UpDog is dedicated to expanding the awareness and participation of people and dogs in athletic endeavors. We want more people and more dogs having fun, playing together.
So we designed some fun games built around the opportunity for every dog and human to work towards their own personal bests. You will have fun (Play), you will earn achievements (Achieve), and you and your dog will learn and grow. (Expand)
Our core beliefs…
Play, Achieve, Expand
Our events are all about fun. Every team at every level can enjoy competing and earning achievements. Our games are designed to help develop foundational canine sport skills.
Every dog has its day.
No matter the breed, types, size or shape, any dog that competes has the opportunity to achieve every time they take the field.
Our human competitors are ambassadors to the world of what is possible with discs and dogs. All ages and skill levels are welcome!
Our games are designed for all experience levels. Some of our games are a hybrid of dog sports and others are traditional disc dog games like freestyle and throw and go.
These are digital badges or awards published on your profile that you can earn through participation in any UpDog game.
