Default Treibball?

Anybody done it? I think Sadie would be good at it as she loves herding balls and prefers big over little.
They offer training at a place where they also do herding and agility training which she would also be good at but I'm not sure I could handle it.

I haven't done it, but I was told about it sometime last year when looking for sports to do with Miyavi.

I'd say try out the training class and see if you can handle it. Sounds like it would be the perfect thing for your dog though.

It would be great for all herding breeds!

I've watched some video's on it, and it does look like fun! I'm not so sure I'd be able to do it, but it does look like fun for any herding dog.

MrJohn, of course it is. Isn't that the way it works? Have you watched any videos on it?

We started the basics, which is getting the dog to push at a large and a small ball. Just one little push. He hasn't gone farther than that yet, but I want him to get the basics first. I'm really guilty of plunging headfirst into something without mastering the basics first.

Well I'm relieved to sat that there is one basic Sadie won't have trouble with as you can see here Getting her to put it where I want it might be a bit more challenging...lol
I'm interested in how you do with it. Are you getting outside training or doing it yourself?
