Flyball

Flyball is actually a competitive team sport for dogs. To teach the sport’s basic skills, place a small hurdle in front of your pup and call him, rewarding him if he jumps the hurdle. Add additional hurdles and throw your dog a ball. Reward him when he jumps the hurdles and returns the toy.

Run the Bases

Set up four bases like a baseball diamond and run them to show your dog how it’s done. To start, reward your pooch each time she touches a base, but save a big reward for when she runs them all and makes it home!

Basketball

That’s right, your hound can play hoops! Set up a basket then have your dog pick up a toy and drop it in to earn a treat. Start with the hoop close to the ground and slowly raise it to up the challenge.
