WELCOME TO BOISE FLYDOGS!
Let's Play Flyball..
We will be meeting at the Harold Cox Field (weather permitting) next to Storey Bark Park in Meridian at 9:30 on Sundays. If you want to be part of the fun you'll need a free evaluation done and the cost will be $20 for the hour of training. We will only be able to take 5 new dogs at a time FCFS, so get there early to have a spot. All funds raised goes to Boise FlyDogs club.
All Breeds and All Speeds!
It's all about having fun and connecting with your dog.
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, or agility. Flyball involves two lanes of hurdles, a spring loaded box with a tennis ball ready for trigger by your dog, and within each lane two dogs are off leash at the same time, one is retrieving and the other is returning. Both lanes run at the same time which means 4 dogs are off leash at the same time! Your pooch needs to have good recall and basic obedience skills before taking lessons in flyball.
If you aren't sure if you pooch is ready, please reach out and inquire. In general, if your dog is reactive to other dogs, has a chase instinct, doesn't retrieve, we have great trainers that we can refer you to.
