Course Building - Hoopers Courses
A full day workshop looking at Hoopers course design and layout. From training sequences to competition courses, we will explore how to set effective and safe yet challenging courses for dogs and handlers from pre competition through Starters and Beginners level courses. With emphasis on the dogs lines for safety and fluidity and also setting handling challenges and 'Extras'. We will look at courses from several perspectives including trainer, judge, handler and dog and work through courses of various class types.
There will be no spectator spaces on this workshop, this is very much a hands on learning experience, there are two types of working place available - participant and participant + dog. Anyone bringing a dog will have the opportunity to run some of the courses which we set throughout the day. Dogs should have a good understanding of all of the different equipment in the sport and comfortably completing basic courses/large sequences.
