Our free but mandatory “Introduction/Test into Flyball” sessions is offered Monday’s at 7pm at The Meadows Bed & Biscuit 15020 Brown Mill Road in Huntersville, NC.
During this introductory session, we will teach you a little about the sport, introduce one or two basic skills, and get a feel for whether flyball is likely to be a good fit for you and your dog.
We’ll be looking for dogs:
• with the ability to be handled by others
• an interest in playing the sport
• no apparent dog/dog or dog/people aggression
• a degree of self-confidence
• a rudimentary recall
If you like the introductory class and decide to try your hand at flyball, sign up for a beginners flyball class! The classes are seven weeks long and the cost is $90.
What you will need to bring for class:
• Yummy treats and or toys
• Cash or check ($90 dog) There is a 50% discount for team members bringing a second dog to class for flyball training.
Flyball is a team sport designed for high energy dogs and their owners. Your dog will learn the basic pattern of jumping four jumps, executing a “Swimmers Turn,” retrieving a ball and returning over the jumps. Check out the sport at http://www.flyball.org. Ball drive is helpful but not essential. You’ll be strengthening your dog’s recall (having them return to you) as she/he learns the game!
If you catch the “Flyball Bug,” we are always looking for enthusiastic new members.
