Hoopers - A Whole New World of Fun!!
Canine Hoopers is the latest canine sport that' taking the nation by storm. Bringing the same momentum and excitement as agility but requiring no jumps or tight turns - Canine Hoopers is much safer and has no negative impact on the health and well being of our precious pups.
Aside from being a safe and exciting form of exercise for your dog, it's also super accessible for any doggy parent and its rapidly growing in popularity.
Hoopers is a fun, low impact, free flowing sport that started in the US but now has a strong following here in the UK. It’s even part of the programme at Crufts now.
So what is Hoopers all about?
Think about the pace and excitement of agility - but with a gentler course that doesn’t have any jumps - and that’s hoopers. The courses are flowing and consist of a series of hoops, barrels on tunnels. There aren’t the tight turns and high-impact activities that you might see on an agility course.

Why is it so popular?
The main reason is the same as for agility and any other canine sport - it’s FUN!
Lots of dog owners also like Hoopers because they feel it is safer and more suitable for some dogs, particularly older ones. The equipment is cheaper and easy to set up, making it more accessible for more people.
Who is Hoopers suited to?
The joy of Hoopers is that it is truly well-suited to ALL dogs. The tunnels and hoops are typically 80cm across, making them large enough for big breeds and roomy for smaller ones.
Because the courses are ground level, they are suitable for young puppies and elderly or disabled dogs (who are otherwise fit and well), who can take part without any worries about damaging joints or bones.
