  1. Specific frisbee training question

    Dog Training Forum
    I've trained my 6 mo year old Mini Aussie puppy to catch a frisbee in the air, but only if it's a really short distance or if I use commands to move him in position away from me so he's far enough away to catch before I throw. I can't seem to get him to either start running before I throw the...
  2. Frisbee training & 1st year of dog's life

    Dog Training Forum
    I was watching this excellent video on how to train a dog to catch a Frisbee, and halfway through I heard we shouldn't be promoting a puppy to jump during the first year. I'm assuming that's due to the shock on the joints, but it may also be because during that same year we are trying to...
  3. Aussie Flying Disc issues!

    General Dog Forum
    I've been trying to teach my young Aussie frisbee and I've been happy with the results. He can catch it straight ahead with no problem, and is starting to catch it thrown at a slight angle away from him, but he doesn't get chasing it down and catching it at a distance yet. While I'd appreciate...

    General Dog Forum
    Do thter breed rival BC's at Frisbee? Would a mixed breed dog with BC be inferior to a pure bred? Is there much difference when training is begun? This isn't for competition just play. We already adopted a toller who shows no interest. There are 6, 9m month nad 1 years old Border Collies up...

    Dog Sports/Show Forum
    So my Border collie benji is a fetch addict at 6.5 months of age. Returns the frisbee every time and is getting better at catching it out of the air. The only problem is that he doesnt chase after it while its in my hand. He wont circle around me to get a running start. He just stares at me...

    I have a german shepherd x labrador retriever mix (DANTE) pup who will turn 1 in a few days. He was a shelter rescue. The first two weeks, he was a shy and afraid guy. I spent lots of time with him, and took him around to dog parks and friends houses to meet other people and dogs. He would...

    I have a 1-year-old male Boston Terrier, my first dog, and it amazes when I hear things like "Wow, I didn't think Bostons jumped in water to retrieve things" or "wow, your Boston likes hiking?" or "your Boston plays frisbee?" He's obsessed with playing frisbee. He loves hiking. He loves walking...
