HOOPERS 

 

BEGINNERS

£92.00 for the 4 week course

It takes a lot of basics from Agility but removes the need for jumps or contact equipment and replaces them with a smooth course of hoops, tunnels and barrels for the dog to run through so there is minimum impact on your dog’s limbs. This makes it ideal for any type of dog to take part in, from puppies through to older dogs and dogs returning from injury. It focuses on learning distance control and directional commands, hoops, tunnels and send arounds.

COURSE PRACTISE
