What is Flyball?
Flyball is a relay race with four dogs on a team. The course consists of a start/finish line, four hurdles spaced 10 feet apart and a box. The first hurdle is 6 feet from the start/finish line and the box is 15 feet from the last hurdle. The dogs jump the hurdles and turn on the box to release the ball. They then return back over the hurdles with the ball to their handler. When the dog crosses the start/finish line the next dog goes. The first team to have all 4 dogs run without errors wins the heat. Each heat consists of 2 teams in a knockout race.

Training is currently held on Sunday mornings from 10.15am untill 12 noon at Auchincruive. Information about the team can be found on their Facebook page. Please contact us through the page if you are interested in joining us. New members are always welcome!
