    Default Treibball - what do people think of this sport?

    Here is a link to Treibbal, a dog sport i had not heard of before yesterday.
    How to Teach The Basics of 'Treibball' or 'Push Ball': A Great New Game for Energetic Dogs! - YouTube

    I started training both my dogs yesterday on this. Have them touching the ball on command currently, next bit is to shape the touch lower on the ball.

    Im very excited, as this looks like bernie's idea of haven. He's never had a go with sheep. So im hoping he wont notice the difference lol

    Looks like an awesome idea. But I found lots of videos on how to teach it, demos, workshops, training, but couldn't find one where they showed the actual game?

    dont you just love how they have a manage to train the dog in lol How the other half lives eh?

    Not sure how far i'll get with my 2. But they are having fun trying. And im excited at having found the perfect animal to for bernie to round up! no poo, no feed costs, no fox risks. Sorted! Perhaps he'll leave my dining chairs alone now? He does tend to tuck them all neatly under the table, nice n tightly lol

    Haha! Banjo only pulls mine from under the table. So she can use them as a step to climb on the table to steal food.

    One day at our dog training class, the instructor told us all about Treibball, she is quite interested in getting it started in Western Australia if she can get enough people interested. She'd brought a few fit-balls to training and we all had a turn of just letting the dogs play with the ball and see if they could move it around.

    Ruby being the ball crazy girl that she is was beside herself, we didn't get to have our turn for a while as I had to walk her around the perimeter of the field to try and calm her down. Out of about 10 dogs there, some either weren't interested, or the fit-ball was too big and scared them, one dog got so excited he managed to bite and burst the ball.

    When it was our turn to have 5 minutes with the ball, Ruby "got it" straight away, she was hilarious - I was just hanging on to her leash, sprinting - almost low flying behind her, as she ran around this field (it's about quarter of an acre in size) she soccered the ball with her nose, her giraffe long legs were pushing it along, she was moving faster and faster and I could see in her eyes, she'd never had so much fun in her life!!

    I'd forgotten about it - going to have a look at these you tube clips now
