Dogs love to fetch and an athletic dog leaping into the air to catch a flying disc is not an uncommon sight on a summer day in the park. Hyperflite sponsors the Skyhoundz World Canine Disc Championship competition each year and it is returning to AT&T field next month to determine the 2010 champions. With the competition just a little over a month away, it is not too late to train your own dog to compete. Hyperflite offers a free training manual to help you get started.
For the most part, dogs love to play with their favorite humans anyway so preparing them for disc competition is as simple as playing with your dog. Skyhoundz disc dogs often leap into the air to catch the disc and the competition offers a variety of divisions to demonstrate your dog’s athletic ability.
The world championships invite winning teams that have qualified through local and regional competitions. On Friday, September 24th there will be a qualifying round held in Chattanooga to fill the few remaining positions in the competition. You must register to compete in the final open qualifier.
