Kaos Dogsports celebrated its 10th Anniversary Flyball Tournament at the Tartan Curling Club this weekend.

A total of 35 teams from across Western Canada competed in the Tournament.

Michelle Reimer, the Tournament Secretary, says obedience is the key to winning the sport.

“These dogs are all running off-leash. They have to know to come back when they are called,” said Reimer.

Flyball involves match races between two teams of four dogs each, racing side by side over a 51 foot long course.
