So I didn't know, but when I went into the school's bookstore today they sold discs for dogs! So I bought one spur of the moment. What exactly consitutes a good disc for disc dog?
We have two at home, a small gel/flexible one and one you get at petsmart that's hard plastic, ick. We use the gel/flexible one the most. The one I just bought is rubber and flexible and normal size yay. The brand is Dogobie and it was on sale for $3.50 seemed like a good deal.

Good luck, disc is super fun!!
Is that so they learn to track the frisbee or just so you don't injure them? lol

I think I may be in the same boat. I tried it a couple times last night in the house and it was ok, but not all that great. My poor dogs don't know what they are in for haha

I also am going to echo finding a club. I looove my club so much and even though I haven't been able to go a ton the times I can I get so much out of it. And I adore the people there too, so much fun to geek out with dog people who love training, sports and dogs.
I wish other people here felt the same about dogs as I do, but most of the dog crazy people are very traditional so we butt head. >_<
This makes me miss Tacoma.....my training facility was sooo awesome there.
