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.

We use our time outdoors on grass and mats to provide our dogs with additional focus and generalization skills.  This environment allows us to work distance, distraction, and endurance.  If you are interested in training for competitive flyball and need help, feel free to drop us a line so we can schedule you into one of our practice sessions...

Both Beginner Flyball Foundations and Advanced Flyball Skills classes are offered by our team.   Our flyball training program is based on proven techniques developed by Aaron Robbins of Rocket Relay and Strive Dogs.  It follows a modern, detailed foundations plan for dog sports and handlers.  The behaviors you learn in our foundations program will transition seamlessly into advanced mechanics required for competition.  Flyball training classes are taught by Fighting For Freedom Flyball Club members.
