What is Hoopers Agility?

Canine 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.

Hoopers is a wonderful way to have fun with your dog from 16 weeks old to our golden oldies who have been there and done it all before but cannot do it any more.  We use free shaping to encourage the dogs to think as they gain understanding of the sport.  This is perfect for slow and speedy dogs.

The dogs go through the hoops around the barrels and through the tunnels which they all love and it is all low impact. If you are not so mobile we teach distance handling so you won’t have to run unless of course you would like to.
