Pax Flyball Training

Flyball training with Pax is going well. He is easy to train so far! I was expecting major challenges and maybe those challenges are still yet to present themselves. In team practice, I havent been able to set up a distracting environment for him yet.

Head to head recalls without baby gates - no problem. I think a head to head ball retrieve might be a problem because he does like to race other dogs for the ball. Im not worried about it because he is so ball and tug driven. I think/hope he won't have issues with other dogs in the flyball setting.

At home we are working on ball retrieves, as he likes to do several laps before bringing the ball back. And we are working on forming his box turn. Here is some video of his wall training.
