Canine Hoopers 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.

Tunnels are also used but these are shorter and bigger than those used for agility and are always kept straight.

The courses comprise a TANGO mat – Touch and go. Which the dogs learn to run on. 

Canine Hoopers is ideal for puppies, older dogs and large breeds who need a low impact activity.

All dogs must be friendly with people and dogs and have a good level of obedience and able to work under distractions.

What you and your dog will learn:

  1. Basic flat work exercises to help with your Hoopers training
  2. Introduction to the hoops
  3. Introduction to the barrel
  4. Introduction to the tunnel
  5. Introduction to the TANGO mat
  6. Progression on to simple courses
  7. Distance handling
After you have completed your first 6 weeks you will be able to continue on with your training to progress your handling with your dog.
