6 weeks (no class 5/27/19)
Urban Agility or Dog Parkour is a newer K9 sport that is on the rise. This class is perfect for people that love to get out and explore with their dog.
Parkour is a physical discipline in which individuals move through their environment and conquer obstacles in their path. It includes climbing, balancing, jumping, running, vaulting, creativity and working past fear. So what is dog parkour? Dog parkour, sometimes known as urban agility, is an activity based on the same principles. It is a challenging, but fun, physical activity in which the dogs learn to interact with their environment. Just like in the human version, in dog parkour we work on ways to conquer obstacles, such as climbing, balancing, and jumping. Dog Parkour is a non competitive event, but it is a titling event. (Reference International Dog Parkour)
6 week course will be a hybrid of indoor and outdoor classes. Weeks 1 and 2 will be at our facility in Livonia and the following 4 weeks will be outdoors at local parks or downtown areas (within a 5 mile radius of our facility).
*** Dogs must be able to work in around other dogs and humans and be focused in public. If you are unsure if your dog is appropriate for this class just give us a call.
Equipment- Dogs must be wearing a harness with a back clip, 6 ft leash and another equipment appropriate for outdoor activities. Humans should be dressed appropriately for outdoor activity, enclosed shoes (no open toed, sandals or flip flops). You will also want to bring a motivator for your dog, toy or treats.
