Treibball

What is Treibball?

Also known as Ball Herding or Drive Ball, this is the newest dog sport to hit North America. Started in Europe around 2007, in this sport the dog must herd eight large fitness balls across the field and into a soccer net within 15 minutes. The dog uses his nose or shoulder to push the ball. No biting allowed! Your challenge is to direct your dog to each ball while you remain in place near the goal. This means your dog must respond to cues to move left, right, back, forward and stop.

Urban dogs, suburban dogs, retired agility dogs and their handlers all find ball herding a great alternative … no jumping for the dog, no running for the handler! You can find videos on YouTube and at the American Treibball Association website www.americantreibballassociation.org.
