Jumping dogs

From the archives of British Pathe, a video of what was claimed to be the "world's greatest jumping dog" in 1930.  Via Nothing To Do With Arbroath.

My initial thought (after cringing while watching him clear that spiky gate-thing) on viewing the video was that he would have been a fantastic Frisbee dog...

(Highlight reel from the 2010 NW Regional Disc Dog Championships).
