Flyball is a relay race between two teams of four dogs.  Racing side by side, one dog from each team must go over four hurdles, trigger a flyball box pedal, catch a ball and then return over all four hurdles to the start/finish line.  The next dog eagerly awaiting then repeats these steps. 

Flyball is a sport founded on the activities that dogs love - running, jumping, fetching, retrieving, and with their competitive spirit to please their owners. 
This sport is open to all dog types regardless of size, breed, shape and no formal training is needed. 

Meets are held in divisions of performance base - the quickest team is put in first division and slower divisions follow sequentially.
