* Grant is able to stop a pissed [[TyrannosaurusRex T-Rex]] from crushing a stalled jeep (with children inside) with a flare in ''Film/JurassicPark''. Unfortunately Malcolm decides he's going to do the same thing... it doesn't go as well for him. Justified in that the rex's vision is supposed to be so bad in the dark and the rain that all it could follow was the movement of the flare.

* Attempted in ''The Lightning Thief'' against Cerberus who ignores it. Then they pull out a ball and play it completely straight.

* At one point in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3: Citadel'', Shepard attempts this on a biotic varren (a sort of Tuchankan animal broadly similar to a big, lanky, angry dog) with a ''frying pan'', that being the first thing s/he had had on hand to fend the varren off with. It ends poorly, not because the varren doesn't want to fetch, but because it throws things ''back''.

* While not deliberately done, Florence from ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', who is an uplifted wolf, as well as an extremely intelligent rocket scientist (in the sense that she's researching next-generation FTL-drives in her spare time) - is shown to be vulnerable to this. Despite being preoccupied with a major moral and technical conondrum at the time, when a ball goes bouncing by, she just goes "BALL!" and leaps after it. Having been raised as an ordinary puppy probably has a lot to do with it.

* Misho from ''KeychainOfCreation'' uses it deliberately to distract his Lunar partner, Marena. She's basically a shape-shifting fox, but it still works... it is described as "A technique developed by the ancient Solars for controlling their Lunar partners", and Misho mostly uses it to distract Marena when she's frustrated by being in heat (and him being a ChasteHero). * In earlier ''KevinAndKell'' years, this trick is used to "expose" canines that are suspected of having Domestication. This plotline is discontinued in later years when Domestication becomes more generally accepted (including [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Domestication Pride Marches]]) * In ''{{Sinfest}}'', [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=3600 Percy tries to distract Pooch using this, and not actually throwing anything]].

* A running gag in ''NightAtTheMuseum'' is that the T-rex skeleton can be distracted by throwing one of its ribs for it. [[AllAnimalsAreDogs It acts exactly a dog anyway.]]
