Disc Dog


2018 DiscDogathon

Skyhoundz World Qualifying DiscDogathon (Local "Catch and Throw" if time)

We are proud to have Southeast Disc Dogs (SEDD) running our Skyhoundz disc events again for 2018.  Saturday will feature the World-Qualifying DiscDogathon. A must see! Watch dogs at their athletic best, especially in the free-style competition where they do a choreographed routine to music.  

If there is time after that competition, they will host a small local competition for beginners on up! Does your dog like to catch a frisbee? You qualify! Also, watch some demos and benefit from some overall group training tips from the judges.
