  • First Waboba Dogball Championship in Portugal!

    Post by Jordan on October 11th, 2012
    The very first Waboba Dogball championship was held on Saturday in Olhão, Portugal. It was an excellent afternoon that exceeded our expectations! We had a great turn out with 15 teams of various breeds – a mixture of experienced water dogs and their owners to beginners that were afraid of water, but could not resist our Waboba Dogball.
    The great initiative, insight and organization by ACAP – Portuguese Water Dog Association and their president, Carla Peralta, the luck of having the mother of the Waboba Dogball, Anna Von Heland, and of course the brains behind the Waboba balls, Jan von Heland from Sweden, gave the whole event a touch of class and excitement!
    The judges were fantastic. They were strict with experienced dogs, but with a touch of obvious experience and the help of dog trainer Michaela, Judge Luis Ramalhete was lenient with beginners and helped owners learn how to best throw the ball and helped dogs loose their fear of water.
    ACAP handmade recycled plastic rosetas were pinned on by Jan, and Anna had the pleasure of giving out the prizes: a Waboba ball and towel to each of the  happy owners and their champions.
    Winners
     1st Team História Interminável – 30 points
    2nd TeamInseparavel – 29 points
    3rd Team Maravilha da Ria – 28 points
    Congratulations to winners and all participants! Everyone is anxious for the next one and have begun asking Carla for tips on how to train. Finally, a fun training item for dogs and their families!

  • Waboba Dogball Demo

    Post by Jordan on July 16th, 2012

    On July 15th, it was a dog day in Olhão, Portugal! We hosted a Waboba Dogball demo with various breeds trying out for the championship in October. So far, there are 4 teams and the interest is growing! LUZ, one of the contenders pictured below, loves her Waboba Dogball just as much as the others. How could they not? All dogs love Waboba balls that bounce on water. But more so now than ever, since we officially have one just for them!
