Getting him to return the Frisbee was probably the hardest part. First I had to get him to drop it and then drop it where I was. Catching was no problem. At first, I had 2 Frisbees. He would just stand there and I would throw and then he would drop when the next one was ready. Then I worked out that he would get a treat on top of the Frisbee. Then all we did was return. I would roll it or throw it. it didn't matter, if he wanted a treat, he had to return it. Getting him to do it once was a challenge. I had to literally put it in his mouth over and over and get him to go back to where we threw it so he could get his treat. once they do the target behavior, its easy. Now I can just say "go get it" and he will find the Frisbee and bring it to me. He will return about 4 or 5 times without a treat but once he sees there is no treats, he runs away with it.
Great job! Cooper looks like he enjoys it. I'm lucky Jaia (avatar) did it automatically.
