Concept: Treibball Workshops will introduce you to a great new dog sport.
Treibball was developed in Europe as a recreational activity for dogs. It involves herding large gym balls into a soccer-like goal. It is particularly good for all those under-stimulated working breeds in the city, but it is suitable for any breed of dog. The class is skills-based, and taught by means of positive reinforcement. It uses the method of targeting to teach the dogs to push the balls. It’s a lot of fun, and it provides an outlet for all those working dogs who don’t understand why they shouldn’t be rounding up joggers in the park. Experts agree that handlers should be taught a good foundation in the relevant training methods, and that the dogs should learn self-control before being allowed to herd the balls. Initially we are teaching the skills for fun. Our program has four levels to challenge you and your dog, so sending the
dog, directing the dog from a distance and directional
control are some of the more advanced skills.
Wagging School is leading Victoria in teaching the new dog sport and recreational activity of Treibball. Kaye’s Course is systematic, taking you through new skills, step-by-step. It is based on research into the best practice by the top US trainers.
