Update on Teaching CATCH

I htought I would brag about our progress. I say 'our' because while Charley is way better at catching, I am also getting better at throwing!

I can now throw something from a few feet away and he will catch it. He needs to know what is being thrown at him and seems to have a better success rate if I fake throw a few times first.

I have to admit, I got a little help from my trainer, where Charley also goes for day care once a week... She has the patience of an angel, and a much better aim!

You know the expression 'he throws like a girl' ? They may have been watching me when they came up with it...

Next week we move on to non-edibles. Charley got a certificate for a free toy from Petsmart, so I'm hopping they have some itty bitty tennis balls I can buy.
