Disc Dog Foundation Class

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 Flatwork 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

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.

Most players have a go-to Set Up Move, or 3, but it is important to have a variety of entries into the positions that start sequences to keep things interesting and to display and enhance flow.
In this epic video there are 13 different set up moves, some are fairly standard, and some are pretty clever. Below we’ll name and define them and talk about usage and pros and cons.

The Purpose and Value of Recognizing Shapes in Disc Dog Freestyle

Shapes are created by the position and movement of dog, handler, and disc. And shapes can be created by the dog, the handler, and the placement of the disc. Shapes are a fact of disc dog freestyle.

When the dog leaves the handler for a catch, that tends to create a line. When the dog is away from the handler and moves across the field to make a catch, as in a Zig Zag or Around the World, that tends to create a Shape.
