Flyball : Step-by-Step n Mr. Rambo

This afternoon Ms Owner went for a date with Mr. John Rambo at Mid Valley. Soon as she reach home, she told the family 'no spagetti for the day'. Humans being blast off like minced meat, bloody flesh and beheaded humans, n etc etc. Urg...! But nonetheless, great action pack with lotsa bombs and machine guns! Worth your every penny.


By the way, we heard that flyball competition is around the corner, probably this June. As usual, Pacco de Mongrel wouldn't wanna feel left out. But only once a week practise wouldn't make much improvement on my skills. I'm facing trouble with the flyball box.

So Ms Owner yet again, using her great imaginative skill work, came up with DIY flyball box that doesn't cost us a penny.

1st - Learn to step on a wooden plank




2nd - Elevated it a little


3rd - put the wood plank on the slope resemble a flyball box


4th - learn to retrieve while stepping at the same time


5th - replace wooden plank with different material


After a couple of season, I roughly got the idea of it. But I looks a little awkward when I was ask to 'stay' and strike a pose. We are looking forward to put our skill for test this Sunday. Can't wait for it! Paw crossed.

By the way, for those who are interested in flyball training, we found an interesting read by Kelly Price for 'Swimmer's Turn'. Although I don't fancy swimming, but swimmer's turn should worth a try.

Hi Pacco! You're pure black, I'm pure white. I'm a boy, you're a girl. You can jump, I prefer to lie down. Opposites attract.

Can you hear me now? I'm barking all the way from New York!

Barks,
Biggie

Amber-Mae said...

OMdoG! You got me all excited Pacco! A Flyball competition? I wanna wanna wanna join!!! But I've never learned how to use that box. At my training grounds, the ball flies towards my face. Who's organizing the Flyball competition? Btw, I don't think I can ever do the Swimmer's turn as I'm not a fast dog like you...

Love licks,

Pacco, you have the perfect physique for flyball. Hope you do well. Can't wait to see pics. We've seen dogs doing flyball before and it looks great fun. I Noah would be hopeless. I'm a big bumbling bear.

I think Louie and I would be great at that flyball stuff. We can jump really high and we love to chase the ball. Dad is trying to get us into a herding class since that is what blue heelers do best. He found this place pretty close so we are hoping..
