This page will help you out with your selection of the right disc for your athlete and yourself. Obviously we are always prepared to give you some personal advise as well, feel free to contact us with your questions!!!
The most important part obviously is that any disc you buy should be a safe disc. Unlike most retail shops, all our discs are safe for dogs and will not scatter when caught. (hard plastic discs you find in pet stores or other large chains are not safe for playing with your dog, the only thing they are is cheap...)
For more information on disc selection, please scroll down...
What you see here is an overview of all 48 types of discs we have available for dogs. So, if your dog already decided on the brand and type, this will lead you to your goal in the fastest way. If you're not sure, ask for our expert advice, we're known for that...
Pups and small size dogs
Medium and large size dogs
If you are less experienced, advanced in throwing or an expert handler, there are some important things to consider. These questions will make you think about your options or raise more questions to call or write us for some words of advice...
What is my goal with discdog, do I want to have a good time in the garden or am I the next World Champion in the making, and is my dog up for that challenge? If yes, do I have a running dog, a jumping dog or a mixed dog and will I focus more on distance (short, medium, long), or is my future in freestyle?
The size of the disc is determined by the size of the dog. When the size of the disc is smaller than the distance between the floor and the mouth of you pooch, you are OK!
The next parmeter is the age of the dog, different discs go for different ages. You can imagine pup, teething, adult and senior dogs require different discs.
Another aspect is the bite force of your dog. Food and toys are a key indicator in this. Does your dog eat cooked food or raw bones, does he mangle every toy after a split second or is he gentle and not destructive towards toys. If your Labrador chews away a black Kong (TM) toy in 5 minutes, go bite-resistant.
When you get to a more advanced level, you will notice the start speed of the dog more than when you are still focussing on your throwing technique, fast starting dogs require other discs than slow starting dogs.
And last but not least, for the expert handlers out there... you know that different wind directions and wind speed do affect the flight pattern of your disc and you have solutions to correct that. Don't forget to count in the correction ability and tracking ability of your dogs as well...
