Dog Agility Fun Fly Ball

Setting Up Your Fly Ball

  • Find a safe flat area of grass to set up your Fly Ball.
  • Remove the Fly Ball Box from its packaging.
  • Unclip and pull open the frame of the Fly Ball Box until you hear a click. The Fly Ball Box is now ready to use.
  • To launch the ball, your dog must push the Target pad (large nonslip footplate).
  • To fold the Fly Ball Box, release the clip on each side of the frame and slide the frame closed until it locks.
Training Tips
Before you introduce your dog to the Fly Ball Box, you must train your dog to associate catching a ball with touching a target. To do this, make a target using a piece of cardboard or carpet tile about the same size as the Target Pad on the Fly Ball Box.

To train your dog in Fly Ball, it is best to have two people, one as a Handler and the other as Instructor.

Start by putting the Instructor behind the target, while the dog and Handler six feet in front of it. With a ball visible to the dog in the Instructors hand, encourage the dog forward with a word like "STEP." When the dog touches the target, throw the ball to the dog. This is a basic behavior-shaping exercise with the ball as the reward. Repeat this exercise and your dog should pounce on the target to get the ball.

You can now transfer this behavior to the Fly Ball Box by leaning the target on the front of the Fly Ball Box. Continue to use the Instructor to toss the ball until the dog is happy with the presence of the Fly Ball Box and then rely on the Fly Ball Box to throw the ball. At this point, you can dispense with the target. The Instructor can now become the Ball Loader and must position their foot on the footplate on the base of the Fly Ball Box frame to ensure the Fly Ball Box doesn't move when the dog hits the target. This is very important for safe use of the product.

As your dogs skills improve with the Fly Ball Box, additional agility exercises, such as Weave Poles, Jump Bars and Hoop Jumps can be introduced to increase the fun and development of your dog's agility skills.
