I attended the instructor course with my reactive dog and both had a great day. She has specific needs but was still able to fully take part and really enjoyed the day and learned loads as did I. The course itself was very well set out and although there was lots to cover I think I kept up apart from the footwork (line dancing 😆). Carrie-Anne broke it down for me and put it into terms I could understand even with both left feet, to the point I've taught it without falling over. I recommend hoppers to all the dog's and owners I know and they have all had great fun.

The lovely thing with Canine Hoopers World is not only is it great fun for you and your dog but you can work at whatever level you want. So if you want to just have fun and a laugh with other handlers that's great but if you are a little competitive then that is also possible. Whether you have a small dog, large dog, young dog or old dog it's an all inclusive activity and a little addictive!

Carrie’s Instructors course is so good! I wish I could do it again and again! There are so many people who want to enjoy Hoopers with their dogs and Carrie’s course enables us to help them do just that.
