Recently one of our Technicians here at Gentle Care Animal Hospital, Erin R., participated in a flyball tournament at the NC State Fairgrounds. She competes in a Dog Gone Fast team based out of Pet Behavior Help in Chapel Hill. The team’s website is being updated but you can still visit it at

Erin R. has been involved in flyball for approximately the last 5 years. Dylan, a 6 year old Australian Shepherd Mix, was her first partner in flyball (see photo below). They are still actively competing. Fly and Sprite are the newest editions to her family, both Shetland Sheepdogs, are still in the straining phase.

Flyball is a fun way to interact with your pet and people without having to worry about breed, form, or standards. Flyball is open to anyone or any dog with the desire to learn, get lots of treats, and bond with each other.

I recently took a beginner class at Pet Behavior Help with my 5 ½ year old Boston terrier, Melbourne. We had a blast and I totally recommend it to anyone! There are 2 upcoming NAFA tournaments. Go Dog Go is hosting one in Hillsborough on the weekend of October 25th and 26th and Hairier Jump Jets is hosting one in Courtland, VA.
