Potters Bar’s own Flyball team hosted a popular event over the weekend.
Hotshots Flyball Team hosted races which saw a number of teams go head to head in the competitive UK Flyball league fixtures.
Flyball is a relatively new sport in which teams of dogs race against each other, leaping over hurdles to retrieve a tennis ball and running back to their handlers with the ball.
The Hotshots Flyball team was formed over a decade ago and currently has 16 members. Team captain Leigh Heaps said: "The event went very well! Due to the extremely hot weather we had to finish at lunchtime on Saturday for the safety of the dogs and humans, but had a full busy day on Sunday.
"It is very much a team sport and our club runs as a team with everyone pitching in and making decisions on the club's progress together."
Both teams, Hotshots and Hotshots Hawks came 3rd in their divisions over the weekend.
