A New Athletic Dog Sport?


Recommended Posts

So I am fairly sure most of you know, or have heard of, Freestyle Frisbee (Disc) with dogs...

 

Well, Jasper and I are inventing a NEW sport based off that.

 

Freestyle Tennisball!

 

He LOVES it. He is having a blast learning new maneuvers and tricks. We just spontaneously started playing around the other day at the dog park. There weren't enough rolicking dogs for him to romp with, so I pulled the ratty old TBall out of my pocket and started improvising. His eyes lit up and he went *Sproing!* and Lost His Mind. I think it should be a sub/sport to Disc, or possibly it's own category. LOL

 

Just having a hard time trying to come up with a name for this newfound Joy/Sport.

 

Flyball is already taken, and JumpBall and FreeBall just sound "inappropriate."

And it has to be something catchy and fun sounding that abbreviates well. Hmmm

 

Any ideas anyone?

 

Oh- and I will try to get some video this coming week and post it so you can see what I am talking about. :D

Perfect....a video..... when we see exactly what it is that you are doing, it will be easier to figure out a name. However you are sooooooo good at making up new words, :lol: I am confident that you will think of something. Can't wait to see what this is all about. I love it when our pups develop a new game.

We are actually leaning towards

FreeBall

 

Simple and easy and not too "inappropriate" sounding... lol

 

Going to enlist the aid of a friend (npi B)) to capture some video at the park today- yay

Yeah- problem is, she HATES balls. Refuses to play with them. We do play with rope toys and such, and she gets to participate when we are doing obedience and tricks.

 

And ya gotta admit- Jasper has Great Focus! :D
