Expanded Description:

Learn about the new sport for dogs, Treibball. Jan Nijboer, whose herding dogs seemed to often thirst for more "work" to do, introduces you to a game that is a fun mixture of soccer and herding trial in which dogs are trained to at a distance to drive a set of balls into a goal. More than just a game however, Treibball involves teaching your dog a variety of complex behaviors and builds teamwork between you and your dog. This one hour DVD is not a step-by-step how-to-train instructional DVD, but rather a great introduction on how the sport of Treibball works and the importance of developing directional control skills in the dog that are necessary to compete. For more information on where competitions are being held in the US, check out the American Treibball Association online.

What reviewers are saying...

THE APDT CHRONICLE OF THE DOG
“Two years ago I began training my Aussie, Gibson, on foundation skills for Treibball and after his unexpected death, I lost interest. So, it was with excitement that I sat down to watch the Treibball for Dogs DVD by Ian Nijboer, thinking it could rekindle my desire to begin training again for this sport.
Nijboer is the originator of this fun and exciting canine sport. He originally created it for bored herding and droving dogs who needed a job (lest they find one on their own!). It’s what I call a “dog friendly” sport in that there are rules and penalties, even disqualifications, for handlers who put too much pressure on their dogs or who use harsh training methods.
The DVD package certainly caught my eye, as the cover has a lovely Border Collie in action, pushing one of the large balls used in the game. While my eyes and ears eventually adjusted to it, in the Intro section and elsewhere in the DVD, the language spoken is German and there are English subtitles on the screen when Nijboer is speaking. At times, the interviewer, Petra Alef, and Jan are speaking in German while at the same time, English is dubbed over, so the DVD viewer hears both languages at once, although the German is much softer. This was a bit challenging for my ears to adjust to. The filming of all parts of the DVD is very well done, and scenes are clear, colorful and attractive.
As with most DVDs, the Main Menu screen gives you the option to Play or go to Chapter Selection. When selecting Chapter section, you have the option to select any one of the 17 individual chapters, though I was unable to return to the Chapter section without starting the DVD from the very beginning. It didn’t take long, but I would have preferred a method to “go back” to the Chapter Selection more easily.
Throughout the various chapters, the DVD takes the viewer through early introduction to balls to watching skilled teams in action. It’s readily apparent, however, that to really begin learning from this particular DVD, one’s dog should already have solid foundation behaviors: a stay with duration, a stay with distractions, a retrieve and the ability to move away from the handler, both left, right and center. While Nijboer appears periodically in certain scenes, the training is demonstrated by various other trainers who are speaking German with overdub in English. It would have been nice to understand exactly what the trainers were saying, though I could understand what they were attempting to impart by their body language and the inflection in their voice—not at all unlike how our dogs read us. I found it an interesting exercise in watching the trainers’ body language.
Though the sport and the DVD are focused on training without force or harsh methods, one will see a few rough collar jerks by a couple of trainers. The viewer is also encouraged to only reinforce with food at the very end of a training session. Though all the trainers seemed to use a retrieve of a bumper as a reinforcer, were I training, I would have incorporated the use of a primary reinforcer (food) throughout my own training sessions versus merely reinforcing at very end of the session.
If one is a true beginner, Sandi Pennsinger’s Treibball Ball Herding Handbook may be more effective in helping one learn the foundation behaviors needed in this sport (she also has a DVD, but I haven’t seen it yet). This particular DVD gave me a solid understanding of the variety of behaviors a dog and handler need in order to participate effectively in this sport, as well as an excellent chapter on the rules of Treibball. I think avid dog hobbyists and trainers would receive the most benefit from the information contained within.
What I sincerely love about this DVD is that it reiterates what I already knew and liked about Treibball. It’s “urban herding,” requires teamwork between handler and dog and is appropriate for anyone with any breed of dog who enjoys working with and training their dog. Though, and Nijboer points out, the sport must be one your dog also enjoys. It not, he suggests finding another activity or sport your dog sincerely enjoys. I can relate well to this statement. After bringing home a new Aussie puppy and itching to being working toward the ultimate goal of therapy work with her (my activity of choice with my former Aussie), I discovered Willow is much more suited to action-oriented activities, so canine sports is the direction in which we’re now headed. I think I’ll add Treibball to our list!”

President, American Treibball Association, September 7, 2012
Reviewer: Dianna Stearns
As the inventor of Treibball, Jan Nijboer has made a great contribution to the field of dog sports. Treibball is a low-impact, low-cost, positive dog sport that any dog and owner/handler can play and learn to excel in. Treibball for Dogs is Jan's first English translated DVD on the sport, and is valuable not only for his insight into the sport, but even more for his emphasis on using Treibball as a vehicle to enhance the dog/owner bond through shared fun and improved communication.
Jan's focus on the 'dog-human' connection in Treibball is emphasized throughout each exercise shown; establishing the all-postive connection between the game activity with the balls and the dogs' attention to the handler. While some of these exercises may differ from what's being taught here in the U.S., there's much to be learned and admired in Jan's teaching. All the exercises are presented in a calm and gentle manner, with great care given to postioning the dogs and their handlers (each with differing skills and temperament) for success.
Since all dog owners and trainers can benefit by learning something new, I recommend this video as a teaching tool, to broaden your approach to the game and to add to your training toolbox. This DVD will spur you to think creatively about the game; and since Treibball is a problem-solving sport, that's a great contribution.
 
Disappointing, August 26, 2012
Reviewer: Michele Inman
For just a bit of an exposure to treibball, you might find this DVD ok. For detailed information on what the sport is and how to train for it, you won't get what you want from this DVD. I was highly disappointed. My nondoggy husband watched the whole thing wanting to see a complete run and only found bits and pieces. I didn't find this to be worth the cost of the DVD.
