Flyball is a sport open to all dogs, of all sizes, including mixed breeds.  Athletic dogs, large and small, excel in the sport. 

To begin Flyball training, dogs must: 

  • Have a solid recall in an open field, even with distractions.
  • Be well socialized.
  • Be healthy, athletic and not overweight.
  • Enjoy retrieving a tennis ball. If your dog also enjoys a game of tug, that's a plus
What to bring to class:

- Lots of small, high value treats.  
- Clicker
- Flat collar and or body harness
- 6ft leash
- 20ft long-line if your dog is not 100% on his recall around distractions
- Tug toy that your dog *really loves*, 2-4ft long is the best length
- Crate (recommended but not required)
