Starter Courses

Our Ruff Diamonds 2020 Spring Starters Course will run from Saturday 15th February to 21st March, for six weeks, every Saturday morning at our regular training ground (SW15 3QF) off the A3 from 11.30am-12.30pm. Please contact us for further details. Half the places have already been signed up, so do contact us as asap if you are interested!

You and your dog (any variety!) will learn all the basics of flyball.  Your confidence, knowledge and skills will build week on week so that by the end of the course you will be in a position to take part in Starter Competitions.  We will offer you the chance to join us in at least one of these.

Be warned, there will be some homework and some physical exersion for you as well as your canine companion!

Dogs can start training at any age and will be able to compete in certain competitions (however they must be 15 months in order to take part in open tournaments).  Your dog should have a reasonable recall and be able to retrieve anything: toy, ball or socks!  If you are unsure of this or any other matters, we are happy to give you some pointers  -please don’t hesitate to contact us.

If you would like to pop down and chat with us about the course, you would be very welcome, but please call us first to make sure we are not away at a tournament or other event; alternatively send us an email to
