GET THE BALL ROLLING TREIBBALL BASICS

 

This Spring Term I thought it would be good to go back and try a few Treibball basics. Most of us can get the dogs to push a ball, go left and right and go out to a mat. The problem comes when adding the ball and distance to get control over which ball the dog pushes first. Here are our first two weeks of training.


Stage 1
The first video demonstrates getting the dogs to line up and watch their owners. We started with owners standing in the middle of four mats and the handler standing in the middle.



Most of the handlers found this fairly easy as the dogs all understand going to the mat and following directions to go right and left.


Stage 2
So in this video we were trying to add more distance so we had 4 mats again but this time the handler and dog had to be on opposite mats. This got a lot harder as we tried to increase the distance between handler and dog.



We have started stage 3 which is introducing the ball and adding distance this video will be following shortly.This is a lot harder to maintain control because the dogs just love to push the ball!!!
