Dogs competing in flyball tournament in Westminster

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Some of the best dogs in the state are running, jumping and flying in the Mile High Velocity flyball tournament in Westminster on Sunday morning.

Each team has four to six dogs and each of the dogs has to complete the course. The team that completes it the fastest wins. There are also individual points that dogs can receive for fast times.

The competition draws teams from neighboring states.

Jen Giacchi owns Matrix Dog, a facility that hosts the tournaments. Her dog competes on a team as well. She said it's a great outlet for high-energy dogs.

"A lot of these dogs need a job, they want something to do. They get really excited to come out here and play. It will be really loud once the tournament starts because the dogs are so happy," said Giacchi.
