The OKPaws K9 Sports Club was organized in 1991 and was formed under the rules of the United Kennel Club [UKC]. It is a volunteer Club dedicated to the sport of Agility, Flyball, Disc Dog, and Rally Obedience. We also have members that belong to many other different dog clubs around Oklahoma City, such as freestyle (dance), schutzhund, and obedience.
For information on the club, classes, and what we have going on right now, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Flyball races consist of two teams of four dogs each, relay racing side-by-side over a 51 foot long course. Each dog must run down 4 jumps, trigger a flyball box releasing a tennis ball which the dog must return to the handler, running back over the 4 jumps. The next dog is released as the previous dog has returned over all 4 jumps. Teams compete in up to nine different divisions based on their seed times, so any breed of dog is welcome and able to race against other teams with similar abilities and be competitive.
We have one team that is part of OKPaws, "Full Speed Ahead". The team participates under United Flyball League International (U-Fli) rules in tournaments that are held across the country. Most of our tournaments are held in Oklahoma or Texas, but the team has been known to travel to Las Vegas, St. Louis, Nebraska, and Memphis.
The team has practices most every weekend to train dogs in flyball. No experience is required! Practice is normally indoors at the New Leash Companion Animal Center on Sunday mornings starting at 9:00 a.m. Always check the calendar to see where and when we will be. The team has a google Group, so it would be a good idea to join the email list if you are interested in checking it out.
Oklahoma weather is never predictable, so cancellations are usually at the last minute. Please check your e-mail before you head out to practice.
Whether you’re interested in joining us or just want to watch and see if it will be something you might be interested in, you're welcome to come on out and play.
