Extreme Dog Team Sport: FlyBall!

Flyball was invented in the early 70′s and was first showcased on The Johnny Carson show. Unlike agility or dock diving, where individual dogs compete (perhaps even on a team), flyball is completely a team sport.

Dogs race over hurdles spaced 10 feet apart to capture a tennis ball which appears from a box. They then return to the starting point, and another picks up the race like a relay. The hurdles are placed according the dog’s height, like in basketball dogs are assigned roles check out this video to see flyball in action.
