A Ballistic Racers Flyball feature set to air Tuesday night, June 24th, at 10:30pm on #SDLive directly after Padres Live on FOX Sports San Diego.

#SDLive airs one show a week. The show continues to re-air throughout the week, so you have several chances to catch The Ballistic Racers Flyball feature! For example, the show will air Tuesday night but then again Wednesday morning at 11:00 am and 4:30 pm. It will also air over the weekend.

Normally #SDLive airs as scheduled, but during baseball season the shows tends to air an hour of so after schedule depending on how late the Padres game goes. Last week #SDLive aired at 11pm when it was scheduled for 10pm. For now, though, anticipate Tuesday 10:30pm, Wednesday 11am and 4:30pm.

Enjoy the show!

One of the best finds for any type of dog treat is the “Cadaver Bar” (canine dog treat bar) at the Zoom Room in Encinitas. They have an exceptional assortment of high quality exotic dog treats. The stainless steel tables attractively displays large glass jars filled with tasty treats for your dog. Your canine buddy will love the unique treats such as kangaroo jerky, duck feet, fish skins, tripe twist, etc.

A real plus about the bar is being able to create your own “custom” treat bag for your dog. Rather than purchasing a bag of mass produced treats from a local pet chain and finding out that your dog won’t touch the treats, the Zoom Room allows you to create your own custom bag. The selection and quality of the products are amazing and your dog will just love them. Whether your dog is a canine professional in flyball or agility, or just the best dog in the world, you want to give him a special treat. As for a gift for your favorite canine friends, treats from the Zoom Room are a must!

The Zoom Room has the best selection and best prices in town for high quality treats such as cod skins and duck feet starting as low as .99 cents. There is always a knowledgeable and friendly staff member who is available to answer any questions about the treats, products, dog toys, and dog food. Not able to get to the store? Not a problem, the staff is able to make up your own “custom treat bag” and ship it to you.

When you go there, tell them Zoom sent you. Woof, Woof.

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

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!
