Course Details

Many of us already play a version of parkour with our dogs. We encourage our dogs to interact with objects when we're out and about all of the time, right? That's awesome! The focus of this course is to make sure our dogs are performing these behaviors safely so they can participate in this sport for the rest of their lives. We will focus on confidence building and giving our dogs choice when performing parkour behaviors. In this course we will be covering all of the novice parkour behaviors: 2 Feet On, 4 Feet On, Moving Obstacle, Under, Through, In, Over, Around, Balance, Wait on Obstacle, Backup, 3 Obstacle Sequence and Creativity!
