The ultimate goal of The Barkinn Bandits Flyball club is to develop each dog and handler to the peak of their ability, as they become reliable teammates and part of our cohesive, fun Flyball team!
Practice and classes are held on Sundays
Because this is a team sport, all dogs must be non-aggressive, have basic obedience skills (comes when called) and be current on all 3 annual vaccinations (Bordetella, Rabies, Distemper).
Dogs should be at least 6 months old to begin training. For safety reasons, dogs under 1 year old will NOT do any hurdle jumping. For these young participants we will cover ground exercises, recall drills, and introduction to equipment.
The total cost of the 6 week Flyball training course is only $125.00.
