Canine Disc or Disc Dog is the sport that got me started in dog sports. It is my specialty.
My first dog Shasta was a disc whiz so I set out to bring the organized sport to my province. I organized the first canine disc workshop here, was a founding member of Manitoba’s first canine disc club, Westman Disc Dogs, and taught the first disc group classes in the province.
Canine Disc is now played in both Winnipeg and Brandon, MB out of different clubs.
The Canadian Disc Dogs Association (CDDA) is an official titling body in Canada.
Many different dog breeds can participate, not just herding breeds or extremely agile and fast breeds. Any dog that like to chase things can be trained can do so. It is simply a matter of the handler learning how to train her/his dog properly.
This is something that we know how to do well. I have trained a Kuvasz and many Australian Shepherds to play disc and have coached dozens of clients to do the same.
