Team sport for dogs

dog-fly-ballFly ball is a fast paced sport in which the first of four relay dogs begins at a starting line, races over four hurdles ten feel apart and runs fifteen more feet to a fly ball box. There he presses a spring loaded pad to release a ball which he carries back over the same track to his owner. When he crosses the line, the second dog races off. Each team consists of four dogs of any breed or mixed breed. The hurdle height is determined by the shoulder height of the teams smallest dog. For this reason, teams welcome small dogs who could run and jump with speed and precision. The objective in fly ball is to win the race without dropping the ball or having any dog start before the previous dog has crossed the finish line. Remember to take plenty of dog treats along with you to entice your dog to win!
