Canine Hoopers at TVDTC - Wednesday 6th Feb

What is 'Hoopers'?

Hoopers is a dog sport that strives to be all inclusive and low impact. Courses are built to be flowing, to limit impact on the joints and equipment is all designed around allowing as many people and dogs being able to get involved.

Hoopers is about positive reinforcement both for handlers and the dogs, its about building a stronger bond with your dog and having fun together

We will be starting our first class on – Wednesday 6th Feb at 11am.

  • What will I need? - Treats and I mean A LOT of treats! Feed your dog a tiny breakfast and bring the rest of his dinner with you. Bring a combination of high and low value treats if you can and a treat bag or easy access pocket. 
  • If your dog is likely to run off, a long line or flat lead attached to a harness might be a good idea
  • Toy – if your dog is not a foodie bring a toy too, switching between food and toy rewards is very useful tool.
  • Sense of humour – we’re all here to have a good time, so leave the negativity at home and come prepared to laugh and encourage each other – positive reinforcement works for humans too you know!

Yellow/reactive dogs – hoopers is very supportive as is TVDTC of reactive and yellow dogs. Please indicate any reactive issues before the class and if we think your dog is not ready for a group situation yet (where dogs may be running loose) we’ll see if we can help find another space for you. 

Sign up for this at the club sessions.

Training in November

There will be no training on the Monday 5th, Wednesday 7th & Monday 12th November. Apologies, but this is due to heavy machinery & vehicle exhibitions on the showground. 

Wednesday 14th, Monday 19th and Wednesday 21st are also affected but this training has not had to be cancelled—just held in a different place : the Newark Pavilion. 

When you enter the main gates you turn left instead of right 
Go past green buildings on right to white fence 
Go through gate (usually open) 

Turn right down HORSE WALK 

Go past offices on left till you come to NEWARK PAVILION on your left, a single storey building.

The 26th and 28th are in our usual premises. (Stanley Sheldon)
