Canine Hoopers Workshop

Canine Hoopers is a relatively new low-impact sport suitable for puppies and dogs of all ages. There are no jumps in Hoopers. Instead ground level hoops are used along with tunnels and barrels. The tunnels are bigger than the ones used in agility which means that giant breed dogs will find it easier taking part in this sport.

These workshops  are suitable for dogs who have completed novice obedience with us and are looking to do another activity with their dog.

All dogs must be friendly with dogs and people.

What your dog will learn:

Course 1

  1. How to teach your dog left, right and go cues
  2. Front and rear crosses
  3. How to go through the hoops independently
  4. Introduction to the barrel
  5. Tunnel

Course 2

  1. Progressing the hoops increasing distance
  2. Progressing the barrel – encouraging independence for the dog’s approach
  3. Introduction to courses

Using clicker training and working with you and your dog teaching you how to progress your Canine Hoopers training from the introductory course.

By using luring and freeshaping this will help you to achieve the above with your dog.
