Flying discs, flying dogs

Posted

Dozens of doggies from around the country converged on Clement Park over the Oct. 26-27 weekend for the Final UFO Major, hosted for the first time by Colorado Disc Dogs.

They competed in levels from simple toss and catch all the way up to freestyle, where the pooches and their people perform choreographed routines, showing off their signature moves.

In honor of Halloween, there was even a doggie costume contest and trick-or-treating among sponsoring vendors.

Colorado Disc Dogs was founded in 1994 and welcomes new members, even hosting a training event every spring.

“It is one of the biggest and most successful disc dog clubs in the world,” according to the UFO website. “Teams from the club are always in the top of the standings at every event they participate in, judges from the club are highly sought for their experience and skills, and club events are heavily attended all year long.”
