Okay, this time we are in focus. Also, a lot more space in the barn than my backyard. I think she's starting to like this disc business!

Awesome job, Krissy!

I think disc is really clicking for Cohen these days. She's catching much more consistently (partly because I've gotten way, way better at throwing) and isn't stopping to drop/flip the disc while coming back. Today I noticed her collecting herself to catch off-stride throws, and she seems to have almost given up on her wild and crazy hail mary launches that leave her no chance in hell of actually catching anything.

I've not done any tricks with her lately (still wearing too many layers to comfortably maneuver) but her long game has improved greatly. Her drive for the game is solid now. I'll try to grab a bit of footage next time I'm at the park.

Booo, I really need to buy new discs, all of mine are super chewed up and wonky, don't fly well at all. The shipping is such a kick in the pants! I want to get a bunch of Hero blems, 10 for $60 with a bag as well, but with shipping it will be just about $100 . Hard to justify right now but I neeeeeed to have discs around!

Have amazon prime by chance?

I need new discs now too. I bought a bunch of hero blems and I forget which model they are, but they're a very light/thin disc. Recon has a shaped soft mouth and I shouldn't have had to get more for many months, but Patton decided he actually loves frisbee and he has a much harder bite and tighter grip. So now mine are trashed too.

Are there no disc dog clubs anywhere near you? That's how I've gotten most of my discs (oh and some gently used ones that were donated by Katherine Ferger ). If you go to an event you can usually buy discs right there and then save the shipping, but I had some discs shipped to me for a lot more reasonable than $40!

I've never heard of one, no.

I don't have amazon prime, no. Should I look into it?

Onyx destroys discs pretty fast, we play a lot of tug with them and well, she's a Malinois, she likes to bite, hard. My wallet doesn't appreciate this!

Unfortunately no disc clubs anywhere even remotely near to me. I'm not even sure if there are ANY in BC! I haven't found any yet. I wish there were!

If you like to shop online, I'd check into it. It's something like $100 a year, but gives you free two day shipping for *most* items(now that I think of it, I'm not sure how it works in Canada), and you can get hero blems there too. BF does a lot of amazon prime shopping and I've come to love it.

Tips on training a reverse chest vault?

Circus will do the rebound off my chest but I'm not sure what's the next step and how to teach her to catch a disc while rebounding (and I'm not even sure what angle to throw the disc).

I've tried to watch videos on YouTube (including Pvybe) but it's all happening so fast I can't really tell what's going on.
