Unconventional Flyball Box Training

Well my experiment continues. I’m having fun trying different things with Jet’s flyball box. My concern is to get his rear up on the box, and pushing off the box, while the ball is in play. He has a great flyball box turn when there is no ball. But once the ball is in play, he forgets he has a rear and doesn’t use it to push off the box.

The below is a continuation of my idea… this time with a ramp. We did this training on March 11, 2011.

My husband helped me build this ramp and so far, so good. Here’s more training from the following day, March 12, 2011.

The videos are rather self explanatory I think, I’ve put text on them with my thoughts about what I’m doing.

I’ve modified the method a bit and I’ll post that up next. I wish I had some outdoor lighting fixtures so that I could train outdoors. But then, the weather needs to warm up too!

  1. I can’t see the videos from this computer but looking forward to seeing them later. I have a 3 yr old lab mix who competes in flyball. Her swimmer’s turn has not been consistent in the last few months and I want to fix that asap. I am always interested in reading different approaches to training and look forward to reading your blog!
