I'm glad you were able to teach you dog how to do this because it is so much fun. Have you dog do it standing and sitting for variation (you have to be accurate with your throw though). Also teach your dog the meaning of the word *back*, so you can get her in the proper position to catch a longer through. Mine likes to stand too close waiting for the throw, so I say "back, back, back, back" until she is in the right spot.
