Seminars and Workshops
Occasionally we will run educational seminars and hands-on workshops on training or other pet-related subjects. Please see the Workshops page for the full list.
The Dog Classroom also offers Workplace Seminars for those who work in professions where they may come into contact with dogs (delivery service, meter readers, etc.).
Dog Parkour Workshop
About Dog Parkour:
Dog Parkour, sometimes called Urban Agility, is an up-and-coming dog sport. Dog Parkour is non competitive, although you can earn titles, and is a great way to get out and have fun with your dog. It combines elements of human parkour and dog agility to create a fun, accessible activity for dogs and their owners.
Parkour is a great way to explore the outdoors, conquer new obstacles while increasing your dog's strength, fitness and body awareness. It is an excellent way to use positive training methods to build your dog's confidence or challenge them to problem solve on the go in a variety of locations and environments.
About the Workshop:
This two-day introductory workshop will be held outdoors (location TBA). Dogs will be working on leash and a harness or flat buckle collar is required. We will work on Parkour skill building including body awareness; maintaining a stay in a sit, stand, or down in a distracting environment; placing two paws on an obstacle; balance; crawling; jumping; sending around; and going through. The second half of each class will include an on leash walk, identifying parkour obstacles in the environment and practicing executing parkour behaviours safely.
