The seminars include teaching the skills needed for beginning disc dog and more advanced disc dog, various throwing techniques, disc tricks, toss and fetch, competition skills, freestyle and a question and answer session about the sport.

Cost is $40 per person which includes instruction, a disc and light refreshments.

A limited number of working spots are available so interested individuals are asked to send payment to hold your spot. Checks will not be cashed until after the seminar.
