Treibball is a competitive dog sport that is quickly growing in popularity.  Originating in Germany, it is thought that Treibball for dogs, who require mental and physical stimulation but did not have access to sheep, was developed to be a substitute sport for herding dogs.The game is played with eight balls of approximately 45–75 cm set in a triangle formation like racked billiard balls with the point ball farthest from the goal. The object of the game is to get all eight balls into a confined space the size of a soccer goal (regular soccer goal or similar pen) within a set period, usually about 15 minutes.

Sandra and Daisy live in Raleigh NC.  They have been competing and having a lot of fun in Treibball for four years.
