• Prerequisite: Dogs must have completed a Beginner Class at J9’s K9s or be pre-approved by Janine, and be able to rest comfortably (and reasonably quietly) in a crate while other teams are taking their turns working in the classroom. Handlers can bring up to two dogs if each dog will be comfortable resting in a crate while the handler is working their other dog. Advanced obedience skills and prior experience are not needed, but your dog(s) will need to be able to focus on you (and your treats!) while off leash in the classroom. Please call us at 818-832-9906 if you need pre-approval or are unsure about your dog’s eligibility.

Treibball, also called “Urban Herding,” is a super-fun dog sport that’s a combination of herding, obedience and soccer. It originated in Germany and was designed to promote teamwork and communication between dogs and their handlers, while providing mental and physical stimulation to canines living in urban areas. The objective is for the handler to direct his dog to bring appropriately sized balls placed in a field back to his handler or other goal in a specific order. Any dog can enjoy Treibball, regardless of breed, age or size!

  • Note: Not appropriate for dogs who extremely fearful or aggressive to people. Call us at 818-832-9906 if you are unsure about your dog’s eligibility.
