Pawsitive Vybe Disc Dog Foundation class is six weeks long and is for all skill levels
For the Pro
Before you write this class off as ‘too basic’ ask yourself these questions?
Can my dog go around both ways? Can we scoot from front, heel and side positions? Do we have good team movement when a disc is not in the air? Do I throw discs that make my dog look good? Do we have good clean vaults and how easy is it to create new vaults? Can we create and perform new sequences in just a few minutes?
If your answers to these questions are not all a simple, “Yes,” then this class will benefit you and your dog.
For the Noob
A strong foundation allows you to execute just about any jam you envision in your head. Mastery of position, team movement, and throwing are critical for epic disc dog freestyle performance.
Here’s a quick rundown of what’s on the agenda:
Weeks 1 & 2: Set Up and Position
No Disc Dog Foundation is complete without having a good understanding of position and the capability to set your dog up quickly and efficiently.
Weeks 3 & 4: Flatwork
Our [caption id="attachment_27605" align="alignleft" width="300"] Counter Clockwise Working Flank[/caption] Flatwork is the stuff that happens between the catches. How the team moves and transitions, often without the disc, is flatwork. Flatwork concepts in disc dog are taken from the agility and herding world and purposed towards chasing plastic. For the agility minded: The cued Drop is the previous obstacle, the catch... instruction adds a new wrinkle to the game of disc. Learn to create patterns and move your dog around the field effortlessly and deliver discs to them wherever you want.
Week 5 & 6: Throwing
Pawsitive Vybe throwing instruction is known worldwide for excellence and simplicity. We’ve helped hundreds of discdoggers with their throwing. Our technique is elegant and simple. We make throwing easy.
Throwing in the Disc Dog foundation class is not about a bunch of funky releases, it’s a good solid technical foundation combined designed to help you deliver discs that make your dog look really good.
