What is the difference between the two?

Also any help in getting Fred (vizsla) to jump more flat as opposed to jumping up? he hits water butt first, still went 16" 8' in third event.

Any help and answers is great

Thanks

In Catch It you toss the toy. The dog must catch the toy in the air.
In Fetch It a bumper is affixed to a boom that is moved laterally further down the length of the pool with each round. The vertical height is fixed. The dog must remove the toy from the boom.

My dog had the opposite problem but I would work on speed with him. as long as your dog gets more speed the angle wont hurt so much. I would work on toy drive with him on the land. (Plus with more dock experience and confidence his speed will go up) But I also haven't seen your dog jump so I am sorry if my info don't help.

Good Luck

What is a good toy for fetch it. We watched catch it in Dearborn. Seems that the same toy would work. I looked at Katies Bumpers (link to site) would one be a good toy. If not what should we get. What is the best way to pratice this on our own dock?

Thanks again for all the help.

Will work on speed. He isnt 2 yet, has a bad case of ADD. He jumped almost 9 feet from a stand still in his first jump. He lost focus. Too many distractions. Will keep at it. Vizslas are very fast if we can keep him focused.

I've never done it, but it seems like a heavy toy would work best (easier to throw, flies a straighter course, etc). I think a few people use double-Wubbas.
