“This has been a dream of mine since I started competing with Davy just over a year ago,” saus McLeod. “For me to be able to say that Davy has caught further than any other dog means a lot.”

With this latest accomplishment, Davy Whippet becomes the first dog to officially catch a flying disc over 400 feet, which is impressive since Davy covered that distance in about 10 seconds before catching the disc. In the past 9 months, the Frisbee duo has set 4 World Records, won 2 World Championships and won the Quadruped National title.

In addition to competing in distance competitions, Davy and Rob have performed demos for the Edmonton Rush professional lacrosse team, in front of hundreds of fans at the Rainmaker Rodeo and for kids camps with the Calgary Humane Society.

McLeod also competes in ultimate frisbee, disc golf and overall disc sport competitions and teaches dog owners how to throw better for their dogs. To learn more, click here.
