Redlands Flyball was established in February 2010 as part of the Redlands Dog Obedience Club.
We welcome all those interested in doing flyball training from beginners to advanced. Our experienced instructors will take you through each step from beginner level through to competition standard.
What is Flyball ?
Flyball is a relay race for dogs. Two teams of 4 dogs,
race against each other in the competition area. Races are usually best of five heats with the team finishing first with all four dogs completing the course first will be the winner. Flyball is a fast action sport for dogs of all breeds and sizes, and competitions are held throughout south-east Queensland on a regular basis . At RDOC we train the dogs to use the equipment in a safe and efficient manner to ensure dogs progress quickly, safely and enjoy themselves.
