The 2013 Canine Frisbee event was a success, even though only 15 dogs were registered to compete. Considering the event had to be cancelled the previous two years because of rain, this year far exceeded our expectations weatherwise. Despite a few hiccups we encountered, all had a good time. We want to thank Alaska Dogs Gone Wild (flyball) and Hundesport Alaska (dog obedience) for coming out and giving demonstrations, Anchorage Animal Control - rabies and dog license checker/license seller, Eddie P for his fabulous announcing and the lady across the street who allowed us to hook up the water hose to her house so that we could provide drinking water and fill up the doggie pools for the dogs. See who the top dogs were (see Frisbee results at bottom of page) and we hope to see them, and some new faces, back in 2014.
“Disc”overing New Heights at the Canine Frisbee Championships 2014
Exciting Paw to Paw Competition will be held Sunday, TBD, 2014 so mark your calendar!
Awesome Aussies, leaping Labs, bounding Border Collies and magnificent mixed breeds will take to the skies over Anchorage when the Municipality of Anchorage, Parks & Recreation Department hosts the Canine Frisbee Championships Sunday, TBD, 2014. Families and sports enthusiasts are invited to come out and enjoy an exciting afternoon on the Parkstrip and cheer on the most entertaining four-legged athletes in the area. Competition will be ruff and there will be a lot of fur flying. Unlike professional athletes, many of the four-legged competitors will be eager to provide pawdagraphs and kisses to their fans. The event takes place at 1pm at the Delaney Parkstrip Soccer Field (10th & L Street) east of the Rose Garden. On-site registration begans at 11 am and continues until the start of the event (or until registration forms are gone), and competition begins at 1pm. Previous experience is not required and is limited to the first 50 registrants with a limit of 2 dogs per household. If there are less then 50 entrants, then additional dogs from the same household may compete. Canine Frisbee is a boneafied sports event which welcomes novice and veteran competitors alike. Cost to enter your frisbee loving dog is $5, and as usual, is free to spectators. “Disc”over your dog’s talent and see what your canine companion is capable of in the 2014 competition.
Competition consists of two 60-second mini-distance rounds and the dogs with the highest scores advance to the second round. Owners supply their own frisbees for the championships Points are awarded on the number of catches each dog does in 60-seconds. Higher points are scored for distance and mid-air catches.
