Treibball - 'Push Ball'
A fun and creative sport to play with
your dog! This new sport is best described as a a game of soccer with
training concepts around herding. The goal is to have your dog push
(herd) large balls into a net. It's urban herding.See the KissAble Canine trainers on The Pet Show with Dr Katy discussing and demonstrating Treibball here.
We've also written an article on Treibball for NoVADog Magazine and you can read it here.
These classes are for the dog that already has a foundation of obedience cues such as sit, down, stay and come.
