Flyball is often described as drag racing for dogs: fast, furious and full of excitement. It 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/finish line.
The Flyball community is passionate, encouraging and diverse. The enthusiasm and sheer exhilaration of the dogs’ faces (and some of the handlers faces too) creates a vibrant atmosphere.
