Flygility is a dog sport that mixes elements of agility and flyball. As in flyball the dog is sent to fetch a ball from a flyball machine and returns the ball to the handler. The dogs may start this sport from the age of 12 months.
Flygility courses can be longer than in flyball, 30 metres from start line to the box, and use agility obstacles.

 Useful Hints, Tips and Other Stuff

  • Remember that dogs are individuals and a method of training that may work with one dog, may not necessarily work with yours.  By having fun with your dog, you will bond with him/her and discover what exactly makes your dog tick.
  • Flygility is a highly intensive sport that can be exhausting to novice dogs.  Our training sessions will be short and sweet.  Try to end on a positive note and be aware that a tired dog doesn’t learn and certainly won’t be enjoying itself.
  • Dogs are sensitive creatures and deserve to be treated with respect.  We encourage handlers not to say “no” to their dogs as flygility is meant to be fun.  Most errors are handler errors and are not down to the dog.
  • Competitions are regularly held around the country:
