Dog Sports

Some of our canine companions are at their best when they are given a job to do - especially if they are from a work orientated breed.  Providing dogs with a breed appropriate outlet is great for preventing undesirable behaviours forming, good mental and physical exercise and a perfect bonding opportunity for dog and owner.

Other benefits include:

  • builds confidence

  • increases focus and engagement

  • creates optimism

  • FUN!

 

Classes are held in various locations including Penarth, Wenvoe, Sully, Dinas Powys, Barry and Cardiff.  Please see individual class for exact location.

Sporty Canine Club

Canine Sporty Club

Not sure what sort of dog sport you and your dog would enjoy?  Looking for
something else to do with them to have fun and build your bond?

Canine Sporty Club is a weekly class that covered a different dog sport each week as well as the foundations and groundwork that are important across all sports.  Classes are pay as you go or you can prepay for 4 classes at a discount.

Super Sniffers Scentwork Classes

Super Sniffers

Super Sniffers is a fun class based around scentwork. You’ll help your dog to learn to identify and find a variety of scents in different scenarios.

 

Scentwork is a great sport for mental enrichment and can help boost calmness and build confidence, problem solving and independence for your dog.  

Outdoor Scentwork Classes

Scentwork Gone Wild

An outdoors alternative to my Super Sniffers course.  Each class takes you to a different location to practice your dog's sniffing skills 'out in the wild'.

 

This class runs on a pay as you go basis and runs twice a month.  All abilities are welcome to attend.

Mantrailing

Mantrailing

The ultimate sport of hide and seek for dogs.  Dog's are taught to follow the scent trail of a hidden person - just like a search and rescue dog!  Sessions are perfect for all dogs, especially reactive ones as each dog is taught individually.

Hoopers Classes

Hoopers

Hoopers is a low impact sport for dogs and their owners. You’ll learn to direct your dog around a course from one position, so it’s accessible for dogs and owners of all abilities.

 

In particular, if your dog is a large or tiny breed, needs extra space or patience, or as an owner you have limited ability, then this will be a great class for you to have fun together. Hoopers really is for everyone.

 

I’m a Canine Hoopers UK Accredited Instructor.
