When we added our first dog to our family, we had no idea what impact she would have on our lives. She was very high-energy, and we weren't sure how to handle her. We tried taking her to local obedience classes, but the instructor's techniques weren't effective. We needed something else. We purchased a floppy flyer at a local pet store. The first time we threw it, she caught it out of the air! No prior training, she was a natural. We finally found the outlet we needed to channel her energy. We continued to play backyard frisbee almost daily for about 3 years, and we had a blast.
We started searching for other canine activities, by going to various pet-related expos and demonstrations. At an event in 2006, we visited the booth of a small disc-dog club. We talked with them and discovered that frisbee/disc dog was actually an organized sport, with various events throughout the world. We attend our first disc-dog event in 2006, and came home with a 2nd Place Ribbon in Distance/Accuracy (Toss/Fetch). Since that time, we've added 2 more dogs to our family, and have won over 400 awards in the disc-dog sport. All 3 dogs are Skyhoundz World Finalists and 2 are USDDN National/World Finalists.
In 2010, we started to offer the training that was missing from the sport, as a way to help others experience the joys of playing frisbee/disc with a canine companion. Before you take that "crazy" dog to a shelter, join us to find a great alternative to the sometimes destructive behavior high-energy dogs can exhibit. Every dog needs a job!
