Hoopers is a relatively new sport in the UK for our canine companions. It was started in America and provides low impact courses using a plastic frame that has a hoop for the dogs to run through. Barrels are used to provide a change in direction for the dogs. It can be used alongside agility incorporating the weaves and contact equipment. Tunnels are also used but these are shorter than those used for agility and are always kept straight.
Due to it being low impact it is ideal for puppies and older dogs.
We will be running taster sessions on the dates specified above. The 6 week courses will start the following week. Taster session £10 for 45 minutes.
We will be running classes at different levels. Initially though all classes will be set at the same level and then as we introduce the agility equipment, dogs who have already done agility who are doing hoopers will be offered the option to join a class at a different time where you will be running courses so you wont need to learn the agility equipment again.
The courses will be for 6 weeks and will cost £60 per dog. Payment is required in advance by bank transfer to guarantee your place
The courses are suitable for puppies from 6 months and dogs of all ages who have completed our novice obedience as a minimum (or other basic training elsewhere).
All puppies and dogs must be physically fit and not overweight as this can put a strain on their joints and ligaments.
The 6 week course costs £60. Payment is required in advance to guarantee your place.
To register on a course complete the booking request which is on the top right of this page. We will then send you all the details of the classes. Places are offered on a first come first served basis and will only be confirmed once payment has been received.
Proof of vaccination is required in all our classes. (Whilst we request that all puppies and dogs attending classes are fully vaccinated, it is your decision to choose whether or not to re-vaccinate annually. Should you decide not to re-vaccinate your dog annually Paws 4 Training is not liable for any illnesses your dog may contract whilst training at our training centre.)
We only use kind and gentle methods in our training classes and 1-2-1’s and do not allow the use of choke (check) chains, slip leads, slip collars or half choke (check) collars or non-pull harnesses.
