Default High flying dogs!

I took pictures of my dogs one of our last outings with the frisbee. It is a challenge to throw it and take pictures at the same time lol. They're cell phone pictures too that aren't the very best, but it is fun to share! One day I will get a nice camera... one day.

My favorite picture is the last one where everyone has a frisbee I loved the background in your pictures with the trees and just noticed you are from Boise. Boise is sooo beautiful. My son lives in North Boise.

Looks like very happy dogs!

There's a church not too far from my house where they are okay with us letting our dogs offleash for playing fetch or frisbee as long as we clean up after them and avoid where they have events. It's nice in the summer because they have an irrigation ditch that is full of water. Plenty of trees, shade.

They were all happy to get to play. I try to throw one frisbee per dog but the puppy likes to follow the others and when I first toss, both my older dogs go after the frisbee too so it takes us a time or two before they figure it out.

Boise is beautiful! So many hidden great places in the city. Having the river that runs through town is really nice too. Very dog friendly city.

Cool! Unfortunately Vicky is still young to do so that she can hardly catch it before it touches the ground, but never gives it back..
How did you teach them to get the stuff you throw back to you

With my golden, I taught him when he was really young as part of a recall game. I would toss a rope toy then ask him to bring it to mommy, while scooting backward and clapping. Leia and Doyle have learned through watching the other dogs who play fetch. The game is more fun when the toy can be thrown. Having multiple toys to distract them with another helps too.

Young dogs are pretty impressionable when it comes to their elders lol. Doyle has learned how to fetch, swim and play frisbee from my older dogs. It also helps that I played it with him in the house too. Not as many places to go lol. For Doyle I also had him drag a leash for a time. If he tried to play keep away, I would step on it and call him back to me again. Only needed it for a few sessions.

Thank you! Btw I have wanted to mention, I love the name of your collar business and that you have a dog named Fraggle. Totally loved Fraggle Rock as a kid.

Awh, thanks! Ironically, I had no idea what Fraggle Rock *was* when I named the shop. Frag was named after the frag grenade!

That is something that I wouldn't have known about lol. Always can learn something new every day! My roommate nicknamed his Afghan the Fraggle because living with him is a lot like living with a muppet.
