We love racing at tournaments but we also enjoy many other events we do with our team. One of our biggest demonstrations we participate in is the Escondido Humane Society’s “Paws in the Park“. Demos are a great way to educate the public about flyball but are also a great way for new dogs to get accustomed to a tournament-like environment.

Sometimes a few weeks before an event we are asked to make an appearance on TV. This helps to promote the occasion and generates enthusiasm among our team mates. Tuesday March 11th was one of these special days. We were asked by Katie Woolsey of the Escondido Humane Society to join her at Channel 6 on the “San Diego Living” show. At the station we ran an abbreviated one jump course with three different breeds of dogs being represented, giving the public just a taste of the fun of flyball.

We had such a great time as you can see from the pictures and video working with Laura Cavanaugh (Channel 6), Tiffany Frowiss (Channel 6) and Katie Woolsey (Escondido Humane Society), and of course our dogs.

Ballistic Racers Flyball Team put on an excellent flyball demonstration for the Polo spectators on Sunday afternoon July 7th 2013. The crowd watched and was amazed to see training techniques and various line-ups with all sizes, shapes and breeds of dogs. Many spectators had never seen the sport of flyball, a relay race for “Man’s Best Friend”.

Ballistic Racers even had their own Polo player on the team, Linda Drabova, with her dog Indie. Indie is one of the “height dogs” on the team. He and all the other small dogs on the team play a very important role, by keeping the height of the hurdles down.

It was a fun and enjoyable afternoon with a smile on every face at the Polo Match in Del Mar!
