To watch a dog fly through the air in pursuit of his Frisbee— and catch it in mid-air—is to watch one of the most impressive, defying-gravity stunts around. This incredibly popular sport, called Disc Dog, requires only a Frisbee, a four-legged buddy and a level play area.
Dogs of all kinds love to perform in this competition and some of the world champions have been mixed breeds and shelter rescues. This is also a great sport because it gives the dog a job to do, keep him entertained and is a terrific way to bond and work as a team with your dog. This summer, buy a Frisbee so you and your dog can have a blast and get a great workout chasing after the flying disc. There are hundreds of Disc Dog Clubs nationwide and you can join one to meet other athletic dogs and owners—and if you think your dog has what it takes to be a champ then enter some of the tournaments organized in most every state.
