UpDogs in Tampa Florida...
Updated: Feb 14, 2019
The UpDog Challenge is in full swing throughout Florida...
The UpDog Challenge is a local, national and international k9 competition. This is "Frisbee" dog competition for both beginners and old pros alike. This locally based (Dade City, FL) organization has grown to become one of the worlds most popular event series for active owners.
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. - UpDog Challenge
Though well know amongst those already familiar with the sport, there literally thousands in Central Florida who have yet to hear about this great opportunity to become truly active with their own pups.
The mission of UpDog is to increase the number of dog owners participating in disc and dog sports
UpDog differs in many ways from "traditional" disc dog competitions. With fun and unique "Games" to a very inclusive reward system that both rewards all competitors, but provides great motivation to stay active and find yourself part of this great disc dog community.

Lutz Event at Courteous Canine 6 Oct 2018UpDog Challenge isn’t your usual competition
From “Frizgility” to being “Spaced Out” with the Disc Dogs This week the UpDog Challenge teamed up with NADD for a combined event at Courteous Canine in Lutz. We went specifically to see the Disc Dogs for a while on Saturday and saw first hand that the UpDog Challenge is not your parents Frisbee Dog competition series.
The alternative to the traditional Toss & Fetch or Freestyle (Dance Athletics) of the existing Disc Dog events, UpDog Challenge offers a wide variety of fun, imaginative and even whacky activities for your all Bad Azz Disc Dogz. It also provides a very encouraging achievement system from beginner to pro,. Which is extremely newcomer friendly.
