    Alright so I'm pretty sure I have a future disc dog in my hands and I need some help.

    Outlaw is a 4 month old field bred Lab, he weighs about 43-44 lbs right now. He is CRAZY over his frisbee and could care less about most toys when the frisbee is out. He has a high play drive and has shown potential for vaulting and such.

    But I'm not pushing much for that since he is a young puppy and has a lot of growing to do.

    Does anyone has advice for teaching him to catch the disc? He chases it and will go after it no matter little or far it is thrown. He just can't seem to catch it in the air yet, I know he's young. But I'm hoping to find a way to improve my throws.

    Any videos, tips, links?

    He's way young right now, but you may be able to a handful of rollers as well as teaching some good foundation skills and freestyle moves. Some basics that spring to mind are around, through your leg, spin, and of course impulse control.
