What is Flyball?
Flyball is relay drag racing for dogs! with teams consisting of 4 dogs racing against another team. It is a fun, fast-paced relay race with your very excited dog. Dogs run and jump over low jumps to trigger a ball being released from a box and then return at top speed over the jumps with the ball. Dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes can compete in Flyball.
Dogs do need to be over 12 months of age to begin training and must be able to work off lead.
Why do Flyball?
The main reason is that the dogs absolutely love it! Flyball includes all things that dogs love to do – jumping, catching, retrieving, competing and most of all, spending time with their owners!
It's fantastic stimulation, especially for active dog breeds. It also provides a great way to build your dog’s socialisation skills.
Flyball is a great team sport thats a lot of fun for people too and It's a great way to meet other people & their dogs. Flyball can be as competitive as you want to make it. The best part of all is just having fun with your dog.
