Dog Parkour (TM) combines elements of human parkour and dog agility to create an accessible activity for dogs and humans alike. Dogs get introduced to the world of jumping, climbing, balancing over, crawling under, and going around different obstacles in their everyday world. Parkour can be done anywhere and is limited only by one’s imagination. Dog Parkour helps with confidence and overcoming fears, and it is a low impact but challenging activity for any canine athlete.
International Dog Parkour Association was the first organization to offer dog parkour titles. We are also the the only organization to have founders that include dog trainers, a veterinarian, and experienced (human) parkour practitioners that have trained with the founders of the discipline. We believe in keeping with the spirit of parkour and this means we do not offer competitions and try to promote an atmosphere of safely exploring and conquering challenges found naturally in the environment.
