Are You Throwing Blind to Your Disc Dog?

A blind toss is a throw where either the dog cannot see the release or the handler cannot see the dog at the time of release. Blind tosses can be of benefit on the judges card or they can be looked at as handling or routine building mistakes, depending upon the judge and the performance of the skill. Regardless of the scoring implications understanding the nature of blind throws is important to all disc dog teams for both freestyle and games.
