Dog Frisbee

 

HELPFUL INFORMATION:

If this is your first Dog Frisbee event, Appalachian Air Canines recommends that you sign up for 'Timed Retrieve', 'Toss-Fetch' and 'Bullseye', at the beginner level.  The entry fee is $10 for non-club members, and includes all games, and a frisbee, plus an event patch with your entry.

Appalachian Air Canines requests that registrants complete a non-member form with rabies certificate information for your dog.

 

The first game during the Festival of Spring is 'Timed Retrieve' and will begin at approximately 11:30 am.  This is a great game for beginners! You are invited to use any dog-safe object to get your dog to run out 15 yards and then back to you, 2 times. Scores are based on how fast your dog can complete the task.  In this game, dogs need not catch any object.

 

The next game is 'Toss-Fetch'.  In this game, you have 1 minute to throw a frisbee to your dog and get as many catches as you can.  You only get points for catches, and the farther the throw, the more points.  There is also a bonus point if all of the dog's paws are in the air at the time of the catch.  Toss-Fetch Rules.

 

'Bullseye' is the final game.  For this game, the handler stands in the center of concentric circles and can have 2 discs.  Here, you'll also have 60 seconds to get as many catches as possible, with higher points awards for further throws. Bullseye Rules.

 

Participants are also encouraged to sign up for 'Freestyle',  a 90 second routine to music and usually includes various tricks and throws.  This may not be suitable for all beginners.
