Can your dog bend it like Beckham?
Treibball is a great activity to play with your dog and you can give it a go at this years dog festival thanks to Tynewater K9. A relatively new sport, Treibball is great mental stimulation for dogs and it's particularly helpful for channelling the herding breeds, dogs with a strong prey drive and for any dog who likes to chase.
Treibball is great activity to play with your dog. The game consists of “herding” a number of large inflatable exercise balls into a soccer-like net. It’s also a competitive sport for dogs of all ages and sizes. It promotes better teamwork and communication between a dog and their handler. It’s great fun for any energetic dogs who work well off-leash and need a job. Don’t worry though - it won’t be quite so hard at the festival. You will be able to learn the skills you need to teach your dog - then we’ll get the stop watch out.
Visit the Tynewater K9 Activity ring to have-a-go and see if your dog has some footie skills fit for the premier league - rosettes and prizes for fastest goals!
