Introduction to Parkour:
As described by the International Dog Parkour Association (www.dogparkour.org) Dog Parkour is thought of as urban agility. It is a fun activity that teaches dog to safely and confidently engage with obstacles in the environment. Dogs are taught how to climb, balance, jump among other activities. I would add that Dog Parkour can double as a fantastic and quick way to engage your dog mentally and physically. This class is ideal for dogs that need a “job,” energetic dogs (that are driving their people craa-zy!) as well as dogs that need to learn to enjoy novel things.
In this introductory course we will work on having dogs climb, balance, step backwards and go around.
