Not sure if you know about it, there's a Treibball group on Yahoo.

The bestball may work, it can't be popped, but is hard on the teeth if the dog tries to chew it. It is only 10", but can be used to teach the dog the game. Karlo has one and loves it, he herds it but not towards a 'goal'

OK I ordered a Equine Jolly Mega ball from valley Vet. I think I'm going to order another two balls from School Discount. Thanks kiya and Whitesheperd. I'll see what Daisy thinks in about 7 to 10 days.

Our Equine Jolly Mega ball from Valley Vet came in. Nice quality, looks like it's going to be pretty rugged. A lot thicker material than the exercise balls I had.
We got the cover too so I know that will make a difference. I didn't blow the ball up all the way (almost though) so the cover is a little loose but it gives something for Annie to grab onto so she can shake it. (she loves it)

OK got the dogs out to try trieball. Daisy was more interested in eating grass, walking her fence line and meeting the husbands friend who came to look at the mower. Lucky was interested and actually herded a little(three feet)I started pushing it and he would run next to it kind of pushng w/ shoulder but then out came his teeth and paw. As I said no he swiped and the ball is now flat. He probably nailed it w/ his teeth to. Now I see the point of the mega ball cover. Will get one and another ball.Need to work w/ Daisy alone ,which will make Lucky howl and cry of course.I think we will try touch again with her tommorrow w/ Luck outside. See if I can get her interested.Wish me luck.

Cool, post some pictures. I broke it to my husband last night that I want to get one. I just have to wait till he gets over the order of dog stuff I just got (deer antlers, tug toy, flea stuff) and now I want to get them a big ball....I can hear him already.

For Treibball, you should teach them the "touch" command with your hand to get them used to touching things with only their nose. Then you can migrate it to the ball so they learn that they can touch things without the use of their teeth. This specific funtion is called "targeting".
I am an obedience instructor and teach the "targeting" technique to teach a dog to Heel. Also, I teach my students to "bowl" with their dogs using plastic pins and balls. The dog learns to roll the ball across the floor, into the pins. It's a lot of fun and very similar to the training techniques for Treibball.

I hope this helps!
