Michelle is an accredited instructor with Dog Parkour UK, and working towards International Dog Parkour Accreditation.
So, WHAT is Dog Parkour?
If you've seen sequences in James Bond films, where people leap from building to building across roof tops, it's not that. That's serious Human Parkour.
In Dog Parkour we work with the environment (natural or built) to build confidence in interacting with it. See that tree stump? Can you put two feet on it? Can you put four feet on it? Can you go around it? Can you go under it? This is all done after tuition in safety, effective support and 'spotting' and wearing a well fitting harness and lead.
WHY Dog Parkour?
It's FUN! For you, and your dog. They start with easy tasks that are clearly explained, they achieve success and reward. This builds confidence too. I CAN do this! Then they can work towards more challenging obstacles and working more independently. This will challenge your training, timing and dog communication skills.
WHO can do it?
Parkour is very inclusive. Absolutely any dog of any age can do Parkour and adjustments are made to accommodate young puppies or dogs and handlers with additional needs safely.
WHERE can I do it?
Anywhere! The course will develop your "Parkour Eye" and you'll see opportunity around every corner. The course is held in Little Stoke.
