Flyball is a team relay race with four dogs in each team.
Originating in the United States, the sport came to Britain over
a decade ago and is still gaining in popularity.
The object of the race is for each dog to jump four low hurdles,
trigger a 'Flyball Box', catch the tennis ball and return over
the jumps to the start and finish line. The dogs start a long
way behind the start line so that they can cross the line at
speed, this means that the handlers must judge the exact moment
to release the dog so they pass, nose to nose, at the line. As
soon as the first dog is back the second can go, and so on until
all four dogs have returned with their balls. The first team to
have all four dogs back without fault wins that particular race.
Our flyball teams are delighted and excited to be back at
the Tattoo this year and are very proud to have this opportunity
to bring you into the world of flyball at such a prestigious
