If disc dogging were a university course then “Disc Dogs!” would be the textbook. From initiation to graduation this book has something for everyone. Even advanced teams will find new tricks and useful tips to improve their throws and consistency. I had to run out and try a few! I particularly enjoyed the stories and photos of teams past and present. They helped to add insight into how the sport has evolved.

The first time the book touched my hands there was no reading involved, it was front-to-back just enjoying the images alone. High speed action photography is not a simple matter, yet this book is loaded with a very nice collection of images. Couple that with the authors’ talent for communicating their experience and knowledge and you end up with a disc dog book that is in a league all by itself. It’s another standing ovation for Peter Bloeme and Jeff Perry.

Whether you’re a seasoned competitor or just beginning your own fascinating journey in disc dog sports, you will enjoy and benefit from the information you find in these pages. If this book had been available when I started tossing plastic to my dogs, it would not have taken eight years to qualify for my first World Championship and it may not have taken another nine years after that to finally win a World Championship!

Bloeme and Perry bring an amazing amount of experience to this project. They’ve done it all, with a combined total of more than 50 years of experience including both human and canine disc sports. In that time, they have travelled throughout the world, competing, teaching, and promoting canine disc sports. “Disc Dogs! The Complete Guide” is a must for anyone interested in the sport, from those just starting out to those who are preparing for championship play.
