Saturday, July 14: Intro to Treibball
Treibball, which looks like a combination between soccer, herding, and billiards, is a great dog sport from Europe that is just starting to take off in the U.S. The dog learns to follow directions from the handler to pick the correct exercise ball and push it in the right direction. Although it was originally branded as "urban herding," Treibball does not require any herding instinct, and can be done by any breed, large or small.
Treibball teaches discipline, focus, teamwork, and communication. It is a great confidence builder for shy dogs and helps reactive dogs with impulse control.
Sunday, July 15, 2018 – Nose Work Games

The games in this seminar will cover some of these topics:
