Oh My Discdog - Take 2

At which age do I start playing disc dog with my puppy? What to expect this time around?

Expert Interview with Evanghelos Christofellis

Who is Evanghelos? For our first expert interview, we wanted to start with a BIG BANG! Evanghelos Christofellis is the 2018 World Champion in the art of Distance throwing and holds the most points ever obtained at a UFO (American organization) World Championship.

Oh My Discdog - Take 1

High focus, correct disc placement, low body posture equals safety of your dog. Higher, higher, more, more!!!

In those days, the sport was still at a very early stage, and we took every option to acquire new insights from the best in the business at that time. We had the opportunity to learn from the sport's founding fathers in different continents, and already back then, some resolute contradictions in mentality were showing. It was on one of those workshops that I had my first shock. One of the...
