Watch these high-flying disc dogs delight the crowd in New Suffolk

07/30/2015 11:30 AM |

Ed Jakubowski returned to New Suffolk Tuesday with a full crew of daring, acrobatic dogs who desperately wanted to catch their flying discs.

Five dogs performed disc-catching routines to tunes such as American Author’s “Best Day of My Life” — and, of course, the aptly chosen “Who Let the Dogs Out?” by Baha Men.

Mr. Jakubowski put on similar shows in 2011 and 2013. This time, he and the dogs endured 90-degree heat to entertain a crowd of more than 150 people, most of them children, at the New Suffolk school ballfield.

“The general consensus seemed to be that they all had a good time,” Mr. Jakubowski said.

Some dogs chased down throws of more than 30 yards to grab flying discs out of the air, and other leapt off Mr. Jakubowski’s back to make the catch.

Mr. Jakubowski has been training disc dogs for close to 40 years, and he has won several regional championships for his efforts.
