Backhand Grip with Matt Bilderback

Today we have a guest speaker on the blog, Southern Ohio Flying K9s President, Matt Bilderback. Matt is a very experienced disc dogger, and competes at the highest levels of the sport. You can expect to see a lot of content provided by Matt!

Today’s video is a tutorial of the backhand throw. The backhand is usually the first throw a novice will learn. It’s the backbone of the sport, and the throw most commonly used for Toss & Fetch competitions. It’s also the basis of a number of variations and trick throws.
