HOW TO TRAIN


Freestyle Flying Disc is one of the incredible Dog Challenge events you can try for yourself. Many dogs are already active in catching flying discs, and if your dog is interested, your dog may have the potential to become a disc dog.


First, make sure you have a large fenced area to work in so that you and your dog can practice with enough room.

Start by introducing your dog to the flying disc, and engaging it with fun, praise and behavior. You can start by using the disk as a cup. Then treat the disc like a toy, get your dog excited to play. Finally, do what is called a "roll and retro" - just roll the disc on the ground and ask your dog to bring it back. When he does, give him an invitation and a compliment.



Once your dog is familiar with the disc, the next step is asking your dog to retrieve the disc from your hand. Sit 5-10 feet away from you with your dog, hold the disc at arm's length, as if it were in the air, and call your dog and call to retrieve the disc with your hand. Once he has done this several times, start throwing the disc a few seconds before he reaches you. Using this technique, you can practice long and long throws with your dog.
