Flyball Training for Dogs
Flyball is best described as a relay race for dogs!
This is a team game which can be fast and furious, but ANY breed of dog, of any size, can do it. All they need is to be fit and interested in fetching a tennis ball. (It is also useful to be able to catch your dog afterwards!)
The game consists of four dogs and their handlers. Each dog in turn goes down a lane of four small hurdles and fetches a tennis ball from the flyball box and brings it back over the hurdles. The team races against another team in a second lane …. And the fun begins!
Flyball training takes place on Friday evenings at 6:00pm for beginners and 7:00pm for advanced dogs. Dogs must be over 12 months old to start training, and cannot compete until they are 18 months old.
