Flyball

FLYBALL COMPETITION

We all know dogs love to run, so come and see them do what they do best in Flyball. Introduced in 2003, this fast-paced competition attracts teams from around the country and is a spectator’s delight! Flyball is a relay race between two teams of four dogs. Racing side by side, one dog from each team must go over four hurdles, trigger a flyball box pedal, catch (retrieve) a ball and then return over all four hurdles to the start/finish gate where the next dog eagerly awaits.

Each team consists of four dogs racing in each heat, plus up to two reserves. Reserves can be interchanged after each heat. There are between three and five heats to a race, and a team has to win a majority to win the race. Flyball encompasses all things that dogs love to do - jumping, catching, retrieving, competing and striving to please their owners. Flyball is a sport in which any dog can participate, regardless of breed, shape or size. A sport which is very popular in the eastern states is now becoming well supported and followed here in South Australia.
