Alpha Dogz Flyball team was formed in October 2007 by a group of close friends and flyball enthusiasts, We have members from Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Birmingham.
Flyball is an ever growing dog sport enjoyed by people all over the world. Flyball in the UK started in 1994 when the British Flyball Association was formed, since then it has grown rapidly in numbers and enthusiasm.
Flyball is a relay race for dogs with 4 dogs in a team racing another team in the opposing lane. The first team with 4 dogs that have completed without a fault are declared the winners of the leg and it is usually the best of 5 legs.
Teams in the UK compete in BFA sanctioned tournaments all over the country enjoying spending time with our dogs and other like minded people, often camping in our caravans and tents at weekends over the summer (& Winter).
Any one who has a dog can do Flyball, dogs and humans can be any size or ability, All you really need is a recall and a serious obsession with a tennis ball (thats the dogs!!!) and the humans need to be fun loving and have a serious obsession with your dog(s)!!!.
For further information on this fantastic dog sport, please take a look at our links page.
