DiscDogger Weekly #28 | The Sound of DiscDog

Episode #28 takes a bit of a detour… We’ve fallen into the Clubhouse rabbit hole. If you’re not on Clubhouse or are not aware of it, just sit tight, you’ll be familiar in no time. Clubhouse is an audio only social network – no text, no images – just voices. I started a series called “the Sound of DiscDog” and it’s only audio. This week’s episode features some video from those audio sessions. Hope you dig it… Check out this piece for the full story…

The Sound of DiscDog | Halting the Chewing and Mauling of Discs with King

Another installment of the Sound of DiscDog with King. This session was amazing for King and I. This mauling/chewing behavior has been a real nag. It’s quite oppressive in normal working environments, but it wound up being an easy job in this Sound of DiscDog session. It’s very illustrative and easy to hear some of the timing stuff, especially if you heard the first session last week. Check out the audio below before watching the vid if you want the full effect…

Handler Movement | Exploring the Holger

We’ve got to handle the dog, wrangle discs and get into position. It’s not simple and not easy, but there are things we can do. It might be as simple as spinning in the “wrong” direction, like the Holger.
