Training

Flyball Lessons

  • Flyball lessons teach your dog how to go over a series of jumps and trigger a flyball box to retrieve a ball.
  • The lessons teach your dog how to focus on you and the jumps as well as learning to pass another dog at a running speed.
  • Please note that this sport is not recommended for dogs with agression issues.

What is Flyball?

Please note: Flyball training for rookie dogs is currently on-going. Formal lessons are not scheduled for the Fall Session. Feel free to complete a training inquiry form if interested in future opportunities.


Agility Lessons

  • Agility lessons teach your dog how to do the different pieces of equipment safely and with speed and how to focus on you while running.
  • The lessons teach you how to motivate and control your dog on and between each obstacle. At more advanced levels the training focuses on your handling skills, teaching you how to get the best performance from your dog.
  • Matsqui Flyball & Agility Club uses positive training methods, with lots of praise and rewards for the dog. The instructor does not teach your dog, but shows you how to be the teacher.

What is Agility?

Please note: Agility lessons will begin this Fall in late September. Check on our Facebook page or check back here for more information on Registration dates and times.


Training Inquiry

We are currently experiencing a large wait list for training in both sports (in excess of 40 dogs). To get your dog started prior to coming for training please work on your dog’s focus on you along with basic obedience – sit, stay & come. Thank you for your patience.

  • Minimum dog age required to participate, check prior to submitting form.
  • Applicants should be aware that vaccinations are recommended by MFAC.
  • Dogs must be able to ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and come when called.
  • Please keep your dogs on leash and under control at all times and tell us if your dog has issues with other dogs or people.
  • If you have an aggresive dog, we ask that you seek assistance from a trainer that specializes in behaviour training prior to registration.
