What is Hooper’s?

Hooper’s is a fun dog sport that is ideal for dogs and owners of all ages and fitness levels.

Dogs navigate a course of hoops, barrels and tunnels with the same pace and excitement as agility.
But the courses are flowing and don’t involve tight turns – making it accessible for everyone!
Hooper’s is focused on the ability of dog and owner to work together as a smooth-flowing team so it is a great bonding activity too.

  What You Will Learn

Everyone is welcome (even without a dog)

We also have time for theory/conversation/socialising at breaktime in our café where teas, coffees and cakes can be purchased.

Please note: this course is only for adults 19+.

But this didn't stop her pursuing her dream career - she enrolled on the FdSc Animal Health and Management at Bicton College and went on to gain a first class BSc (Hons) in Animal Science and an MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology.
