Canine hoopers world instructor course
Course building, running courses, building lesson plans, learn the ins & outs or Hoopers with Carrie-Anne Selwyn.
Hoopers – the latest fun dog activity. Learn all about it from Carrie-Anne Selwyn, an accredited instructor, competitor and judge.
Hoopers is great for ALL dogs, it doesn’t matter what size, breed or physical capability (great for those retired agility dogs). It is fun for EVERYONE!. It is based on agility, but instead of jumps, teams need to navigate their way through a course of “hoops”. There are also versions incorporating barrels and tunnels. The more technical courses take precision, teamwork and training skill as you weave your way through directional changes.
Who is this for?
This is a great opportunity for you to learn all about this wonderful new activity – Are you a trainer who wants to add an awesome new class for their clients, or offer something different.
