Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. Consequently, the handler's controls are limited to voice, movement, and various body signals, requiring exceptional training of the animal and coordination of the handler.
Prerequisites: Obility Training or Agility Assessment with Trainer
Treibball (pronounced Tribe-ball) originated in Germany over 10 years ago, and means “push ball”. Treibball is a low-cost, low-impact sport, any dog and handler can learn. If your dog has a nose or a shoulder, he can play Treibball! The game is simple to play and train and only requires a few fitness balls, some treats and a love of working with your dog. Your dog learns to target the balls, and then goes out into a playing field and pushes balls to you, with direction and control. The game is timed, with only one dog and handler team on the field, so mildly reactive dogs can participate too.
You can feel the anticipation in the air as the dogs line up and wait for a Flyball relay race to begin. As soon as the signal sounds, each dog dashes over a line of low hurdles to reach a box. Once there, they use their paws to push a spring-loaded pad and release a tennis ball into the air that they catch and bring back to their handlers. Once back to the starting line, the next dog takes his turn.
