Granite State Disc Dogs was founded by a group of like-minded individuals who started gathering for practices in January of 2011 and quickly realized that working as a group was very rewarding and inspiring. As a club we put on and attend competitions. We host seminars and clinics to help improve disc skills for both dog and person and have done demos to promote the sport and all it has to offer and support causes like Rescue and Research. We welcome anyone to join us at practices or events to see what this sport has to offer you and your dog and always welcome new members to join. Disc Dog is a great outlet for exercise and training with the added benefit of strengthening the relationship between you and your canine partner!

Kim resides in Deerfield, NH with her menagerie of farm animals to include horses, chickens, ducks and turtles. Growing up, her family always had a dog and she was the one signing out the same animal books at the school library over, and over researching and studying about all the characteristics and traits of all the different breeds. She found something exceptionally intriguing about the ability, drive and focus of the herding dogs and years later she’d get the opportunity to be owned by an Australian Cattle Dog.
