Do you want to give it a try?

If you think both you and your dog would like to give flyball a try please get in touch with Sue or Sam and they can let you know when our next courses start,  there are three different starter courses;

Foundation - Ideal for puppies, no jumping just running between wings and retrieving a ball, chasing a tuggy.

Young dogs - From 5/6 months (depending on breed and size) learning all the components of flyball, from the jumps to developing a safe swimmers turn. 

Older dog - From 2 years, as the young dogs but in a seperate group as they can take more work in a session as all muscles and bones are formed.
