Dog Sports Saskatoon
Overdrive dogsports was formed in 2010 by a fun, enthusiastic, group of people who wanted to get out and play with their dogs. The goals of our club revolve around the fitness, health, and promoting the well-being of man’s best friend as well as providing a team atmosphere for the none canine members. We have a great time both at tournaments and practice with lots of enthusiasm and a good sense of humor being the only prerequisites of our club.
We believe any dog can learn to play flyball. We use training techniques taught by Rocket Relay, Touch ‘N Go, and other top teams as well as incorporating what we have learnt from our very best teachers, our dogs. We are constantly updating our training techniques in order to get the very best from every dog on our team. Whether your dog runs under 4 seconds or over 7 we spend as much individual time is necessary on each dog in order to maximize their potential. All dogs that can complete the full run safely are provided the opportunity to run in tournaments.
We are an active flyball club and travel to tournaments in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario. We try our best to make teams that are competitive in their divisions while maximizing the points and titles earned by each of our dogs. We emphasize the team aspect with everyone helping out and participating at tournaments as they can.
Does your dog have lots of energy?
We are one of Saskatoon’s most active flyball clubs participating in tournaments in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and the USA. Composed of a group of people that want to have fun with our dogs while keeping with the idea that they are our pets, family and friends first, then crazy wild competitors! We strive to ensure flyball is a fun experience for both dog and handler, an experience that helps build that special bond we have with our dogs. Most success in flyball is measured in points and run times; we like to measure success by how much enjoyment we get playing this exciting sport with our dogs. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about the fast paced sport of flyball or joining one of our classes.
What is flyball?
Flyball is a fast paced 4-dog relay race between competing teams. Racing side by side each dog runs in relay fashion over 4 jumps, triggers the flyball box, catches a tennis ball, and return over all four jumps to the start/finish line where the next dog eagerly waits. The fist team to get all four dogs over the start/finish line without error wins the race. Flyball encompasses all the things a dog loves to do, jumping, catching, retrieving, competing, and striving to please their owners. It is a sport that any dog can participate in regardless of shape, size, or breed.
