Special Opportunity - Hiking Pack Walk

Posted in Special Opportunity Workshops

Cost $45

This on-the-go workshop will emphasize teaching your pup to stay calm around other dogs, remain focused on you while in distracting environments, and understanding ‘pack walk’ behavior.

We will introduce you and your pup to "Structured Socialization" vs "Recreational Socialization" as we hike through local parks. You will be able to enjoy the wonders of a great walk with your pup, and learn to be an advocate for your dog as you introduce him to the world at large.

*Please note that we strongly encourage (but do not require) attendance at our Walking Workshop Levels I and II prior to participating in a Pack Walk.

Our hiking locations are considered medium difficulty (we will be walking at a relatively easy pace). While this is not intended to be a high-intensity workout, you should be comfortable hiking these distances in a trail setting. If you have questions about your pup's readiness for this workshop, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

2SpeakDog will provide any parking permits and lunch at the workshop.
