What is Flyball

Flyball races match two teams of four dogs each, racing side-by-side over a 51 foot long course. Each dog must run in relay fashion down the jumps, trigger a flyball box, releasing the ball, retrieve the ball, and return over the jumps. The next dog is released to run the course but can't cross the start/finish line until the previous dog has returned over all 4 jumps and reached the start/finish line. The first teams to have all 4 dogs finish the course without error wins the heat.

Flyball began in California in the 70s and has grown over the years. Today you can find flyball leagues in many parts of the world.  RUFF competes in NAFA sanctioned events.

Who We Are

RUFF is a Denver, Colorado based all volunteer non-profit organization committed to support rescue organizations both financially and by performing volunteer work.

RUFF’s educational program encourages responsible dog ownership by strengthening the owner/dog relationship.  RUFF supports the community providing multiple demonstrations at fundraising events.  We attend several tournaments throughout the year, both locally and across the country.  Please check our calendar for upcoming events and tournaments.  Learn More....

Can I Play?

Yes! Dogs of all breeds and sizes can play. The sport is not limited to big ball crazy dogs though - the jump height is set by the height of the smallest dog on the team. Little dogs such as Jack Russells, Rat Terriers, small mixes, etc. are very important members of the team.

RUFF’s training curriculum consists of foundation, beginning and intermediate flyball classes held at Jefferson County Fairgrounds.  If you think you and your dog would enjoy playing flyball, please see our Education Page or email for more information.

However, please note that dogs that are aggressive to people or other dogs would not do well in this sport.
