Monroe, MI

We recently came back from our first trip to Monroe, Michigan.  It was a learning experience for the new dogs, Sam and Deeva.

Deeva ran in her first NAFA tournament.  She ran a few heats and one complete race.  It was an experience for both Deeva and Debbie!

Sam came through like a trooper.  He got chased down the lane by two separate dogs, fed the wrong ball twice, and never faltered.

The experienced dogs Spirit, Rat, and Twitch were joined by Pippin.  We had a great time.  We're now focusing on the CanAm coming soon.  See previous post for details.

NAFA Nationals

We are excited that the NAFA Nationals are going to be held again in Indianapolis on October 8-10.  The even will be held at the Indianapolis Fairgrounds and will be exciting not only to all those participating, but to observers as well.

Flyball is an exciting team sport which pits two teams of  four dogs against each other in a relay race.  Each dog on the team must successfully complete jumping over four jumps placed ten feet apart, release the ball from the box, and return over the four jumps while carrying the ball across the finish line.  The next dog will complete the same course, until all four dogs have completed the race.  The fastest team with no errors wins. 

Not only will you see great racing and dog athletes, but there will also be some great shopping!
