to teach a dog better Frisbee skills

In this entry where I showed off Sadie's Frisbee skills, I mentioned that she isn't doing so well with bringing the Frisbee back to me; she preferred to take the evil disc off somewhere to a corner of the yard where she could shake the devil out of it and, hopefully, kill it.

Well, Betty left this comment on that particular entry:  "She has the makings of a frisbee catching champion! Use two frisbees. That's what I do with Koda. He will keep one, but if I have one, he wants the one I have so he'll come back and drop the one in his mouth so I can throw the other one."

Today we were out and about, and I bought a cheap Frisbee at Walmart.

It works!  Sadie brings the Frisbee back to me every time now.  If she drops it a little to early, she will even go back, pick it up, and drop it at my feet.  Thanks, Betty!

Good for Sadie. Now you should buy a bottle of the bubbles that children blow and watch Sadie try to burst every one of them. Our Jake did that plus he loved the frisbee also. Helen

Luke prefers to watch frisby and ball. He thinks it's a side show.  Anne
