Redding/Cottonwood, CA area dog sport of Treibball.
Treibball Foundations 1; The art of Ball Herding for your dog!

No matter if your dog is a frustrated herding dog with no sheep herd of his own or a bored house pet, ball herding is an exciting new sport from Germany that YOUR dog can do!

The game consists of the dog using her nose or shoulders to drive exercise balls into a goal in a limited time. Treibball uses a fun combination of obedience and herding and it takes thinking, communication and coordination of the dog human team to get the driving done and all those balls (sheep!) in the goal.

To get a glimpse of what it is all about check out these great videos!
