TREIBBALL is a fun and positive - reinforcement dog sport. Teaching herding using exercise balls and a goal, teaching the handler on how to shape and capture. Teaching your pup basic skills focus – sit-stay – wait – target – turn – out –around – push. This fun game is for all ages, sizes, breed of dogs. Your pup must be able to focus on you and will learn to be reliable off-leash.
Eight balls of approximately 45–75 cm are set in a triangle formation, similar to billiards, with the point ball farthest from the goal. The object of the game is to get all eight balls into a confined space the size of a soccer goal within a set time period, usually about 15 minutes. The handler may not move outside of an area that contains the left half of and several feet beyond the goal area. The dog works in close cooperation with the handler, who is only allowed to use whistles, verbal or hand signals to direct his dog. No verbal or physical corrections are used in Treibball. The dog and handler must communicate effectively to herd one ball at a time into the goal, in fifteen minutes' time. The dog and handler team are scored on cooperation and direction, within that fifteen-minute time limit, and can earn extra points or accrue demerits accordingly.
