Hey, look. I backed up and taught an actual foundation skill
The Kong disc is super soft and flexible. It bends and folds in half, making it easier to pick up off hard surfaces. I paid $11 (Petsmart's online price; the store's shelf price is $17). Bodie loves playing with it and has absolutely no problem picking it up -- even when it's landed right side up on the concrete patio. I just wish it was a tad bit easier to throw. I might pick up a Supersonic disc next time. Or maybe even look for one of the original Frisbee discs. I saw a photo of one on this website: http://tossandfetch.com/how-to-select-competition-discs-for-your-frisbee-dog-update/Also, please stick to either disc like toys that are soft . . .
Oh, well in that case we just have time issues, LOL! Good to know! So maybe someday.Nope, they are absolutely allowed to drop the disc at some distance, though you might waste a little time having to go get it - and you're absolutely allowed to play with just one disc, and in fact some dogs require it. No big deal in either case, at least for Toss and Fetch and UpDog. Heck in UpDog you can (and people do) play games with 8 week old puppies, 15 year old dogs and all rollers.
No issue at all, then. In fact 'drop in front of me' is my GOAL with Kiran and Molly. It's actually faster for me than directly in my hand. As long as it's in front of me and reasonably close/arms reach as opposed to 20 feet away.Oh, well in that case we just have time issues, LOL! Good to know! So maybe someday.
She drops it in front of you and will "nose it" toward you. She is very set in her Border Collie repetitive ways so bring to hand probably won't happen. This would be Toss and Fetch. Haven't seen any UpDog here.

Mostly that, but also that I have a much harder time getting a grip I like on the disc when they're shoving it in my hand, and the time it takes me to regrip/reposition is probably slightly longer than it takes me to scoop the disc up the way I want and immediately throw.Is this because they are faster if they just drop mid-run and wrap around your body and out? Or is there another reason?
