Hoopers

This has been posted with kind permission from the CHUCK Facebook Page.

Their website is: www.caninehoopersuk.co.uk

Hoopers is a smooth and free flowing sport based on the dogs love of running. The hoops themselves are lightweight, plastic and tall enough to accommodate even giant breeds. We use only 80cm tunnels to fulfil our aim of being totally breed inclusive. Due to the low impact nature of the sport, it is suitable for almost all dogs, including those which other, high impact, sports are maybe not so suitable. In competition expect to see fun filled courses with extra handling challenges for those who choose them, progression is based on consistency and accuracy, not class wins and speed. Our Accredited Instructors are based all over the UK and train to the highest standards using only force free training methods.

I am looking to taking my level 1 accredited instructors course this year.

Location: Minehead
Time: Monday Mornings 
Next Course Starts: FULL (fortnightly)

Location: Minehead
Time: Thursday Morning 9:30am
Next Course Starts: 21st March (4 week course, fortnightly)
