Best ways to train your dog to play Frisbee!
Since I was a little kid, I have always wanted a dog that would play Frisbee.Â Of course all of my dogs growing up would play fetch with a tennis ball; yet, when it came to a Frisbee, it was a different story.Â More often than not, they would run after it and then once it hit the ground, they'd run back to you, leaving the Frisbee behind. Â Â Now, with a pet of my own, I am on a mission to teach my dog how to play Frisbee like the pros!
So what are the tricks to train your dog for this fun game?Â Its actually quite simple. 1.)Â Â Â Start with a soft rubber flying disc. If you start off with a toy that is easy for your dog to grab and play with, the rest of the training should be simple! 2.)Â Â Â Play tug! Again, you want to first play tug with a soft disc, but then slowly move toward the hard Frisbee that you will use once the training is complete!

By doing this you will associate the Frisbee with a reward!Â After your dog understands this you can set the Frisbee upside down on the other side of the room and have him bring it to you, then put a couple pieces of kibble or a treat in there for him to eat! 4.)Â Â Â Roll the Frisbee across the floor! By this point your dog should already be interested in the Frisbee, at least enough to run after it.Â By rolling the Frisbee across the floor your dog will have no choice but to grab it correctly. The last trick to teaching your dog any lesson is repetition, repetition, repetition.Â Repeating these steps again and again will get your dog as interested in his Frisbee as he is in your old socks! Frisbee is a great way to get some exercise with your dog and it is fun too! Of course there are the dogs out there that do all the tricks and can jump five feet in the air to catch a Frisbee, but you don t have to teach your dog all the tricks; just get out and get some exercise!
