Disc Dog

Presented by The Martial Arfs

The Martial Arfs

Disc Dog (Canine Frisbee) is an exciting aerial dog sport where dogs and their owners compete in events such as distance catching and partially choreographed freestyle catching. The sport takes skill in throwing the Frisbee as well as canine athletic ability for jumping, twisting, turning & catching the disc.

About The Martial Arfs:

The Martial Arfs works by channeling your dog’s innate drives and desires. For example, getting a child with AD(H)D to stand still is extremely difficult. However, getting a child with AD(H)D to stand still while on one leg learning to do a karate kick is easier because the challenge of standing on one leg forces them to engage both mentally and physically so they don’t fall over.

Similarly, by channeling your dog’s desire for a treat, they can incorporate lure reward training to motivate your dog to do the exercises of The Martial ARFS. For example, once they lure your dog onto an unstable surface, their innate desire to maintain their balance will take over and they will struggle to maintain their balance for as long as they can. Your job as their trainer, is to help them struggle to maintain their balance for longer and longer periods of time.

As they get better, they make it more and more challenging by changing the surface and/or incorporating movements and behavioral commands. At that point, it is possible to incorporate behavior modification techniques and obedience commands with specific activities and exercises in order to improve or create the behaviors they want, all as a part of the exercises you are performing with your dog.
