I have done one disc competition with my two girls. All my throws were a bit off(I had only started training it 2 weeks prior), so we did not get any points, but it was still a lot of fun. I was working on some freestyle stuff with one of my girls before winter set in. I use the blems from Hero disc.

Maddie has never been a ball dog But she does love frisbees. We even use throwing it as a reward for training. Works great.

I find T & C very relaxing, especially after a stressful 10 hour day at work.

Not always mind you, but they definitely have the right idea.

Just was curious if anyone else was into frisbee with their dogs? My kids are all too big for tricks, but I definitely can play it with them and we have a Frisbee Fest every year where people enter and just see how far out their dog can catch the frisbee at. It was the first time my golden ever showed interest in catching them lol. I like it since they have to think a little harder with angles, distance and height (which can vary).
Axl literally LIVES to catch discs. I discovered his natural talent for this when he was a little over 6 months old. Still going strong @ 8.5 years old. He can track, run down and make leaping catches of discs that travel 100 yards in the air - not an exaggeration. Aerobie rings he goes even longer distances.

RIP AWESOME Axl, you took part of me with you when you left. ALWAYS missed, NEVER forgotten. You were a ROCK STAR and the best friend I ever had.

My golden is 3 years old now, but anytime I've tossed a frisbee she never goes after it, she likes to jump and catch ball toys of all different kind.

It's too bad I bet she would really get into doing the frisbee, any suggestions? I could always just rub some peanut butter on the frisbee and chuck it (lol maybe not that could get messy)

my dog makes my day, every day

I use a cloth type frisbee, it's been around the house for years but no one really cared for it. Sipsy loves it but got concerned when she started leaping to catch it. She got pretty good actually but runs so fiercely after the thing that she did a flip trying to stop. She is just turning 9 months and concerned she might hurt something. So until she gets older we are just using it for training. I'll be sure and stock up when we can actually play Frisbee, she really loves it and can't wait to play. Has to be better for her teeth than the tennis ball.

You can always throw a "roller" with a flying disc as well. Your Golden will love to chase it and it is great for a puppy to teach them to track a moving object. And for your mature dog, well thrown roller can go 100 yrds in the hands of an expert. Just Youtube Disc Golf Roller for tips. There were few things that my Golden loved more than chasing a plastic flat ball around a field!
