This was so much fun!
Leilei doesn’t play that much Frisbee anymore. It’s not that I don’t want to or that she physically can’t play, it’s just that she’s still so nuts for the disc and still so not interested in self preservation. Add to that the fact that her flips and leaps are about half the scale they used to be, and it’s a bit nerve wracking to play with her. Did I mention that Leilani is going to be 12 this year?
But she’s such a gamer! She LOVES to play. I had the GoPro all charged up and wanted to do some filming of flatwork, and Rokalele was there, giving me the eye,”Let’s play!” When I asked her if she wanted to play Frisbee, she just about came unglued. So here we go, a little disc dog [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... More with Rokalele…
Not bad for an old lady, eh?
