From Ultimate to Disc Dog

Meet Andrea Rigler, the 2012 UFO Freestyle World Champion and a former ultimate player turned disc dogger.

Andrea used to throw to her dog during halftimes and after games and the more she did, the more she liked it. After watching some videos online, she started doing frisbee tricks with her dogs.

Although Andrea doesn’t play ultimate anymore, she’s also gotten into disc golf. To become a better thrower, it’s really important to throw different types of discs. Always throwing the same type of disc will limit your throwing potential.
