Also called the “urban herding sport”, Treibball mimics herding techniques using exercise balls instead of real sheep. Come and learn how to play Treibball with your dog! Treibball is an R+ team sport, that builds communication skills between the dog and handler, and improves attention and off-leash reliability. Dogs of any size can compete and handlers of any capability can participate, which makes it a fun, skill-building activity. Learn more about this sport at www.americantreibballassociation.org.
We’ll start with Treibball Beginners, then go to Treibball Intermediate and Advanced. Each class will be 6 weeks long, one hour per week, with 6 dogs maximum. Students can repeat each level to get more fluent on the exercises as often as they want/ need.
In between classes we’ll schedule weekly practices where possible, at different levels. For those practices, you can pay single $25 or purchase our training punch card: $120 for 5+1 visits.
Your dog should love to play chase games, be good off-leash and know some basic cues. A drag leash can be attached for extra control.
The fee is $140 for the 6-week class.
After the classes, you can join a practicing group of Advanced Treibball when/if available throughout the year. For those practices, you can pay single $25 or purchase our training punch card: $120 for 5+1 visits.
