|What is Flyball|
Flyball races match two teams of four dogs each, racing side-by-side over a 51 foot long course. Each dog must run in relay fashion down the jumps, trigger a flyball box, releasing the ball, retrieve the ball, and return over the jumps. The next dog is released to run the course but can't cross the start/finish line until the previous dog has returned over all 4 jumps and reached the start/finish line. The first teams to have all 4 dogs finish the course without error wins the heat.
Flyball began in California in the 70s and has grown over the years. Today you can find flyball leagues in many parts of the world. RUFF competes in NAFA sanctioned events.
