I have always been a fan of German Shepherd Dogs (GSD), but after playing with my neighbors dog I found out why Germans are good at soccer:) This is meant to be a humorous post, but also will help your quick feet dribbling skills.
Even their dogs play tough defense!
The dog in this video below is actually my next door neighbors, who is a trained service dog.
Sadly this was one of his last weeks or months of life as he got really sick somehow.
The dogs name was Gabriel and he was a good boy!
My wife and I also own a German shepherd because we like that kind of breed. Plus we thought it would be cool for them to both have a playmate.
In addition, we have 2 daughters, so needed extra protection around the house:)
Check out Gabriel’s aggressive defense.
Get quick feet dribbling skills
If you own a dog who likes to play chase take advantage.
Get a ball that you don’t mind getting torn up and use it as both a dog toy and ball you can dribble with.
Simply have fun and try to keep the ball away from him or her.
You will develop quick feet and better dribbling skills all while giving your pet exercise.
My own GS rescue: Bayern
One day I was walking my new German Shepherd ‘Bayern’ when a neighbor asked to pet him.
The neighbor asked his name and when I told her ‘Bayern’ she asked what that means…
I told her he is named after a German soccer club ‘Bayern Munich’ and that Bayern is a State in Germany like Texas is in America.
She asked, “Are you German then?”
I replied, “No, but my dog is.” 🙂
We’ve since lost Bayern, but before he died we had added a second GSD rescue, Ayah. She’s fun to play with and try to dribble around, but prefers chasing tennis balls and sticks.
