An Exciting Canine Spball herding aussieort From Germany!


A new way to herd—no sheep required. This exciting ball herding sport (also called “Treibball”) builds on a dog’s herding instinct, shaping his behavior one step at a time, until he can round up a whole “herd” of balls. An awesome sport for the herding breeds or any dog needing a fun job!


Ball Herding Classes

Intro To Ball Herding


Instructor: Debb Kirschner

This first level class presents the basics in a fun and exciting seven-week class. Games shape the basic skills for the Ball Herding sport: basic herding cues, pushing objects, orienting to the handler, and learning to move around the ball. HERD those balls with confidence and control!

Ball Herding - Let's Herd!

Ball Herding:  Let's Herd!

Instructor: Debb Kirschner

With the basics in place, you and your dog will now work with the HERD one ball at a time, while distance increases along with the width of the field and the number of balls. The game starts shaping into the sport of ball herding, while everyone has fun along the way. Each team advances at its own pace with support and coaching to keep the teams motivated. It's exciting to see how quickly the dogs improve as they keep playing the game. We add other creative challenges with the balls, keeping the dogs challenged and motivated.

Jump Start Program


Open to any Team who prefers individual instruction in Agility, Ball Herding, Nosework, and Rally Obedience. In lieu of seven weeks of regular group classes, this option offers great flexibilty with scheduling, progressing, or other special needs for either dog or handler. In four one-hour blocks of individual instruction, teams can progress as quickly or quicker than group classes. Depending on the evaluation at the end of the four meetings, most teams are prepared to enter group classes or you may choose to continue in the Jump Start Program. You get the opportunity to evaluate and observe what serves your TEAM best in going forward!
