Well, here we are trying it out with a soft disc while I try to figure out where to get a real one. I think I'm going to have to work her up to harder plastic because she completely balks at the idea of even carrying my Ultimate disc. I know it is harder, larger, and heavier than a canine disc, but she has a real aversion to it. So I think I will go out and buy a rubber disc and then a very soft canine disc.

Anyway, we're just trying to make the disc fun here. I want her to let it go when I ask and take it out of the "air" with me holding it. It's basically a glorified tug toy at this point. We did have to banish Summit for trying to join in the fun. He got asked to go into the house to wait his turn. Maybe I'll have TWO disc dogs!

That was so great to watch! She seems like she's sure having fun! I'm super excited for you to do this, you better keep updates happening.

And the dog discs are going to be SO much softer on her mouth than the ultimate frisbee's. But I know what you mean, Traveler by nature isn't a huge tugger and he doesn't like plastic so I had to build him up a lot with softer stuff and just really really short sessions. He's tugging on them now though like a pro! He still prefers the throw over the tug but getting him tugging has upped his drive for them a lot.

Comp tomorrow guys! Super excited and nervous! Wish us luck!

Good luck!

And great work with your grey! I'd love to see you do some disc with your hound(s)!

Good luck Linds! Videos needed!

Bought a West Paw rubber frisbee. Seemed like a big hit for the 2 or 3 seconds that I let her play with it at the field. But I wanted her tired so I just threw the chuck it a million times. Will have to really test it out tomorrow.

I was inspired by some of the awesome recent disc photos, so I wanted to try my hand at taking some of my own. I'm pleased how these turned out, despite not showing too many actual catches. Cohen is such a good girl, and she tries so hard for me. She loves the rebounds and vaults.







I really wish that last one was in focus. Gonna have to try and catch it again some evening. So fun!

Did you just take those with a tripod on a self timer? I cannot even imagine trying to do that! I would get so frustrated! Love those though, especially the lighting. Very neat effect!

If by "tripod" you mean "the ground", yes.

Thanks guys! It wasn't too hard taking these solo, but I'm sure it would have been a whole lot easier with an assistant.
