Moving Treibball Outside

I still prefer to do all of my treibballing in the house, but here is a video of mom working with me outside. I get much better distance from the ball inside. Also I am still a fan of pushing the ball and of skipping the "down" part, so mom tries to reinforce the down first.





Gotta zoom!

You look great, Ricky!

That looks like fun but it looks like the "down" takes all the fun out of the game. LOL

It looks a bit like work. You are getting good, though.

you are so good at that - but it does look funny because the ball is so much bigger then you :)

Your backyard gets some great shade!

Brilliant - great video! Our friend Mia is learning this, they have some pretty fierce competitions in this don't they? We might have to have a go at that, especially if there are treats involved ;-) Dex & Lou x

Nice job Ricky! That's a big ball!!

Ricky! You are doing great pushing that ginormous ball. Oreo was terrified the one day I put a big ball in the yard. He thought it was a monster.

It seems like a really fun game. Maybe you told us already, but where did you find the instructions on how to start teaching this? Seems like a fun activity.

Well done, Ricky!!
You always amaze me with all the tricks you do!

Look at you go! Good job Ricky! :)

Way to go, Ricky! I love how you can push it right to your mum, even when she's not straight ahead.

Looks like you're a lot further than me and Lola - she's still working the directional cues seperately, and whacking the ball :) I'm trying to make the ball-hitting as reinforcing as possible, but we haven't worked on it for a while because of our focus on crate training/impulse control training. Maybe we'll have a play with hitting the ball again tomorrow!

Woohoo! Looking good. I have to look back in your blog and see where you said you found your information about how to get started.

I can see why you like the pushing part better than the boring down part! You do really well Ricky!
