Pack Walks encourage dogs to walk together without often interacting face-to-face. Over time, walking together builds trust. Walking together tends to avoid competition and insecurities that come with other kinds of socialization.
This is because pack-walked dogs are consistently socialized in a structured way that doesn't allow for problematic exchanges. Even dogs who have done very poorly at a dog park can do great on a structured pack walk.
Pack Walks are a great way to give dogs good exercise and training at the same time. While dogs are walking and exploring, they are also learning to practice self-control, develop social intelligence and listen to the leader. These skills will show themselves in a dog that is better behaved and more relaxed with less training.
Pack Walks are available to anyone and everyone. There is no appointment needed, just how up! If you've never been before, your first one is free. After that, we take a $10 fee which we donate to local rescues in the area.
We ask that there be NO retractable leashes and one handler per dog.
