All of mine can catch, really well actually! Piper I guess is my worst, but most of the time she's good at it. Actually, awhile back I took them all out front and took pictures of them catching stuff:

Wilson is my crazy dog with catching.. he contorts his body in ways I never knew was possible in order to catch stuff. I have to be careful with him because he does NOT think before he does stuff and I swear he's going to break his neck/back/leg/something!

Macky's an ace. She has like a 98% catch rate, and manages to do it without expending more energy than necessary.

Keeva... I used to think she couldn't catch! I guess she just didn't get it. Now she's pretty good too. She's so short, though, that certain angles/tosses are hard for her. Still, she's pretty good and getting better all the time.

Blossom... She has amazingly fast reflexes and just awful coordination at this point in her life - LOL. We have to be really careful with the ball because she'll attempt a catch at all costs, and I don't want her to blow an ACL or something. So um... her catches are either really awesome, or appalling and slightly dangerous. One time she jumped for her ball, missed, but managed to bounce it back straight into my nose.

Harlow is pretty good, and usually does like, a half flip thing in order to catch said object.

Rider looks at me as if I have just done the most horrific thing on the planet if I toss a toy at him. Food he's cool with, but he doesn't catch. It just falls on the floor and then is eaten.

Elsie didn't learn to catch until we moved in with Zobby. You can throw three treats into the air at once and he'll get all of them.

She learned quick, haha.

Saxon was like that as a pup, but now is great at catching! He catches it almost every time!

Sometimes as graceful as a ballerina:

Other times, not so much...

Daisy used to be really good, then she got old & weird, and now she'll hold her mouth open & swing her head around while you're still clearly holding the treat. Ill have to get a video, it's hilarious.

Rage will catch anything, she's much like Sara's Merle girls - don't throw a pair of socks in this house unless you can count on the other person to get them.

Liz just... doesn't really catch. Ill occasionally throw something from close by & she'll grab it. Liz spends most of her time asleep.

Keena catches really well, too.

Journey can't catch at the moment if her life depended on it haha. But, none of my current dogs were good catchers either at her age.

Dance is an awesome catcher. Food, toys, whatever, she rarely misses. Ripley is pretty good at catching food, and sometimes toys are hit or miss, but mostly he has a good success rate. Keira can catch food but she can't be bothered with toys most of the time.

Rumor can catch food, she just chooses not to. If she thinks she'll miss out on whatever's being thrown by not catching it, she'll snag it. If there's no threat nearby, she just sits there and stares blankly while waiting for it to hit the floor. The latter makes her look like an idiot. -_-
