where did it all start

Dogfrisbee is still a young dog sport in the Netherlands. For over ten years now, this fantastic sport has been practiced by dogs and owners. The roots of dogfrisbe sport lie, of course, you would almost say, in the United States. A man with a Whippet, who smuggled his dog into the stadium at a nationally televised baseball game in 1974, has laid the groundwork for the dogfrisbee's enormous popularity.

The man was called Alex Stein and the dog was named Ashley and was a Whippet. He had discovered that his dog wanted to do everything to catch a Frisbee. Running, jumping, turning, Ashley was not too crazy. During the break of the game, Alec ran onto the field with Ashley and gave a fabulous dog frize show until he was arrested! The president of the international frisbee association, Irv Lander, who also happens to be present at the same baseball game, was very enthusiastic. He paid bail for Alex Stein.

The audience at the competition greatly appreciated the performance and this started a real triumph for Alex and Ashley. In sports crazy America, the sport quickly became known and one thing led to another. Now this sport is spreading rapidly across Europe and is popular from the United States to Japan. Most dogs love chasing something, so catching the disc is quickly learned by most. If the dog also wants to retrieve it is quickly viewed ... .. the dog just chooses this sport! Almost all breeds and crosses can play dogfrisbee.

Frisbeeing with your dog is never the same, which makes it fascinating for both dog and handler. The variety of throws is enormous, the dog and possibly the handler can show all kinds of arts, while catching the disc is the reward. Most dogs and handlers, who have started with it, get hooked on this sport.
