Parkour Dog Program
What is dog parkour?
Parkour, sometimes referred to as urban agility, is 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.
Our Parkour Dog Program is broken down into 3 levels so that each team can progress at their own pace. Each level is taught at our facility and covers a specific skill set. We also offer a weekly session at an outdoor location so that we can provide feedback to each team in the environment where you will be parkouring the most.
