On Saturday the club had the pleasure of welcoming Faye from Phase Purple Agility Training for our first ever beginners Hoopers workshop.
What is Hoopers?
Hoopers is a relatively new dog sport, which utilises a series of ground-level obstacles called Hoops. Instead of physical dexterity, the challenge of Hoopers is entirely focused on the ability of the handler and the dog to work together as a smooth flowing team.
Hoopers is ideal for dogs that are too young or too old for agility or are unable to do impact sports. Suitable for dogs of all ages, breeds and for puppies and dogs that are restricted to low impact activity.
It was absolutely fantastic to see dogs that were no longer able to do high impact sports such as flyball and agility keep their brains and bodies working. Equally it was a great distance builder for those in activities such as agility, or for those with young dogs looking to learn a new skill. We can't wait to welcome Faye back and having bought some of the equipment, incorporate a little into some of our classes.
