What on earth is Dog Parkour?
Well, as we were the first place in the UK to be offering training courses and attaining international titles in Dog Parkour then it’s not surprising that you might not have heard of it! Take a look at this article about the dog parkour we did on BBC2’s Me and My Dog to learn more.
From the website of the International Dog Parkour Association:
Parkour is a physical discipline in which individuals move through their environment and conquer obstacles in their path. It includes climbing, balancing, jumping, running, vaulting, creativity and working past fear. So what is dog parkour? Dog parkour, sometimes known as urban agility, is an activity based on the same principles. It is a challenging, but fun, physical activity in which the dogs learn to interact with their environment. Just like in the human version, in dog parkour we work on ways to conquer obstacles, such as climbing, balancing, and jumping. Dog Parkour is a non competitive event, but it is a titling event.
We offer weekly classes during the summer months when the evenings are light enough to enjoy being outside, and these longer workshops at weekends.
