What is flyball?

Flyball is a teamsport where 2 teams run side to side with 4 dogs. Each dog runs at their turn over 4 obstacles to the flyball box.

In this box there’s a tennisball. The dog pushes the ball out with the pressure from his front legs and have to deliver the ball as quickly as possible to his owner / guide.

Obviously he has to go back over the hurdles. The dog must be over the start/finish line before the next dog goes over the startline. To lose as little as possible time, the dogs are trained to cross nose to nose at the start/ finish grid.


Unfortunally, you can have a too speedy change, lightning the number of lamp of the racing dog. Then this dog has to run again.

Other mistakes are: a start too soon, run next to the hurdles, losing the ball, a dog running to the other competitors, …

The dogs can not start at the starting line. To get on full speed, the dog starts several meters before this line. This is the flying start.

The competition

In a game 2 teams race against each other.
The team with the racing dogs come in as first without mistakes wins the run.

A race exist of 3 (best of three) or 5 (best of five) runs.
The choice for 3 or 5 depends from the organisation.

After the for rounds, the game continues in a double drop out.
In other words, the winner continues in the tournament.
A team losing 2 races, is eliminated.
