Welcome to Episode 18 of DiscDogger Weekly, aka: Season 2 Episode 8. This week we’re focused on Shapes – how the dog, handler, disc, and team move and move together in space and time – and throwing.
Ron lays out some creative throwing and Team Movement is how dog and handler move, as a team, out there on the field. It is a judging category in some organizations and certainly is a focus of many judges, players, lessons and Jack Fahle joins us for some games to enhance your distance throwing and competence in Toss & Fetch. We’ve got a couple rounds of freestyle dressed up to illustrate the intricacies of Team Movement & Flatwork is the stuff that happens between the catches. How the team moves and transitions, often without the disc, is flatwork. Flatwork concepts in disc dog are taken from the agility and herding.
