Weekly Update from Dogwise: Treibball DVD Featuring Jan Nijboer

Dear Dogwise Customer,

We are very pleased to announce the release of Jan Nijboer's Treibball for Dogs DVD here in America, in English. If you have never heard of Treibball, it is a relatively new sport for dogs created by Jan Nijboer in Germany a few years ago. As Jan explains it, he was looking for a creative way to keep energetic herding and other "out of work" dogs busy and found it after watching some Boxers playing soccer on TV. Why not use exercise balls (instead of sheep!) and have dogs "herd" them into a goal using many of the distance control techniques used in herding? Sounds a bit strange, but in fact this new and evolving sport has proven very popular as trainers have come to realize that not only is it challenging and fun, but it is a great way to build teamwork between owner and dog as well as gaining the benefits of being able to control your dog at a distance. This one hour DVD will give you a great introduction to how the sport of Treibball works and one method of training to learn the skills necessary to compete. Interested in even more information? Check out the American Treibball Association website to see how the sport is progressing in the United States, rules for competitions and training advice.

While we do not generally discuss upcoming publishing projects, for those of you who are (or will become) Treibball fans, Dogwise Publishing is working on a training book for Treibball with a leading authority. We are not yet ready to announce a release date, but we know that many of you are waiting impatiently for a book that uses a combination of clicker and target training for Treibball. Hang on, it will be here pretty soon!

One of the challenges of Treibball is that it requires you to be able to control your dog's movements at a distance with verbal cues, hand signals or non-verbal sounds. You need to be able to move your dog to the left, the right, back up and lie down in many instances several yards away from where you are positioned. Sounds like a Herding trial, right? Well one way to get ahead of the game is to check out our Herding book selection, many of which teach you how to teach these skills. It's hard to pick a best one, but our best seller over the years is Herding Dogs - Progressive Training by Vergil Holland, our Book of the Week through July 4th. This book is getting harder to find now, but we still have a decent amount on hand - it's yours for 25% off, only $16.46 for the next week.

  • All I Know About Management I Learned From My Dog by Martin P. Levin. What a 91-year-old management guru learned about management from an unlikely source—his dog.

It didn’t take long for him to learn that he was wrong.

Thanks from all us at Dogwise.
