Team Relay Race
In the sport of Flyball
Flyball is a high-speed relay sport dogs can play with a group of four dogs and their owners. A team competes against other teams to jump four hurdles, catch a ball and run back in succession until all four dogs have had their turn. The first team to run the race without making a mistake and in the fastest time WINS! Small, large, fast, slow, pure-breed or mixed breed, this is a sport for all dogs!
Flyball is a fast pace and high energy sport, though any dog can play at their own speed and capability. Because the nature of the sport we need strong foundations for each dog on the team to effectively perform their part in the race. Safety is also a top priority, so no cutting corners in our flyball classes.
The program is made up of two different classes, which cover everything you’ll need to get started in this sport. You’ll be able to retake any classes you need extra time with. Once you and your dog are proficient on the skills trained in these classes, you’ll be ready to join one of our ongoing drop-in Flyball Skills classes. We’d love to have you and your dog join us for some flyball fun!
