Lee Heighton Spring Loaded, Michigan I was introduced to Flyball in 1998 when I met my wife, Angie, at a Flyball practice. We run on the Spring Loaded Flyball team based in Michigan that currently holds the world records in the Regular and Multibreed classes. When I'm not playing Flyball I work as a police canine handler for the Port Huron police department and have been handling and training police dogs for 11 years. Watching a dog improve through the use of good training techniques is one of the most rewarding parts of our sport.
