Treibball Success: NC Hosts First Advanced Treibball Runs Nationwide

Nico works to bring in treibballs at competition in NC

Dogs and handlers from across the state came together at Teamworks Dog Training in Youngsville, NC late last month for the second sanctioned American Treibball Competition held in North Carolina.

Held September 20th and 21st, this was the 2nd competition held in the state this year and the first competition nationwide to host dogs competing for their advanced title. I’m pretty sure I speak for everyone who attended when I say the weekend was a blast.

Judges included our own Suzanne Kalafian, Debbie Hanley, and Bobby Chastain, as well as Karen Mielke from Dog Logic Training in Statesville, NC. A big thank you to both the judges and to all the volunteers who helped out!

Superior Dog Training had a strong team presence—and a number of Superior dogs brought home new titles and ribbons! The next competition is already in the works, with plans to hold it at Dog Logic in Statesville in January, 2014. We’ll share specific dates as soon as they’re available.

Upcoming Treibball Demos

In the meantime, Superior Dog Training will be participating in several Treibball demos, if you’d like to come out to see how it’s done or even just to support the team.

We’ll be appearing at the 2013 Rural Hill Sheepdog Trials and Dog Festival, held November 9-10 in Huntersville, NC. We will also be doing a demo a bit closer to home at Santa Paws in Durham on Friday, December 13th at the Durham Armory.
