Melissa Heeter gave disc demonstrations and seminars at the 2008 Cynosport World Games. By Brenna Fender
In the demonstration ring at the Cynosport World Games this year, former Frisbee Dog World Champion Melissa Heeter showed off her outstanding disc skills and also taught beginners the basics of the sport. At one point, there were 10 people standing in the ring all learning the best way to throw a frisbee that their dogs could safely catch. Heeter stressed safety throughout her demonstrations and seminars. The people who attended her presentations certainly left with a better understanding of the disc dog sport.
