MORE ABOUT FLYBALL

 

Flyball is a race that matches two teams of four dogs each, racing side-by-side over a 51 foot long course that has 4 jumps and a flyball box at the end..

Each dog must run in relay fashion down the jumps, trigger a flyball box that releases a ball, (typically a tennis ball), the dog must retrieve the ball, and return back over the jumps to the start/finish line.

The next dog is released to run the course but can't cross the start/finish line until the previous dog has returned over all 4 jumps and reached the start/finish line. The first team to have all 4 dogs finish the course without error wins the heat.

Jump height is determined by the smallest dog on the team – this dog, called the "height dog", is measured at the withers, then that number is rounded down to the nearest inch and another 5" is subtracted to get the jump height (with the minimum jump height being 7"). So a 13 1/4" dog would round down to 13", minus 5", would jump 8". Maximum jump height is 14".

PSNEA was well represented at this years Rose City Classic Meet The Breeds event held in conjunction with the Rose City Classic All Breed Dog Show. Not pictured are Dennis Bell & LOKI.

 

A highlight for PSNEA at this years show was a seminar for judges looking to add Norwegian Elkhounds to their credentials taught by Patricia Trotter. PSNEA supported Ms Trotter by providing some of the dogs she used in the seminar and we were invited to attend the lecture. It was a special treat to listen to a long time championship breeder and judge teach how to properly evaluate Elkhounds.
