Dogs and their owners in the North Okanagan can soon take part in a fun game of competitive Frisbee.

The K9 Frisbee Worldwide League is putting on a clinic in Armstrong as part of a month-long road trip through the Northwest, led by league founder and administrator Mark Vitullo.

The event will take place at 1945 Otter Lake Cross Rd., in Armstrong Thursday, May 30, beginning at 6 p.m.

Local dog lovers are invited to join in the fun.

The K9 Frisbee Toss and Fetch League is ideal for dogs of all breeds and sizes and provides an opportunity for people and their four-legged companions to bond over a shared activity.

The league has grown to include more than 200 cities around the world, with more than 7,000 active members enjoying the sport.

During the clinic, participants will learn the basics of K9 Frisbee, including tips on how to get started, the rules of the game and proper throwing techniques. The clinic is open to all skill levels, from complete beginners to seasoned players.

“We are excited to bring the joy of K9 Frisbee to Armstrong,” said Vitullo. “Our goal is to introduce this wonderful sport to as many dog lovers as possible, and we encourage everyone to come out and see what it’s all about. It’s a fantastic way to spend time with your dog, get some exercise, and meet other dog enthusiasts in your community.”

The clinic will be hosted by local club captain Florence Jarrett, who will assist in teaching and demonstrating the sport.
