Chapter 1 Section 3 Intro:

Tao of K9Disc

The Tao of K9Disc is not a Style, it is a philosophy of sorts. It seeks to openly explore and personalize any and all styles to the dog, handler, and team to help them express themselves honestly, look amazing, and feel good about their play. Tao means the Way. It’s like Buddhism without the Buddha.

At Pawsitive Vybe we eagerly seize and absorb techniques and bits and pieces of training styles, handling styles, other dog sports, human sports – if it’s good and applicable to disc dog freestyle we will grab it and start using it. That is our way.

Other Styles of training and play should be accepted and aspects of them uncovered and appreciated. Understand that there is balance in the world and nobody sees your particular shades of grey in the yin and yang of things.

Pawsitive Vybe adheres to key principles from a philosophical, training, and performance aspect that we shockingly tend to adhere to. Your important principles might be different than ours, and that’s OK. It is not your job nor our job to change that.

Give different Styles and ideas a look, see how they fit within who you are as a player, dog, and team. If they fit. Grab them and use them. They are of value.

Such is the Tao of K9Disc.
