    So I've been feeling a little stuck lately with Codex and our freestyle routine in disc dog. I've got the world at my fingertips via youtube and somehow I just end up watching the same videos over and over!!

    This is where I need your help! Please post your favorite disc dog youtube video (or even your favorite moves from a video). I just want to spend some time watching videos I maybe haven't seen before (or tricks I overlooked!!). Codex and I might not be able to pull off the trick but it's ALL great inspiration to use moving forward.

    Thanks guys!!

    PS - As a thank you for your help here is a video of our routine from a competition this summer. The dog before us peed right in the middle of the field and Codex was reeeeaaaalllly into those smells, but we recovered eventually.

    I don't watch many freestyle disc routines, but I love this move if you can pull it off. I adapted it into my musical freestyle routine.

    This is pretty much the one other disc video I've watched lately. This lady is an athlete as well as her dog. :p

    Thanks!! That first move... one day.. one day... we are working on it but we just can't manage when there are discs involved (yet!) :(

    That second video is crazy amazing, makes me want to go do some dance classes so I can learn how to move a little better!

    Thanks for sharing some videos!

    I'm not a TON of help... my freestyle routine is almost non-existent, still. :rolleyes:

    That said, I really like watching Andrew Han's routines. The fact that he stays upright and uses a lot of different throws just makes me feel like there is more effort put into it, honestly. I think it's neat. I love the air bounce especially :)50) and how he never stops and the flow is real.

    He also adds in some discrete flatwork that I really like in routines. It's flashy.

    Not a particularly special video, one of the first I found on a youtube search. I'm sure you've met him/competed with him.
