CANIDAE would like to congratulate Matt D’Ano and his Border Collie Maggie on winning their 4th consecutive UFO Overall National Championship title at this year’s competition.
The UFO is dedicated to promoting the sport of canine disc dogs and is comprised of a group of people that work with the disc dog community to create a series of events that all mesh together into a globe-spanning series. The World Cup series is a points event, similar to World Cup Skiing or NASCAR. Disc dog teams compete at local contests, trying to earn World Cup points and qualify for the World Cup Final.
