Flyball Faq’s

What is Flyball?
Flyball is a team relay race. There are four dogs on a team, and two teams go head-to-head. Each dog must retrieve a tennis ball from the spring loaded box at the end of the racing lane, completing four narrow jumps both down and back. It is fast, loud, and fun. DTCCC offers three levels of flyball classes. Our flyball team is Chaos Unleashed!

Do I need to have done obedience classes before doing Flyball?
Yes. Your dog should have basic skills such as attention, sit, down, stay, walking on leash, a release cue, a speedy recall, and be able to work off leash around other dogs in a class environment.

How old does my dog need to be to start flyball?
Your dog needs to be in good physical condition to jump and race, and mentally developed to understand the obedience skills already discussed – this age will be different for every dog.  Older dogs need to be physically healthy.

Due to the need for dogs to interact with each other in closer areas for some of these exercises, only dog friendly dogs should enroll.
