Dog Parkour Class

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 Class

This four-session class will be held outdoors at a different location each week. Dogs will be working on leash, and a harness or flat 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.

Tricks Class

Tricks are fantastic way to develop a stronger relationship with your dog and build confidence! Training tricks is an easy way to grow your training skills and become a better teammate for your dog. Plus, who doesn’t love a fun dog trick that makes for a fabulous Instagram, or to impress friends and family!

In this class we will work on developing a tool box of reinforcers (rewards like food and toys) and reward markers, growing shaping skills for simple and more complex tricks, and developing a set of foundation behaviours that will help us grow our dogs performance.

We will also explore how these tricks can be used in activities like Rally, Canine Freestyle, Trick dog titles, and more
