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 have two levels, beginners and advanced; the beginners workshop gives you everything you need to know to get started with the fun activity and will help you submit for your first Title. The advanced workshop will give you and your dog more challenging activities to do and keep challenging you to keep you progressing.
The beginners workshops run from 10:00 – 11:30 once a month all year long, the advanced workshops will run from 11:45 – 13:15 from May – September.
Dates: 19th Jan, 23rd Feb, 30th Mar, 5th May, 15th Jun, 13th Jul, 10th Aug, 7th Sep, 9th Nov, 7th Dec.
