Dog sport craze arrives in Cardiff

Cardiff Canine Citizens have introduced classes in the latest craze of dog sport, treibballing, which has been well received by dog owners.

Treibballing is a low impact combination of herding and football techniques and is suitable for both young and old dogs. Treibballing keeps the dog fit and healthy as well as strengthening the bond between dog and owner, as they work together to score goals in the quickest time possible.

Caroline Cowan, 44, is the founder of Cardiff Canine Citizens which has been running for 15 years.

“I have already had lots of interest in the classes, which will officially start after Christmas,” said Caroline, “I think it is really important for dogs to be given appropriate exercise and mental stimulation for their well-being.”
