Flyball

A completely pointless exercise but the dogs love it! Age restrictions do apply.

This is our version of American Flyball which involves the dog, at high speed, going over four individual jumps, making contact with the box then grabbing a tennis ball and racing back.

A completely pointless exercise but the dogs love it! Age restrictions do apply.

Flyball is a fun and energetic sport your dog will love. Two teams of four dogs compete at the same time, each using a parallel 'racing lane' down which each dog in turn runs, clearing four hurdles in succession before triggering a pedal on the Flyball box. A tennis ball is then released which the dog must hold before returning over the hurdles to the start line.

The first team to have its fourth dog across the finish line, with any part of the dogs body, wins the race. Each dog must cross the finish line before the next dog can start, and handlers aim to launch their dog so that it will cross with a returning dog just at the line.
