GOALS, DREAMS & AMBITIONS ARE THE FIRST STEP TO

SUCCESS

THE SECOND STEP IS

ACTION

Competitive Training and Foundations

Fighting For Freedom Flyball Club trains our canine athelets to race at their peak performance in a safe, consistent environment. Our club mantra is to run strong, push our passes, and finish fast with zero regrets.  We achieve this goal through constant updates of our training methods and equipment as teams get faster and speeds increase in competition racing.

 

The most important element of long-term success for competition is understanding the sport.  This is often overlooked to "get the dogs running" as quickly as possible. And though repetition is a key to growth, learning by repetitive and forced behaviors is not how to create long-term success for you and your dog(s).

Fighting For Freedom builds our training program around key flyball and dog sports core components.  This ensures our canine athletes understand the technical skills they are performing. Our methodology helps to prevent mental blocks by creating a strong foundation of confidence and knowledge. Combining this knowledge with the fundamentals of engagement training creates a far more advanced athlete down the road. 

 

To keep pace with the ever changing flyball environment, we host and attend several advanced flyball seminars throughout the season.  This allows us to learn from world record holders and successful competitors at the peak of their career.  We host 2 practices weekly and a varity of classes and seminars to encourage participation in flyball and introduce new dog sports enthusiasts to the speed and excitement of neck to neck racing.

Join us for some fun with your existing or future flyball dog!
