Rasse Yeah, fix the nollie and you get them down. One thing I noticed was that you bent your front foot on the jump which made you go down instead of up. But that gets fixed once you get the nollie. A good nollie also makes it easier to deliver the rotation force from your upper body to your legs.

Watch this tutorial here (Snowboard Trick Tip: Front Flip - YouTube) at 0:38 and that's the main part you're missing. Apart from that, as already mentioned you aren't pushing against the jump ramp and that's kind of killing your technique right at the start.

I'd really recommend just learning them off cat tracks on a powder day instead of trying them off jumps. They're way easier to learn off something more flat like a cat track instead of trying to learn them off a kicker.
I see! Now that you pointed it out, my lack of nollie is very obvious. Thanks as always.

Here's some clips of me trying and not making it work =(

readimag You are soaking up to much of the jump on the first video, when you rock back and then forward. You almost have it just dont try it on such a steep take off till you really get it down. Cat tracks are the best to try it off starting out as it is almost a drop off.

Rasse This trick is a lot about timing, specially when done from a jump. A bit too late and you lose half of the rotation speed. A bit early and you hit your head on the top of the jump. So you may be starting the rotation too late. Once you get your timing and nollie on lock, it's an easy and a super fun trick. That said, a video would be nice to really know the problem. We are just guessing here..

MarshallV82 Pop UP instead of throwing yourself forward.

Need a video though, but that's the issue I see with most people

readimag Yeah tame dogs are easy to do once you get the nollie down and shoulder roll down. I do them off cat tacks a lot along with the rollers after a jump. Like everyone is saying video will help a lot but sounds like you are forcing the trick to much without enough pop.

As far as tamedogs go, you don't need to do wildcats/backflips first, you can start with tamedogs.

For what you're doing wrong though, we don't know unless we have video of you, but likely it's lack of pop from your nollie (you don't really need much speed to do a tamedog). Most people get the 'cartwheel' motion, but they miss the nollie part which is what really helps with your rotation.
