Nia doesn't catch food cuz she doesn't know what it is and hasn't decided if she wants to eat it yet without a great inspection lol.

She's really really good at catching toys like tennis balls, donut plushies, etc. 9/10 usually.

Jackson is amazing! LOL... he's such a food hound, his eye NEVER leaves the food so yeah almost anything I throw at him, he catches. He can also easily catch toys, balls, etc.

Tucker actually wont catch food unless he knows what it is, if he isnt sure he'll let it bounce off his head and then inspect it on the floor.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

I forgot to add - Tipper's ability to catch regressed mightily after I tricked her into taking a pill that way. The look on her face when she swallowed the pill was priceless though. For a month or so after that she would either let treats hit the ground and then inspect or catch it and carry it off to a corner so she could look at it there. Lol.

Bodhi, ace. Never misses.

Benji does what Orson does.

Milo will catch a ball or toy 95% of the time. Food is a little less reliable, but he doesn't care about it much.

I thought both my fosters to catch right away, potential adopters love it. My eskie caught food, too.

It depends on what it is, I've found.. and Cali isn't able to catch too much considering her x-small ball is nearly too big for her mouth already.

Moses is pretty good at catching food, and used to be huge on fetching, etc until he lost his favourite ball when he was maybe two years old. (we could never find the same ball in the white/red colours.. he's never been interested in a ball since!)

Cali makes attempts to catch the balls, but I think if her mouth was a tad bigger, she'd be more successful. She shows no desire for catching food though, she's content to wait for me to hand it to her. (somewhat haha!)

Summer thinks throwing things at dogs is abuse.

Mia will catch tennis balls well. She doesn't jump for them really, just pops up and nabs them. But she will not catch treats at all. Doesn't even try.

All three never miss. Ball or food it doesn't matter.Victor won the treat catching contest at his Pets for LIfe party. All the dogs sat in a line, and each handler tossed a bit of kibble, take one step back. At the very end, it was just the two of us.

Neccy always snorts after she catches it for emphasis to what a good job she did.

Rudy.. well he's special. He will catch a toy but a ball? No way! Dixie will catch anything and Buster is good at catching treats/food but not a ball as he's not that kind of dog.
