Dog Parkour Class
SEE YOU IN THE SPRING!!
Dog Parkour is the art of interacting with the outdoor environment through having your dog interact with obstacles by putting their feet on, going around or under them as well as balancing on the obstacle. These behaviours then progress into a sequence. These activities build confidence, body awareness and strength in your dog.
The classes will be one hour a week for 7 weeks. The classes will be held outdoors at The Dog Classroom as well as some parks around the city.
