Clubs, societies and individuals are able to host Canine Hoopers UK shows/competitions/Instructors courses. Canine Hoopers UK strives to protect the long term well-being of the dog by maintaining flowing courses of low impact obstacles. Canine Hoopers UK aims to be an inclusive dog sport making sure that this sport is accessible to all dogs and handlers, in particular those handlers with limited mobility.
Canine Hoopers UK also strives to promote only force free modern training techniques through the assessment and accreditation of Canine Hoopers UK Accredited Trainer Scheme.
Accredited Canine Hoopers UK Trainers will have been thoroughly assessed and only accredited to Canine Hoopers UK once instruction is at a high standard. We are committed to making sure that all Canine Hoopers UK Accredited Trainers are teaching to a high standard and that they are using modern force free training techniques.
The purpose of the Canine Hoopers UK competitions are to enable competitors to showcase their “teams” abilities, with a team comprising of one handler and dog partnership. Hoopers courses will be fast and flowing and can include bonus challenges.
