NOVICE PARKOUR

Parkour is all about moving through the environment in a creative, challenging way. The sport, nicknamed "urban agility" uses naturally occuring obstacles to keep you and your dog mentally and physically conditioned. Elements may include jumping, climbing, running, balancing and vaulting.   It's great for all ages and types of dogs, as the level of difficulty can vary to best suit your team.This is a non-competitive but titling sport. There are even specialty titles available for puppies (or others) that do not involve jumping or physical stress. Safety is always a priority.

 

This class covers all skills needed for the Novice or Training Level titles, as well as the new Quarantine  test. Parkour is a great way to add some fun and adventure to your regular walk.

 

* All dogs must be friendly with dogs/people

* Please bring: 6' - 8' leash, Harness, lots of small soft treats and a Clicker (clicker is optional)

* There are no refunds or transfers for this class.
