My German Shepherd watches my Phantom fly with great interest. But that’s about it. She doesn’t chase it, but just seems annoyed with all the prop noise that it disturbed her nap.
But, I hand catch 100% anyway to avoid any surprises.
I also have a Shepherd and she seems to share your dog’s opinion. The only thing that really gets a rise out of her is startup noise, she goes and sniffs twice and lays back down.
