Flyball Training

***SORRY - WE ARE FULL AT PRESENT***

Our training is done through a series of courses throughout the year, these are run over 6 weeks with each lesson lasting 45 minutes.   You will be taught everything you need to know in training your dog for flyball and each week you and your dog will be given homework.  Our trainers have attended seminars held by World renown trainers from Canada.

Please bring with you your dog’s favourite toy. From experience we would recommend a tuggy as this will become your dogs high value reward throughout all training and flyball. 

You will be responsible for your dog and should ensure you have control of them at all times. They should be on a lead at times when you are waiting your turn.  Please wear comfortable footwear and have poo bags available.  It is your responsibility to clear up after your dog.

We welcome all breeds of dogs. The only requirements we have for dogs wishing to join us are that they are over 6 months old, are physically fit, and have basic obedience. We would always recommend that your dog has a healthcheck with yout vet before starting Flyball.

Flyball training can be thirsty work for you and the dog! Water and bowls are provided for all dogs, humans need to supply their own drinks! Also, should your dog urinate on the equipment you should rinse it immediately.

Harsh Handling is unacceptable and will NOT be tolerated!!

Winter Tips

Dog's feet are not weather proof. Snow is especially harsh. Snow can ball up in-between the dogs toes and cause irritation, cuts and tenderness. Dogs often chew at this frozen snow, pulling out fur and in some cases chunks of their pads. Granular or frozen snow on the other hand is equivalent to course sandpaper and is extremely abrasive on pads.

Icy or hard, frozen ground can be sharp making dogs paws susceptible to being cut and grazed as they slide across these rough surfaces. Watch for chewing at paws during long walks or periods of play. Always wipe dog’s feet after a walk in the snow to remove ice, snow melt and salt deposits from the road (salt irritates a dog’s paws and can be toxic if ingested during grooming and can cause kidney failure).  As a preventative measure apply petroleum jelly on paws to protect against cracks and scratches during cold months.
