Hoopers Classes

BRAND NEW! – Hoopers Classes, Melksham, Wiltshire.

Canine Hoopers was created as an all-inclusive dog sport. It's a low impact sport and so is kind on the joints meaning that all dogs can have a go. From the smallest to the largest breed, from the younger puppies to our senior dogs all are all welcome.

It's ideal for dogs and owners of all abilities and fitness levels, and we've also found it to help nervous and reactive dogs.

The dogs navigate a course made up of hoops, barrels and tunnels similar to an agility course, but there are no jumps or tight turns. The courses are smooth and flowing meaning it can be enjoyed by dogs who might have achy joints, heavy dogs who can't tackle some of the equipment in agility and by younger dogs. Owners and dogs work as a team to navigate the course, and so it's a great bonding activity.

As this is held in an outdoor setting all puppies must have had their second vaccinations and be at least 16 weeks old. ​All classes held at Vinnys Getaway, Melksham.
