The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
We are adopting a Rat Terrier (much Cooler than the name implies) from a Rescue outfit on thursday. I want to give him sometime to acclimate to the new surroundings, but then I want to get him out on the course with me. They are an Active dog, so I know he won't have problems keeping up.
I was playing at a home course last week and a guy showed up with a Golden Retriever. It had saddlebags that the guy had made that was his disc bag. The dog was his caddie. THEN, when he ganked a shot into the woods, he sent the dog in after it. When the dog found the disc, it stayed put and barked till he got there. How freekin cool is that?
So mostly, wondering if anyone golfs with there dogs and what kind of experience it is? Do you recommend it?
They don't throw for crap either.
Yeah, we have some real dongs on our course!
The most annoying "trash" is dog sh.. not picked up by their irresponsible owners.Throw away trash from humans seem to be the norm everywhere,haul it in,haul it out.
Most public parks have a leash law for dogs,however there are those that seem the rule does not apply to them.Personally,I have no problem with dogs, but I'd rather play dg without them around.
Congratulations on your new friend.
We recently adopted a Golden/Husky mix. She goes with me to every course that will allow dogs. I leash her to my bag and she is a walking companion. She does not chase disks, nor retrieve them. She sits patiently while I throw and then we move on. It is relaxing and a good experience for both of us.
Best of luck!
