I would like to teach Winnie to catch. My last dog was an amazing dog but bless her she was absolutely useless at catching anything. Treats, balls, ropes you name it she dropped it. She just couldn't do it. It's not hugely important but comes in useful sometimes. So I ask Winnie to sit a couple of feet away and I show her the treat (I'm using something big enough for her to see and follow but small enough to catch). I say 'catch' and toss the treat not too high but around her nose/mouth area. Most of the time it bops her on the nose or head. A few times she caught it and I made a fuss of her but not sure if she caught it because she could or because it just happened by chance. I don't want to continue doing this if she can't catch them as they fall very close to her and she ends up eating them before I get to them. Is there a better way of doing this or do I just have to keep going until she gets better but has free treats in the meantime. Her 'leave it' is a bit hit and miss. If they fly a bit further away I can get a 'leave it' in but if it's right by her paws then her tongue is out before I even get a chance to say it. Any advice on this please?
