a frisbee? LOL I can't imagine how long it takes to learn that many types of throwing, and there is no way I can learn those on my own. :oops:
