WELCOME TO BOISE FLYDOGS!
Let's play flyball
Our practices in the winter months will be at Temptation Arena @2933 N Locust Grove Rd, Kuna on Friday evenings starting at 5:30-7:45 pm.
We invite the public to come out to the arena anytime we're there- feel free to bring your dogs (on a leash) and watch us in action or ask any questions.
All funds raised goes to Boise FlyDogs club. We are a not for profit club.
It's all about having fun with teammates and connecting with all the dogs.
IN THE NEWS
is a canine TEAM sport!
All canine sports except flyball are solo dog and handler pairs working, whether it be rally, obedience, disc, dock, lure, frisbee or agility. Flyball is unique because it involves two lanes of hurdles 10' apart and up to 14" high, a spring loaded box with a tennis ball that is released when the dog does a swimmers turn on it. Within each lane there are up to four dogs along with 4 humans in ready to race their dogs to be released to run down the lane one at a time, just like a relay race. Both lanes run at the same time, which means 8 dogs can be off leash at the same time! This race is timed to the 1000th of a second and the one that has the fastest time with no fouls is the winner of that one heat. With up to 5 heats in a race your dog must be physically fit to do that kind of work.
All pups need to have great recall and basic obedience skills before participating in flyball.
In general, if your dog is reactive to other dogs, reactive to humans or has overly obsessive behaviors with inability to retrieve, we have great trainers that we can refer you to.
FREE EVALUATIONS 1st and 3rd Friday's only
We are not looking for untrained dogs, we must have pups that have a solid recalls, they can not be aggressive to humans or other dogs. A high drive dog with intensity is a dog that will work best for Flyball. Most of all we need owners with ability to teach their dog new behaviors through positive trainings and understand what working within a team sport is all about.
It's so exciting to see such a friendly group of dog lovers come together in Boise to bond with their dogs and have fun!
We're so glad we stumbled upon this group! Flyball has helped us learn valuable communication skills with our dogs and has given us a fantastic outlet for our dogs to grow in confidence, play, and exercise! - Ariel

Dogs learn at their own speed and we take our time to teach them as individuals. Don't we all work better when we can do it at our own pace?!?
We could be looking to add a few teammates/dogs to our club. If you're interested in
being on a fast moving team of dogs and learning the fundamentals of Flyball,
traveling to different states and being a positive team member, we would love to talk
Positive Reinforcement only (no spray bottles, no chokers, electronics etc.) Lot's of yummy treats, tug games and pets are given all around to our dogs.
All Dogs and Handlers need to understand this is a Team Sport that includes many
dogs, along with people of all types that must be able to work together.
We all come together with each of the dogs on our team to help guide and
brainstorm to benefit and build up our team.
High Energy & FUN!
We have some pretty exciting pups learning how to play Flyball right now! Keep your eyes peeled.....

We also have a beautiful sleek black lab girl, named Molly and her helpful human Ulana from Montana to add to our growing team of Flyballers!!
Flyball in Idaho
We start out slowly....
and gradually learn new skills along the way!
When you're learning Flyball with your dog it's a great way to learn to communicate and bond.
We invite you to come and watch any time with your dog (leashed please!).
