Hey UpDoggers! I'm going to be one of your dedicated Head Judges at UpDIF this year, instead of competing like usual. I'd like to gauge interest in how much all you competitors would like to embarrassing me this April 4-7... I'm considering running a raffle so the winner can tell me how to shave / wear my facial hair for the entire UpDIF weekend. I've got a lot of beard right now and whatever you say goes. Proceeds would go to an UpDog approved non-profit, like a local rescue or something. Original beard post for inspiration: https://www.facebook.com/chris.collier.526/posts/10216525030491573 I heard from a friend that this might generate some interest, and Kat sanctioned it, so if you guys are interested let me know here and I'll put something together. Picture of beard right now in the comments 👇
Love the Sweet Spot that Deb Norman painted for UpDog today 💕
Had a wonderful time at H2D2 Spring Fling UpDog Challenge in New York this weekend. My baby Boxer girl loved it and we got to meet many very talented Disc Dogs that really inspired us. Go Team Flying Unicorn! ˁ˚ᴥ˚ˀ 🦄

[03/18/20]   UPDIF 2020 status update - Operation "Hang Tight". Due to the latest changes surrounding the Corona virus, we will not be holding UPDIF 2020 during the originally scheduled dates of April 23rd-26th. We are however hoping to postpone to later in the year if at all possible. We do not know at this time when that would be as we have to work through logistics with Unicoi State Park. As such we are asking everyone to "hang tight" in regards to questions about refunds, cancellations, registration, etc. We will make every effort to do right by our competitors whether you can attend on the new date or not. We hope to have some firm answers for you within the next week or two but there are a lot of logistics to work through first. Those of you with cabin rentals, hotel reservations, etc. may want to wait to hear the new date as moving the reservation to another date may be easier than having to cancel, etc.

[03/13/20]   COVID-19 and UpDog events:
The safety of our competitors is very important to UpDog and as such we are recommending the following for UpDog events occurring in the next 8 weeks (note this timeline may be changed as information changes).

UpDog is leaving the decision regarding events scheduled in areas not yet affected by the outbreak to the host clubs, but we recommend you check with your state health department to help make the most informed decision based on up to date information.

If an event is occurring within 2-3 hours of an affected area the host club should consider whether the event needs to be postponed.

All local, state/province and federal guidelines for holding events in your area should be followed.

Please make UpDog aware of any cancellations or moved dates within 48 hours of the decision so that our events page can be updated accordingly (please do this for any UpDog event that is postponed or cancelled regardless of the reason).

Host clubs should publish refund policies for events coming up so that competitors know in advance of registering for an event what that policy is. We recommend working with competitors for a solution that works best for both parties.

UpDog requests that any competitors showing any symptoms or with close family/friends with whom they have been in contact showing symptoms should stay home and not participate in the UpDog event. Competitors who test positive or have close family/friends with whom they have been in contact who test positive for corona virus must follow state and local quarantine rules. Also please follow local, state/province and federal guidelines for self-isolation protocols based on travel and exposure.

Furthermore, though we are sure that you are well aware of the following hygiene and safety recommendations we would like to reiterate to do the following at all UpDog events:
- Wash your hands thoroughly and often
- Keep hands away from your face
- Avoid shaking hands, high fives or other similar contact
- Avoid sharing discs, equipment, etc. with others
- Avoid sharing food and drinks with others (this includes potlucks)
- Host clubs should make every effort to provide hand sanitizer and bleach wipes so that commonly used areas such as the sound table, registration table, etc. can be sanitized regularly throughout the day.

UpDog will continue to monitor the situation and alter any plans as things change.

As for UPDIF 2020, the event is 6 weeks away and as such it is too early to tell whether we will need to postpone it. The UpDog team meets weekly and the COVID-19 virus will be a topic each week. We will let you all know as soon as we have made a decision regarding UPDIF 2020.

UPDIF 2020 Wave 2

Wave 2 registration is up. I've created a brief video walking through it. Sorry in advance for having to listen to my dumb voice.

The pre-flight period will end on Saturday the 29th at 3PM EST. Then we will open up for "The Scramble" at 3PM EST on Sunday March 1st. The Scramble is the part that makes this all first-come first-served, and is meant to be dead simple. All the hard work can be done at your leisure during the pre-flight period.

Here is a direct link to the registration page:

[02/23/20]   UpDog International Finals is calling all vendors! Do you have products that appeal to the dog community? UpDog International Finals will be held in Helen, GA at Unicoi State Park April 23rd – 26th. There will be over 130 competitors from around the world attending this event representing multiple states and provinces. The vendor fee is only $25 plus a donation to be used in the raffle or as a game prize valued at $25 or more. If you would like to be a vendor at UPDIF 2020 please contact Barbara Reinhold at [email protected] to reserve your spot.

• Vendors must provide their own shade and electricity (generators are allowed so long as they do not burn the grass and are located away from competitors and the playing field due to sound and exhaust). Vendors will be able to leave their tents/items set up overnight however there is no security at the field overnight.

• Vendor tents will be near the playing fields and within easy sight of the competitors and the competition. Exact location will be provided on April 22nd once field set up is complete.

• Vendors can set up late Wednesday (4/22) afternoon once UPDIF field set up is complete (likely after 4pm) or Thursday (4/23) AM. Tear down can occur Sunday after the competition has completed or Monday morning.

[09/25/19]   Announcement!

Beginning October 1st, the American Kennel Club will begin recognizing the accomplishments of dogs competing in UpDog with AKC Disc Dog titles. Dogs that are AKC registered and earn medal UPs in at least 3 different Level 1 UpDog games are eligible for an AKC Disc Dog title. For example, if a dog earns a Bronze UP in 3 games, they will earn a DDB (Disc Dog Bronze). Dogs that earn 6 Bronze UPs will earn a DDBE (Disc Dog Bronze Elite). If your dog is not currently registered with the AKC and this is something that interests you there are a variety of ways to have your dog AKC registered.

Specifics about the UpDog/AKC titling program and the AKC title application form can be found in the AKC Title Recognition Program section of the AKC website by clicking on the link below. Title applications will be processed beginning October 1, 2019. A dog’s accomplishments (UPs earned) will be grandfathered back to the beginning of UpDog in 2014.

AKC Registration — the following are the types of AKC registration available:
-AKC Registration Number -This number is provided to a dog owner via a registration certificate received from the previous owner or via a puppy registration paper given to the new owner by the breeder.
-Purebred Alternative Listing Number (PAL) If a dog is purebred but an AKC Registration Number is not possible owners can apply for PAL number.
--Foundation Stock Service® (FSS) Number, this number is used for breeds whose status is currently in the foundational stage of being recorded into our registry and requires a copy of the dog’s pedigree.
AKC Canine Partners Number – This number is given to either mixed breed dogs or a non-AKC registerable purebred that has been altered.

For those not interested in this program, nothing about how UpDog currently works will change. You can keep enjoying UpDog as you do today! For those that are interested click the link below to find out more! Happy UpDogging!

Dog Sport Competition For Everyone | Everywhere! – Oct 13th – UpDog Triple Crown Worldwide Championship

Announcement! UpDog Worldwide Triple Crown Challenge registration is open!
