Dog Parkour

Parkour is a physical activity where dogs learn to interact with their environment.  Parkour is for all dogs, no matter the breed, age or activity level. 

In our Parkour classes we will cover all safety requirements and embrace IDPKA philosophy of being safe, having fun, letting the dog choose and building confidence.  Dogs must be able to work in a harness with a leash attached to their harness.  Head halters, slip leashes, prong collars, choke collars and e-collars are not appropriate for this class. 

While we love your leash reactive dogs, this class may not be the best choice if your dog reacts to other dogs in close proximity.  However, Parkour is still a WONDERFUL activity for leash reactive dogs!  Contact us if you are interested in private sessions OR check out Lori's virtual Introduction to Parkour class on Dog Sport University:

Once your dog has the basics they may be appropriate for outdoor classes.
