Flyball is suitable for most breeds of dog, as long as they are fit and healthy, however each dog is assessed on an individual basis. The competition event is a relay and sees 2 teams of 4 dogs, racing side by side over a 51 foot long course. Each dog must run in turn over the 4 jumps, trigger a flyball box releasing a ball, catch the ball and return over the jumps. The next dog is released, in relay fashion, to run over the course but can’t cross the start/finish line until the previous dog has returned passed through. The first team to have all 4 dogs finish the course without an error wins. Each team consists of a maximum of 6 dogs with handlers and a box loader. Training at NDTCFlyball training is at NDTC and takes place on Monday evenings at 19:00 til 20:00 (excluding bank holidays).However, in poor weather conditions (wet or slippery ground) it is extremely likely that the training will be cancelled as this can be dangerous for both dog and handler.
