Dogs on the ball are always on the lookout for more ways to have fun! We are very excited about “Parkour”-the latest up and coming sport to hit the dog scene. Like Treibball, this sport is all about relationship, fun and creativity! Parkour is tricks, fitness, and obedience, all in one! Parkour by definition is using the environment for playing and training. The great thing about it is that you can do it anywhere, anytime, using whatever obstacles are present and available-trees, benches, bike racks, tires, etc. There is training involved of course, but Parkour allows the flexibility to choose appropriate obstacles for your dog’s ability, and the creativity to train a variety of fun behaviors on cue. I have recently been working with Flash on these skills during our walks in public parks, on the college campus where I work, and here at home on the farm. Using the world as a playground for training and playing is FUN! With an emphasis on safety, The International Dog Parkour Association has a non-competitive titling by video program, and you can pick the time and place for everything you do!
