You want the dog to see the Disc as a toy for the two of you to play together. But you want him to want that toy. You want to teach him to get the disc when you fetch it. Some dogs might have to or need more Fetch Training then others. Start with very short, as in you can still reach the item, tosses for your dog.
Use the same word or phrase each time you want the fetching behavior from your dog. I use "fetch it up". When the frisbee is flying and you will first do this for your dog hanging onto the frisbee with your hands moving it for the dog to jump up a bit and get, you might use another word. I use, I know, I know, something as simple as "Frisbeeeeeee".
I drag the word out to excite the dog. Most people will have to buy a few different types to play with their own dog before they find the best fit for the two of them. Be warned, when you compete, most Disc Dog Clubs will specify the type you must use for the competition. Find out early, long before the date of the event and practice with your dog with that type of Disc.
I got such a kick out of one of the Disc Manufactures saying that " I remember when Nerf Balls came out on the Market yeah, I am old. They were billed as an indoor ball, then came other sponge toys from the same Company I do remember that parents either loved them or hated them Now I see they are making a Dog Frisbee.
I have not bought one of these to play with my dog, so I can not really give you a hands one description, but here is what the advertisement says:. Nerf Thermoplastic Rubber Flying Disc Dog Toy is very colorful so while having that throws time and he misses he is sure to find it in the grass. Make sure you feel the Disc yourself, look it all over, before you decide which one to buy to use with your dog to play. Once your dog will fetch the Frisbee on the ground. Take the disc in your hand and move it, telling the dog the word s you use for it to fetch something Say both words over and over until the dog grabs the frisbee out of your hand, tell the dog "GOOD!
Another good way, faster in my opinion, to teach your dog to catch the frisbie, is to teach your dog to "Catch" food treats as you toss them to the dog as it sits in front of you at a short distance. You can see our Tricks Page here at this site for full instructions to teach "Catch". You will also need a Release word, so that the dog lets go of the disc when you what it to give it to you. Many people use the word "Drop". Open the dog's mouth if you need to to take the Frisbee from it as you say the word.
Keep the dog on the ground or lower to the ground for the first several lessons. This keeps him wanting to play more and more. Later as you throw the Frisbee higher, the dog will have a clue of where to look for it when it leaves your hands. Once you and your dog get going with this sport, for fun or competition, you are going to find it is an addiction. The dogs have so much fun! They are getting great excersize. And for you, it will be such a site to watch. Beauty in motion. Whatever you do, do not get in a hurry to teach catching a Frisbee in the air too soon.
Take your time with training. Pups should not be jumping too high, it is not good for their joints, particularly hips and elbows. Like all training the more time you spend the more the dog will learn and remember. You need to remember that this is a game to your dog. Have fun. Make it fun. Keep it fun. By keeping it fun, and stopping the game before your dog is tired of it, your dog will always want more of this game!

There must be a lot of German Shepherd Dogs that play Frisbie. This statue looks a little general, as far as breed it could be to me, but it is named, by the Manufacturer "German Shepherd Dog".

This area of the page was printed, in full, in the Frisbee Disc Dog Newsletter. I was very tickled when the Newsletter came out. While I do throw a frisbie for our now dogs, we no longer compete Competing is so much fun and the people there are some of "Dog Event" best!
Training Tips. After your dog is excited about playing Frisbee and is obedience trained to come when called, meeting friends at local parks to play with your dogs together is great fun. Meeting together with your dogs is also good training for Disc Dog Competition.
Your dog will need to learn to focus on you and catching the Frisbee even with distractions. Dogs that have a "job" catching a Frisbee will spend less time barking, digging, and getting into what we humans call trouble. Take sports cones and a ' measuring tape to a large flat grassy field and mark off distances so that you can see how far you are throwing the Frisbee and at what distance your dog is catching the Frisbee. This will help you in your competition strategy. Our desire to be reassured about what is going to happen in our lives.

Mole would desert his commitment to Toad in order to make Ratty feel good. But Rat knows that they have made a promise to Toad. He, however, is very much committed to his home.

There is still time to follow me. Indeed you will follow me. And most importantly the way to handle the fact that one has missed out, or that one cannot have what one wanted in life.

What is the difference between the seemingly rejection of the author's drawing of a sheep and the rejection he experienced of his "Drawing One"? Why do you think the Little Prince says, "That is exactly the way I wanted it" 10? The narrator says, "I should have liked to say: 'Once upon a time there was a little prince who lived on a planet that was scarcely any bigger than himself, and who had need of a sheep.
This would have given a much greater air of truth to his story or so he says. Why does he buy some paints and crayons after six years? Why is the flower so important to the prince?
