Flyball is often described as Drag Racing for Dogs – it’s fast, noisy and loads of fun.
Flyball is a canine team sport which is founded on the activities dogs love to do – run, jump, retrieve, compete and most of all their desired to please their owners.\u00a0 The\u00a0sport is a relay race between two teams of four dogs. Each dog must jump over four hurdles, retrieve a ball by triggering a flyball box pedal and then return with the ball over the hurdles to the start and finish line.
Flyball is an all inclusive sport – any dog, regardless of breed, size, shape or formal training, can participate and join in the fun.
Flyball does not interfere with obedience training. In fact, the sport reinforces the disciplines taught in obedience training.
Race meets are run in performance-based divisions. The fastest teams are placed in Division 1 and slower divisions follow sequentially. This enables every team to have a fair go and to be competitive in their division.
Training is held every Wednesday evening from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm.
