Hoopers is the newest craze in dog sports.
It is low impact and free-flowing with no sharp turns or twists.
It is suitable for dogs of any age. Puppies must be at least nine months old.
The course is made up of plastic hoops, barrels, large tunnels (80cm-1m) and sometimes a touch-tango mat, which is a large rubberised running contact mat.
Distance handling is the key to this sport and it links well with Agility.
It would be suitable for young agility dogs to work on independently and retired agility dogs and their owners that still want to have fun.
