Plus, this is kinda cute I think.

Oh and you can probably tell in that video that our lovely day went from lovely to snowy. We got there and it just started pouring snow. I was lucky I use my thick coat for disc dog stuff because it hurts my back otherwise.
That looks great!

I've been so super pleased with Jackson. A dog who did not even show interest in frisbee now just loves it and begs to go play. AND he's now consistently catching throws like this:



Nothing super impressive, as far as distance, etc, but I'm so happy with my little man. He used to catch maybe 1 in every 5 throws. Now he's catching like 4 in every 5. And honestly my throwing needs a lot of work.

He really is more hesitant to catch the plastic discs, but this small soft ChuckIt one has been perfect for catching, even though it doesn't throw as nicely.

The huge amounts of ice covering the lawn finally melted and we can play disc again! It feels like it has been a while. Really nice to get back into it. Onyx absolutely looooves disc, they are her favourite.

I'm glad this thread is being resurrected! Definitely going to need some inspiration!

Babyblue5290 that is super cute! And Jacksonsmom, he looks great, that's awesome you guys have made so much progress.

Britt, what kind of disc do you use for Jackson? My mom has a Coton de Tulear pup that I think would be really into disc, but he's real shy about big, hard plastic (understandable since he's so little!!!).

This one^

He will play with the hard discs, but won't catch them from farther distances, he lets them drop first THEN runs back lol. But he is definitely less hesitant to catch the Chuckit one.

Siri was OBSESSED with the Chuckit disc before she went to hard discs. OBSESSED!

Yay, the snow and ice is gone from our yard so we can play disc again! We really slacked this winter, and had to brush up on some stuff. Took some video the other day...sorry she keeps going out of frame, I sold my wide angle lens so now it's really hard to take video when there isn't someone manning the camera

She looks so great!!! You have some killer leg weaves too and I love her spin both ways. Also like the stand stay a lot.

Our minds also think alike "Not freezing anymore? No snow? NO SHOES!"

Fergus meeting the disc! He makes me laugh, he's such a puppy. And going to need to get a drop going on because he's got quite a grip when tugging and doesn't like the let go. Ever.
