Dog Parkour is the sport of exploration and teamwork; taking inspiration from dog agility, tricks and human Parkour. It's a brilliant way to spend time with your best friend; livening up your walks, enhancing your relationship and building confidence and fitness.
It can be as fast or slow paced as you and your dog desire and, despite often being referred to as Urban Agility, can be practiced almost anywhere!
In this course you will learn the building blocks of Parkour, enabling you to get out and start exploring safely together. We will cover everything you will need to achieve the Training title as awarded by the International Dog Parkour Association and can assist with your application if you wish.
Pre-requisites: Puppy Foundations/Life Skills class OR a Preparing For Class private session
To join in, you and your dog will ideally already have an understanding of clicker training and targeting, as well as being able to focus and settle in a class environment.

What I'm sure the boys would like to put is:
"WE LOVE YOU MORAG!" - Jake Dog and Mr Oliver
....but a more practical response would be: Before we met Morag we were at breaking point with our Border Collies, we had been to every training class we could find, we had done everything the dog books tell you to and we were still losing the battle for our dogs' minds.
Morag has given us practical techniques, productive classes, insightful one-to-ones, useful resources, moral support and hope!
Having come through the confidence course 1 & 2 and enjoyed the Beyond the Basics, heel work to music and Rally-O we are carrying on to learn more and can't wait for the next set of classes to start. We would (and often do) recommend the Well Connected Canine courses to anyone with any kind of dog.

Who says you can't teach a old dog new tricks? Our Jack Russell is 5 and had had no training, after just a few weeks she had a whole repertoire of new tricks. Edwina goes with my partner to work everyday so I don't get to spend much time with her. Morag's classes are our fun hour of the week where she enjoys learning new things with mum and seeing other dogs. Thanks Morag we'll see you at the next classes.
