Title Recognition Program


You can literally feel the anticipation in the air as the dogs line up and wait for a Flyball relay race to begin. As soon as the gun fires, each dog dashes over a line of low hurdles to reach a box. Once there, they use their paws to push a spring-loaded pad and release a tennis ball into the air that they catch and bring back to their handlers. Once back to the starting line, the next dog takes his turn.

In partnership with the North American Flyball Association (NAFA), AKC recognizes four titles: Flyball Dog Champion (FDCH), Flyball Master (FM), ONYX and Flyball Grand Champion (FGDCH). Owners can request these titles be recognized on their dog’s AKC record by completing a simply Title Application.
