Treibball is the cool canine sport of urban herding for energetic dogs. A combination of herding, agility and soccer-like skills are combined to make this a fun game for any breed. Treibball is for all sizes, types and breeds of dogs who like to play and need a fun job. Senior dogs who are retired from more rigorous sports and shy dogs who need confidence building will benefit from learning Treibball skills.
In this video you will learn how to train your dog to push large inflatable exercise balls into a goal from a distance. Intermediate skills include increasing distance, keep going signals, adding more balls, maintaining impulse control, teaching directional cues and orientation to the handler on the move.
