ABOUT FLYGILITY

We are a small, friendly group of flyball and agility fans, located in Bassetlaw, North Nottinghamshire.

Our aim is to provide fun affordable flyball and agility training.


We do ensure that you get good sound advice and that up to date training techniques are given to you.


And although the emphasis is fun, some of our members do compete with their dogs.

AGILITY

Our Agility training begins with simple easy to follow exercises.

Both you and your dog will learn to work together as a team, learning how to negotiate courses in the fastest possible time, incurring as little faults as possible.

While it sometimes goes wrong, the pleasure you get when it all comes together is very rewarding indeed.

Dogs that have not fully grown are welcome to attend our foundation training sessions to learn direction commands and obstacle discrimination. Equipment will be set very low and may have poles laid on the floor.  

This is primarily to prevent any damage to growing bones which could lead to detrimental health issues later in the dogs life.

FLYBALL

4 Hurdles are set out in a racing lane 51’0” long to Standard (BFA) flyball regulations.  The dog runs down the lane retrieves the ball and returns.  

Flyball is a team sport for dogs, with a team consisting of 4 dogs.  Dogs learn to perfect the ball retrieve in a relay format passing each other at the start line by whisker.  

While Flyball clubs can take competitions very serious and teams from all over the country compete together most weekends, they can be great fun and these all day/weekend events can often be good social meetings.
