Beginning training for treibball with “Flash” the whippet-it’s all about distance and direction!

My youngest dog, Flash, is a 2 yr old race bred whippet. Among other things, I am just beginning his treibball training. Since he is so very prey driven and easily distracted by all moving things, my plan is to lay a solid foundation of distance control before he ever pushes a ball. Here is some video of a beginning training session after introducing him to one barrel, then 2, then 3. I also added in the hoops after familiarizing him with those separately. Introducing various targets (obstacles) with direction and distance builds confidence and the variety adds more fun! He is starting to get the hang of it and I can start adding in more distance any time now.
