WHAT IS FLYBALL?

Flyball is a race between two teams of dogs. The dogs compete by running down two parallel lanes over 4 low hurdles, where they must then collect a tennis ball from a spring loaded box before racing back over the hurdles to their handler to release the next dog.

 

The first team to have all 4 dogs finish is declared the winner!
