Dog Frisbee league got its start in Ohio

What began in Silver Lake has now grown to more than 130 clubs around the world.

SILVER LAKE, Ohio – Each summer there is no shortage of competitive leagues – from golf, baseball, soccer and tennis to name a few.

But how about a friendly competition that you can join with your best friend? Look no further than the K9 Frisbee Toss and Fetch League.

We tried one a few weeks ago when the weather was more like March – but the dogs don’t mind.

We went straight to the man who knows the most about K9 Toss and Fetch leagues. That’s because he started it.

“Hi! My name is Mark Vitullo. I am the Founder and Administrator of the K9 Frisbee Toss and Fetch Worldwide League, which started right here in Silver Lake, Ohio.”

The competition is pretty straight forward. Make as many catches as possible in one minute. The farther the distance the Frisbee is caught, the more points.

We visited on the last day for the Spring League. The summer league has only just begun. The competition takes place all year round, whatever the weather.

“There are 130 clubs around the world that also play in this global league,” said Vitullo.

Silver Lake consistently ranks among the best in the world, but that shouldn’t intimidate newcomers.

“It’s just one big Frisbee family. We all have one thing in common: dogs. And we just love it. So it’s good exercise for the dogs and for us,” said Betty Zamoskar, one of the founding members of the club.

While sporting dogs may have a slight speed advantage, all breeds and mutts are welcome.

“We have miniature poodles, we have everything, all breeds are here, so they’re all represented here,” said Frank Bilby.

As long as your “frisbeast” is ready to catch and retrieve, you’re guaranteed a good time!

“The dogs love it. It creates a great way to bond better with your dog. It socializes them with this environment with high excitement. It’s just a good social activity for people too,” Vitullo said, before adding, “A good Frisbee dog is a tired Frisbee dog.”
