Parkour, an individual sport which focuses on one’s journey to mental and physical strength, has been redesigned for the human and dog team. Dog Parkour concentrates on the developing teamwork between a dog and its human as they learn to challenge themselves through navigating the environment in new exciting ways.
Although it is a non-competitive sport, titles are still available and can be earned via video submission through the International Dog Parkour Association and All Dogs Parkour. This sport promotes mental and physical health by regulating training methods and restricting activities by the size of the individual dog. These limitations make Dog Parkour an excellent activity for any age or mobility.
Parkour Dog! is broken into 2 group classes each with sessions taking place at our facility and local parks. Advanced teams get access to bi-weekly drop-in sessions at local parks.
