The Landsharks Flyball Club is focused on positive and encouraging training methods including foundation work, body conditioning and appropriate exercises for your dog. Our dogs are first and foremost our pets. Flyball is so great because dogs and people work together as a team. Our club is very inclusive and has some who face some health challenges. We work within everyone’s abilities. We have some junior handlers right up to an octogenarian!
We draw members from Hastings, Prince Edward and Lennox Counties. Weekly practices are held in Napanee, Ontario
Teamwork is an important part of being on our club – each member is important – both handlers and dogs. Handlers play an active roll in helping other members in all training stages, as well as racing and hosting tournaments. Every member is encouraged to set goals and achievements are celebrated at all levels!
We host popular tournaments each year, so come on out and see what Flyball is all about. Looking to get started with us? Check out our website and contact us about joining in our weekly practices. www.landsharks.com
“Zoom!” is a flyball club focused on team spirit, encouragement and fun (and maybe a slight preoccupation with food)! We are proud of the diversity of our team, our dogs and the fun we have playing flyball together. Our crew is made up of Shelties, Border Collies, Mini-Bull Terrier, Cane Corso, Whippets, Rat Terriers, Parson Russell, Boston Terriers, German Short-Haired Pointer, Labrador Retrievers, Australian Shepherds, Mixed Breeds, Berger de Pyrenees and we even had an English Bulldog on the team. So yes, any dog can play Flyball!
really does take a village to train a Flyball dog and we try to embody that in
our team philosophy. Every dog learns at their own speed, with their own
challenges to overcome. But typically you can expect it to take about a year to
get a new dog ready to race.
to break into a new dog sport with your dog can be challenging – but there are
few ways to get introduced to the world of Flyball. We would be happy to talk
to anyone interested in trying this sport and provide you with a few options
for getting started.

The dogs on our club range in speed from under 3.4 seconds (to run 50 feet over four hurdles, catch the ball off the spring loaded box, and return over the jumps to the finish line!) to over 5.0 seconds. We strive for each dog to realize their full potential and celebrate each goal reached – be it a personal-best time, a NAFA points goal, a Regional, NAFA or CanAm Championship (the annual championship event held in Indianapolis, IN).
SPRINGLOADED is both an American and Canadian Club that loves to be competitive and have fun. We generally host two NAFA tournaments per year and we love to have fun themes, and have people and dogs dress up in costumes and have a blast! Past themes have included Celebrate Canada, Flower Power, and Superheroes!
Although we are not recruiting new members at this time (we are at a size where we quite often run six teams of dogs at a tournament!) our Team Captain, Kelly Price, can offer introductory lessons and/or connect you with other clubs in Region 2 who are looking for new members.
