Dog Parkour (Urban Agility)

GROUP CLASSES NOW AVAILABLE! 

Would you like to try out a new dog activity?  If so, why not join us for our new 5 week Parkour for beginners course.

The first 3 sessions will take place in Holt Heath, at the secure paddock, and the final two will be out and about. It will be £75 for the 5 sessions and you will be added to the Facebook group too. After this you can attend any of the individual Parkour orientated meet ups that I hold.

Dates are:

Thursday 6th, 13th and 20th June at the paddock

Thursday 27th June and 4th July out and about (we will decide between us)

Dogs need to be reasonably happy around other dogs but there should be a certain amount of ability to work with dogs that just need a little space (don't like other dogs in their face) providing that you can manage comfortably when we go out and about. It is not suitable for dogs who are reactive.

Like Agility - only better, well we think so!

Dog Parkour is a fun and accessible dog sport, for dogs and owners, regardless of circumstance.  We love that it helps with confidence issues and helps dogs work through and overcome fears, using obstacles in the owners everyday environment.  It is only limited by your imagination.

Combining elements of human parkour and dog agility, dogs are introduced to jumping, climbing, balancing over, crawling under, and going around different objects.  Unlike agility, where there is a lot of speed, the dogs are encouraged to think each behaviour through, have the choice to refuse an obstacle if they don’t feel confident or safe to do it, and the only team that you are competing against is yourselves.

Dog Parkour pathways can be very much tailored to your dogs abilities and age,  and is a low impact but challenging activity for any canine athlete.
