Disc Classes

                             Get ready to party with your dog!

So What is Disc?

Long distance throws?  Fancy vaults and tricks?

There is a lot more to the game than these things!  You do not have to have a power throw or flashy moves to do well in the sport.  Many of the games involve strategy and effective team movement.  There are even disc games that incorporate agility obstacles into the mix!

I am the founder of the Victoria Disc Dog Club and am also a certified UpDog judge and host.  There will be many fun events coming to the Victoria area as it is my goal to grow the sport of disc here.  I invite you and your dog to be a part of the fun!

Toss & Fetch

The bread and butter of disc.  Gain points for straight throws down the field.  The further you throw, the more points you get!

Clubs play together and collect points as a team to compete against other clubs world wide.  Don’t let this scare you, as a team you can only add to our score, not subtract.  And it is all about fun anyway!

Updog

An individual sport with a ton of variety!  There are 10 different games to play, some with only discs and some with agility equipment mixed in!

All the updog games were developed with the intent to build skills in your dog required for Freestyle.  These days it is just a whole lot of fun!

Freestyle

Like tricks?  Like disc?  This puts them both together, with music too!  Get creative and show off your dogs strengths.

There are a number of organizations that offer Freestyle.  In Canada, UpDog is it!  Most UpDog competitions will offer this fun game, even if you don’t feel ready to play it – it is a fun one to watch.
