What's The Best Flyball Matting?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: May, 2021

If you have dogs and you love to work with and compete with them, may be something you do or are considering doing. Any time dogs are a part of a team and race against each other through a hurdle course to a box that releases a tennis ball - for the dog to return back to the handler - the competition is exciting for spectators and great for participating dogs. If your dog does multiple relay heats, it can be hard on their feet, joints, and muscles if appropriate flooring isn’t part of the course.

The best flyball matting will cushion impact for the dogs and offer softness and resilience to make moving through the course much more comfortable. Greatmats offers 5 great flyball matting products:
  1. Interlocking Dog Agility Mats
  2. UltimatePet Artificial Grass Turf
  3. Pet Haven Artificial Grass Turf Roll
  4. Rubber & Foam Dog Agility Flooring
  5. Economy Foam Mats

Each of these flyball matting options would look great and perform well for the dog and dog handler.
