Introduction to Parkour Workshop

with Stephanie Ortel

Sunday, May 2nd 9am - 12pm

Saturday, May 15th 12pm - 3pm

 

Are you looking forward to spending quality time bonding with your dog once the weather is better? Check out Parkour in the Parks classes with Stephanie Ortel! But before you can join our outdoor classes you need to learn some Parkour skills. This Parkour Workshop will get you in shape to head outdoors and have some Parkour fun!

What is 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.

This Introduction to Parkour Workshop will take place indoors and we will introduce the dogs to all of the novice parkour behaviors (4 Feet On, 2 Feet On, Moving Obstacle, Under, Through, In, Over, Around, Balance, Wait on Obstacle, Back up). We will cover all safety requirements and embrace IDPKA philosophy of being safe, having fun, letting the dog choose and building confidence.

Who is the workshop for? If you're interested in getting outdoors in the spring and practicing parkour, this is a great way to properly learn the behaviors indoors in a safe manner. If you weren't able to join one of our Introduction to Parkour classes, this workshop will cover much of what was covered in class. If you've taken a class, you can use the workshop for more practice!

**An Introduction to Parkour class or workshop must be taken before joining our outdoor classes**
