Lets Play Ball! Treibball 2 Day event!
Treibball is a sport where your dog is taught to follow commands to maneuver a large exercise ball (or smaller balls for the littler dogs) across a course and into a goal. Sound like fun? YOUR DOG WILL THINK IT'S THE BEST!!! Any dog can learn to do it and it's a great way to keep an energetic dog exercised in winter, for older dogs that are no longer able to do agility and still want to work, or just for fun.
In the first two hour workshop we will work on the basic skills needed for the game, such as teaching directionals, how to move the ball around, targeting, etc. In the second two hour workshop we will advance these skills to a new level. Each dog will progress at their own speed using positive reinforcement to keep it enjoyable.
