I’M HERE TO HELP

I am a qualified reward based dog trainer offering highly recommended classes in Bramfield (near Hertford) and Harlow.  I also offer extremely popular in-home training across West Essex and East Hertfordshire.

Hoopers

So what is Hoopers Agility?  A low impact agility based sport where your dog runs through arches (hoops), around barrels and through short tunnels, it is a fun sport where distance handling is focussed on.  A fantastic pre-agility sport, a great sport without landing impact and an excellent retirement sport for ex-agility dogs.

For beginners I have FREE videos on my YouTube channel (Happiest Hounds Dog Training) and offer live and fully interactive Beginner Online Hoopers Classes to start your Hoopers journey.

For Beginner Online Hoopers Classes, you will need 3 hoops, 2 barrels and your garden or lounge to set up in.  The great news is that hoops are super easy to make yourself – see instruction video here.  For barrels you can use pop-up garden bins, large plant pots or anything equivalent for your dog to safely go around.

For advanced hoopers dogs, I offer Advanced Online Hoopers Classes.

For Advanced Online Classes, you will need 6 hoops, 4 barrels and your garden or a suitable safe area to set up in.

I teach in-person Advanced Hoopers Workshops at Developing Dogs in Ely, Cambridgeshire.

My Hoopers Online Classes and In-Person Workshops are highly recommended. 

If you’re a dog trainer and would like to host me for a Hoopers workshop for your clients, please do get in touch.  Whether it’s for your clients as beginners, seasoned agility pros or a group of instructors looking to add Hoopers to their classes, I have a tailored a workshop for you.

Here’s what Tamsin Durston (experienced agility instructor at Trent Park Agility Club) had to say:

“Lou came to Trent Park Dog Agility Club to give a Hoopers workshop to our instructor team… friendly, supportive instruction tailored to individuals, a structured session plan that ran perfectly to time and covered a variety of exercises, dog’s welfare considered throughout and delivered with enthusiasm and kindness! Lou was warm, understanding and really knew her theory!! Couldn’t recommend highly enough… we all LOVED the session!”
