Tucker had a few hundred treats bounce off his nose before he started catching them,just keep it up and he will get it eventually. I started close to his mouth like 1-2 inches away once he got the idea we quickly move to many feet away. Some dogs are natural catchers other need to learn it, like Little Joe and Tucker. I'm sure he will get it just keep it up.Little Joe still won't catch anything. I've thrown treats that bounced right off his nose, and he just sits there looking at me, and then will reach down and take the treat from the floor if I don't take it away. I can't decide if he's being incredibly stupid, or incredibly smart in figuring out that he can also get treats later by playing dead and not having to exert himself too much.
