D5000 fast subject capture, help please.

Hi, I have recently purchased a Nikon D5000 with the kit 18-55 lens & not having used a DSLR before I am on a rather steep learning curve,

I am trying to capture my dog Bazz catching his ball in mid air & although I have had a cople of good pictures out of about 70 taken most are out of focus like the ones I have added to this message,

My question is, what would be the best setting for this type of shot & would I need to try & pan with the dog or try & focus on the ball?

Dont worry I know I have a lot to learn but Bazz is getting on & I would love to have a great photo of him doing his favorite thing before he gets to old,
Many thanks, Jon.
