Would you like to learn a fun way to increase your dog’s confidence, focus, and fitness while strengthening your relationship at the same time?
Canine parkour, which is loosely considered to be a form of dog agility, is a somewhat new dog sport. In parkour, you teach your dog to perform “interactions” with objects in the environment such as jumping over, going under, going between, walking across, going around, backing between or onto, or sending around.
Canine parkour builds confidence and fosters teamwork by giving you and your dog an opportunity to explore and meet new challenges together as you perform the interactions with different objects in different locations. It also builds physical strength and flexibility while improving overall physical conditioning. And, parkour complements agility as Kristine discusses in this article reprinted from Clean Run magazine.
Best of all, canine parkour is an appropriate activity for dog and handler teams of all ages. Young dogs in training, fit dogs in their prime, older dogs with limited mobility, and dogs of every age and circumstance can enjoy their own unique adventure.
In this 6-week online course, Kristine Hammar will provide an in-depth introduction to canine parkour, and teach the skills that you and your dog need to get started. She will also teach you how to create submissions for parkour titles. By the end of the class, students who wish to create entries for parkour titles will have at least one entry ready to submit to the titling organization of their choice.
