Where & When
Instruction in this exciting sport is held at the Club. Please discuss with either the Chief Instructor or your Class Instructor for further details.
Flyball is a relay race between two teams of dogs (four dogs in each team). The dogs go through start gates - which are usually drag racing lights - and jump over four hurdles to a spring loaded box hold a tennis ball, grab the tennis ball and return over the four hurdles and through the finish line. If a team is really good the two dogs will meet nose-to-nose at the startline to minimise the time taken to complete the course and come out with a really fast time. Flyball is trained Australia-wide and many competitions are held during the year.
