World Championship experience

The 2009 Skyhoundz Hyperflite World Canine Disc Championship was a great experience for our young disc dog and her future looks bright. Thelma competed at the Last Chance Qualifier on September 25 with 62 other teams from throughout the country. The other teams were much more experienced, Thelma has only been training for about 5 months. HOWEVER, her scores were remarkable and while she did not qualify, she finished among the top 16 teams in this very talented pool.
I was glowing with excitement after her round! Video and photos to follow shortly...

Wow I'm impressed with You and Thelma.
I have tried to teach my dog(adopted from shelter)to play disc too. He does a great job at catching it but so far he just does not enjoy playing he catches it for a food reward. Wont play unless there is food in it for em. He has his CGC and passed American temperament. Would like to do therapy soon. Also looking for info on fostering and volunteering at Animal farm foundation.
