How to train your dog to catch a Frisbee

sketchandflash.com Due to many requests, I decided to make a four minute video on how to train your dog to catch a disc using my newest dog, Blitz.

Why take the time to do this with your dog? -Helps get your dog in shape. If your dog is overweight, you’re cutting out years of their life. -Can help get
