Flyball is a relay sport for dogs. Teams of four dogs race against other teams by jumping over hurdles, to get to a box that releases a tennis ball. The dogs must each catch the ball and run back over the hurdles to you, carrying the ball.
Flyball is great mental and physical exercise for your dog and a lot of fun for both of you! Flyball is a very exciting sport.
