Flyball!

This ongoing class teaches the owner/handler to work with their dog in a more instinctual way than most classes! The dog learns focus and attention and builds a repetoire of behaviors to perform when around other dogs. This class is fun, fun, fun!

There are two routes for flyball fun. One is a local Santa Fe recreational demo group and the other is competitive team sport.   Once a month or so, The Enchantmutts to come practice with us.   A tri-city club, the Enchantmutts actively practice in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Edgewood and while they compete in tourneys around the country, they are mostly about local fun. Check them out.

 A dog/handler team sport, flyball is a relay race of 4 dogs running a 65-foot course with 4 hurdles. A mechanical box tosses a tennis ball when triggered by the dogs feet! Dogs grab the ball in mid-air and return to handler over the hurdles. Fast-paced and fun, most dogs learn to enjoy a true partnership with handlers. Energetic dogs learn control, shy dogs gain confidence, and owners have a great time!

Activity level: Flyball is strenuous for dog and handlers.

Flyball is a four dog relay race in which each dog must jump over four hurdles; trigger a spring-loaded box that releases a tennis ball, dog grabs the tennis ball and races back to the finish line. Whew! Can your dog do this?
