Hey People, Dogs Like Playing With Frisbees Too!


The Frisbee is a thin, round disc that utilizes lift to maintain a smooth flight through the air. Throwing the Frisbee is a fun pastime that has grown into more of a competitive activity with disc golf courses springing up around the country and ultimate Frisbee games resembling contact football. The popularity of the Frisbee is not limited to two-legged beings and has transferred to our canine friends who enjoy chasing the hovering disc and attempting airborne catches. Although the Frisbee is a simple disc, the flying object allows people and dogs to demonstrate athletic ability. Frisbee competitions and training build strong owner-dog relationships and create a fun atmosphere for interaction with other dogs and dog owners.
