How to teach a dog to catch a frisbee
If you ask me, the best play for Frisbee-shaped play things is the one called “catch a frisbee.” When I give my puppy his toy, the last thing I want to see is him chasing the frisbee back and forth until he ends up doing just that – playing catch with it. To help a dog learn to catch a frisbee I can’t recommend enough starting off slow.
It will seem to you that you are helping him learn something when you throw the frisbee, but actually, you’re just providing him with food, and he’ll learn to learn.
It’s important that you don’t just throw the frisbee, so your puppy gets the whole idea of catching. Start out simply. Throw the frisbee a few feet in front of your dog. He’ll learn to follow it and he may even try to catch it. You want him to see you do the following:
throw the frisbee
make it into the r
wt until he has enough of a lead on it to grab it
Once your puppy is catching the frisbee, take the frisbee away for a few minutes. If he gets into the habit of chasing it, just throw it agn and do not throw it near him until he catches it. It can be a bit frustrating, but it’s better to do it this way than to constantly keep repeating the previous step. If it’s still frustrating, you may want to go in a slightly different direction, but if your puppy is learning, he’ll catch the frisbee just fine.
The key to teach a dog to catch a frisbee is that he has to learn to follow the frisbee. So if he tries to play catch with you and catches the frisbee he follows you. Don’t put the frisbee in a place where he can only follow it. If your puppy can follow the frisbee, he will follow the frisbee. You can do a lot more than teach your dog to catch the frisbee. You can teach him a million other things. Just have him follow the frisbee. You’re teaching a skill, not a command.
Another good place to start with your dog is the Frisbee-catching game. Get the frisbee and give your dog the lead. You throw the frisbee and wt for your dog to follow it. Be patient. Don’t throw it towards him. You want him to come after it and not run away when he catches it. After he has caught it, release the lead. Now you want your dog to start chasing the frisbee. Don’t run away. Make him chase the frisbee and not you. After a few minutes, try agn, this time you throw the frisbee and your dog has to follow you. You keep doing this over and over until he has learned to follow the frisbee when you throw it. You can do this with any frisbee and any time you throw it. The best frisbees to do this with are: Frisbee, Frisbee Fly, Frisbee Disc, Frisbee Dog, etc.
Teach your dog tricks with the Frisbee in your hand. Make sure the Frisbee is not dirty. You need to teach your dog to follow and catch a frisbee so it will look pretty. If your dog follows and catches a frisbee when you throw it, he will not do that when you throw it the second time. Don’t give him the same frisbee each time. Have him run after the frisbee with you holding it. If he runs to the frisbee and stops when he catches it, that’s great. Then give it to him. If he does not run to the frisbee and stops when he catches it, that’s great. Then you must take the frisbee away from him so he will learn that he cannot have it after he catches it. As your dog catches the frisbee, prse him. If he tries to keep it for himself, tell him NO! Then give him the frisbee agn. This process should be repeated many times. If your dog really wants to get a good reward, you can give it to him after a long time and let him keep it until he gives it to you. If he really wants to get the reward, he may catch the frisbee, hold it close to his nose and say “YUM”. Once he’s done that, give him the reward. As your dog keeps catching the frisbee, prse him and give him the reward. After a while, give the frisbee to him so he will have to throw it agn and follow the frisbee. If he can catch it and throw it repeatedly, then you can let him keep the frisbee and then give it to you.
Once you’ve trned your dog to catch the frisbee, you can also trn him to stop playing when you say “NO!” You can tell him to sit and hold the frisbee. When he doesn’t give the frisbee to you, you can take it away. Then give him prse and treat him. Repeat this process as he doesn’t give it to you. This should be used after all other trning methods are complete and your dog is getting frustrated when playing.
When your dog knows when you say “NO!”, he will not come running to play with him agn. Also, after your dog learns how to catch the frisbee, you must make sure you do not drop it so he will continue to follow the frisbee and repeat the trning process. Always keep
