Flyball is a relay race between two teams of four dogs. Each dog goes over four
jumps, triggers a box to release a ball, and then carries the ball back over the
four jumps. The dogs pass nose to nose at the start line. If a dog makes an error,
such as missing a jump, dropping the ball, or passing too early, they run again.
The first team to successfully complete the course wins. Dogs of all sizes & breeds
(including mixes) compete. It’s a great sport for dogs with lots of energy to burn.
