What is Dog Parkour? According to the International Dog Parkour Association, they describe it as any activity where… “Dogs get introduced to the world of jumping, climbing, balancing over, crawling under, and going around different obstacles in their everyday world. Parkour can be done anywhere and is limited only by one’s imagination. Dog parkour helps with confidence and overcoming fears, and it is a low impact but challenging activity for any canine athlete.”

Students in the class will have the option to complete the items needed to submit their application for both the International Dog Parkour Association Training Level Title (PKD-T) and/or Novice Level Title (PKD-N).

Introduction to Treibball

Treibball, also known as “Urban Herding”, is a dog sport invented in Germany over 10 years ago by Dutchman Jan Nijboer. The ultimate object of the game is to get your dog to push 8 different balls (think human exercise balls) into a goal while the handler stays in a set area. The dog takes directions on which ball to push into the goal. There is usually a 15 minute time limit to get the job done.


In our Introduction to Treibball class, we’ll teach you and your dog the foundation behaviors needed to eventually drive 8 balls across a field into a net under your direction.  Your dog will learn how to line up behind the ball, push it and take direction from you from a distance.
