Introduction to Hoopers

Hooper’s is a fun dog sport that is ideal for dogs and owners of all ages and fitness levels. Hoopers is a relatively new (and fun!) type of dog sport that has grown in popularity over the last few years.

Ideal for dogs and owners of all ages and fitness levels, the flowing courses see dogs navigating a series of hoops, barrels and tunnels. It has a similar pace and excitement as the agility category but without the jumps and tight turns– making it accessible for everyone!

Aims:
- To promote good dog behavior and responsible dog ownership.
- To have a good knowledge of the aspects of Hoopers as a low impact, fun sport for dogs.
- To encourage consistency throughout the training in a friendly and respectful manner.

All training must be done using modern force-free techniques.

What you will learn

On this course you will learn about the equipment, and how to train your dog to navigate the equipment.

All training is positive, and the emphasis is on fun. The course will be part theory, and part practical.

You will be given guidance and handouts on verbal cues, and how to make pieces of equipment at home.

There will be a classroom session where you will be given information about rules, regulations and the history of the sport.
