Directional Feeding is the underlying essence of disc dog freestyle. As a concept, it consists of reading the dog’s line and delivering a well placed disc that elicits a leap where she is going to be.
Directional Feeding is an important drill and skill for all disc dogs and handlers. It teaches the handler how to read a dog and deliver well placed discs. It also allows teaches you how a dog moves on the field, which is important as well.
Directional Feeding is most often started after a catch. Just give the Drop cue, mark the teeth off, read the dog’s line, then deliver the disc where she is going to be.
