Your dog can be a Disc Dog! What is “disc dog”? Disc dog (a.k.a. "Frisbee dog") is a dog sport. In disc dog competitions, dogs and their human flying-disc-throwers compete in different games. The sport celebrates the bond between humans and dogs, by allowing them to work together. Individuals and families and their dogs are welcome to join this workshop to learn about this sport. Participants will learn the following:

  • How to introduce the disc to your dog 
  • A variety of disc throws (humans)
  • How to build drive for the disc
  • Different formats of disc playing with your dog

Registration is required. Please register online. All participants should bring water for their dog and themselves, a 6-foot leash (no retractable leashes allowed), and have poop bags on hand (poop bags are available at the park). Please wear comfortable clothing. You also may want to bring a chair to sit in during parts of the workshop. We will meet at Vista Field, near the playground. Questions? Please contact Maura (mogara@thetrustees.org; 508-668-6136).
