Heelwork to Music Classes
will take place on the dates below - 8.30pm - 9.30pm
Kingston Vale Venue
We are taking a break from this class for a few months.
We will keep this page updated with further news.
Heelwork to Music is the combination of a handler moving their dog in different behaviours to a piece of music. The length of the routine can last from 1-minute at novice level to 3-4 minutes at advanced level. Several competitions are run throughout the year. Heelwork to Music displays are held on a regular basis throughout the Country, at Crufts and Discover Dogs.
We are not competition based but run the classes for the sheer fun and enjoyment of the activity.
The classes are very informal, challenging and fun.
We teach you to train your dog many different behaviours i.e. spin, bow, walking backwards, leg-weaving, crawl, walking-sideways to name but a few. We then start to put these moves together to a piece of music with you moving with your dog.
If the word dancing worries you because you think you can't dance, don't worry, it is not strictly dancing but learning to move to the beat of the music, incorporating the behaviours that your dog has been taught.
In this class we are fortunate enough to have the best combination of Dave teaching the required behaviours and Karen who is a dance teacher taking on the dance/music work.
The class is not a course but is on a purely come as you please basis on the above dates. You only move at a pace you feel comfortable with.
Go on, Give it a go - you may just be surprised at how talented both you and your dog are!
All dogs taking part in this class will need to have some basic obedience training as this will NOT be taught as part of the class.
Give us a call if you want to join these classes.
