Default Disc dog people

I know there are a few people who play with discs. So, I took the dogs out individually, attached them to a long line, and worked on catching/grabbing the frisbee. I'm using a softer frisbee (it's not plastic it's more hard rubber) and what i was doing was just holding it and having them run, jump and grab it. then tried a couple easy catches.

How do you get a dog to get better at catching it?

Talon catches better than Artimis, though Talon I'm not letting him jump for it cause he's so young. He is more ground level catching lol

For Artimis he really has the drive to get the frisbee, which I really never thought he did! I was amazed how much he wanted to jump and get the frisbee lol So now we need to get him catchin it better.

They both do the same thing, they use their paws to sandwich it and stick it in their mouths. >_< How do you teach them to just use their mouths?

Any other hints would be cool!

I'd love to do classes, but there are none around here
