K9 Disc is a Super Fun Sport!

I offer group classes in foundations and freestyle. Private lessons and full or half day seminars are also available.

Disc is a fast paced sport that can involve aerial tricks and acrobatics, but can also be played low to the ground as a lower impact sport.

Puppies can play too! W focus on flatwork and bite/drop skills while they are still growing.

I am a certified games and freestyle UpDog Judge, and my goal is to promote more of this fun sport in our area.

Upcoming Nanaimo events and more info can be found on our Nanaimo Disc Dog Club website

 

Freestyle Disc

Freestyle is a choreographed sequence of disc moves and tricks set to music. You can be as creative as you like!  

 

UpDog Disc

In addition to Freestyle, UpDog offers many games on the  flat focusing on throwing and catching accuracy and speed. Several UpDog games include agility equipment, combining the best of both worlds.

 

Toss & Fetch! 

Toss and Fetch is a speed adn distance competition, but also a great and friendly way for new dogs or pups to get used to the competition environment.  Read all about it on the official Toss and Fetch website

Contact me to find out when next Toss and Fetch League starts! In this friendly game, teams accumulate points for catching discs in  various zones. Beginner Friendly!

What People Are Saying:

We have had an amazing training experience with four kids and pup is doing great! Trainer is thoughtful with incredibly useful tips. Definitely recommend this trainer
Christina is very knowledgeable about dog behaviour and is an excellent teacher. Her seminars and classes not only teach skills but also give insights into why your dog might be struggling. Every lesson, private, class or seminar, has been well prepared and I have come away with new ideas to work on with my dogs. I feel that Christina loves to help bring out the best possible relationship between dog and human that she can.
Excellent trainer …. very knowledgeable in dog behaviour and I love her approach to dealing with reactive dogs. Love  her easy relaxed style of teaching …. she makes it easy for even us beginners to ‘get it’. Highly recommended.
So thankful for the training help that Christina provided us for our reactive/fearful dog Phoebe. Christina’s passion, knowledge, skills and dedication to positive training methods shines through the changes we’ve seen in our Phoebe in just a few lessons! We continue to work on our goals and look forward to progressing through more training with Positive Dog!
Christina is an excellent dog trainer and teacher. If you want a knowledgeable trainer who has your dog’s best interests at heart and who uses science based training methods, look no further. I highly recommend her!
Christina helped me with a reactive foster and I was so grateful for the methods and education she provided. She gave me the tools to be able to help this dog learn how to appropriately greet new dogs, and she did it with positive training methods NOT harmful or painful methods. Thank you Christina!
