Default does your boxer catch?

Just curious does your boxer catch toys, treats or anything? My dh is trying to teach ours to catch. Archer will attempt and will catch about 60% of treats . Bella will not even attempt to catch she just lets them bounce off her face they will both chase balls but not catch and frisbees just forget it they watch it fly and are like OK whats next

Yes, Daisy catches balls. We haven't tried with a frisbee yet because we don't have any place to work with her (no fence).

I haven't tried with treats, that sounds like a fun game!

Mine has shown no interest in chasing anything.

She catches hell when she lets the ninjas come in and snatch kleenex out of my nightstand drawer Sorry, I couldn't help it - she will catch food if it's something really tasty. If I toss her a piece of dry kibble she will just watch it drop and then saunter over and eat it. She tries to catch her frisbee and sometimes she does, but she is never going to be one of those fabulous frisbee catchers you see on tv

When I go to throw something Morgan is already on the run but she never looks back to see where it is to try to catch it.

Blues catches treats, balls, frisbees, you name it. If it's in flight, he can get it. He wasn't good with the treats at first and missed more than he caught but experience has fully corrected that. He can also catch soccer balls between his paws.

Laila is a great catcher! She is especially good at catching treats and balls.

My boy likes to catch tennis balls but does not bring them back to you. He wants you to chase him for it.
