Trailblazers Flyball Team


We are delighted to welcome Trailblazers Flyball Team who will run 2 displays during our Open Day on 9th September (please see itinerary for the day's events).


Flyball is a high adrenaline, fast paced, energetic and fun sport for all ages, abilities and breeds where two teams of dogs go head to head in a relay race. The aim is for each individual dog (4 per team) to pass through a set of sensor gates, jump over four hurdles, trigger the flyball box to release a ball, catch the ball and then return over all four jumps carrying said ball. The dog then needs to allow the next dog to pass, nose to nose, into the lane via the sensor gate. All the while an opposing team is doing the very same in the other lane. Each team is attempting to complete the sequence, cleanly, in the fastest time possible.


Trailblazers is a socially competitive Flyball club who train in Coventry.  They take part in Open Competitions and have been very busy during the month of August including the BFA Outdoor Championships at Catton Hall in Walton upon Trent.


For more info, please visit: or you can see Trailblazers in action on YouTube. 



Temptation Alley - running periodically throughout the day


Have a go and test your dog's resolve in our Temptation Alley. Your dog will be enticed by toys as they head down the alley and it is the owner's job to call them back to them in the fastest time possible. The aim of the game is for your dog to avoid the temptations and get to you without grabbing or playing with the toys. There is a prize for the quickest time of the day!


Fun to watch - Come and see if your dog is easily tempted!!

Open to all breeds and ages.
