What is Hoopers?
Hoopers is a fun activity for dogs and their owners, that is low impact on your dogs joints. Your dog will navigate a flowing course of obstacles, mainly hoops but also can include barrels, tunnels and a mat. Learning with your dog and building on your teamwork together. Great for physical and mental stimulation for your dog. This sport is suitable for most dogs over the age of 6 months and handlers of all ages and abilities as distance handling is encouraged (no running).
I've been training and competing in agility for about 8 years with my rescue miniature poodle Dobby. 4 years ago we started our hoopers journey. Self-teaching and attending workshops to further our learning. We then began competing in 2020 and have enjoyed it ever since.
In 2023 I brought home my new poodle puppy. Hoopers is a great activity for puppies as it's all low impact. We have been training together, little and often from just a few months old. I can't wait to see our progress over the coming months and years together.
My passion for training, particularly hoopers, has grown over the years. In 2021 I completed the Canine Hoopers World Instructors Level 1 and Level 2 courses online. I now want to share this great activity with other dog owners, so they can enjoy time with their dogs.
