Class has started, but it's not too late to join in! You will be able to see all of the lessons regardless of when you enroll.

This course is ideal for learning the fundamentals of dog sports with a focus on beginner flyball training. The behaviors you learn will transition seamlessly into the advanced mechanics required in executing a flyball pattern.

  • Tugging/toy play
  • Driving away from handler
  • Building work ethic
  • Retrieving an object
  • Targeting all feet
  • Recalling to you
  • Focusing around distractions
  • Controlling arousal
  • Committing to jumps
  • Controlling impulses
  • Hind end power
  • Developing body awareness
