Flyball Workshop

Saturday, June 15 FULL

Flyball is a relay race run at top speed with four dogs to a team. The first dog on the team runs down a line of four jumps, triggers a box to release a ball, the dog catches the ball and then runs back down the line of jumps to the start. The next dog on the team then runs the sequence until all four dogs have completed the race. The fastest team wins.

 

This workshop is for all levels. Dogs that have never played the sport before or those that have completed flyball classes can all attend. Dogs should have basic obedience skills and have no reactivity or aggression issues towards dogs or people to attend.
