Walks are organised to take place at local parks, etc. There is no cost, there are no lessons provided although Instructor may offer advice where appropriate. This is an opportunity to walk with other dog lovers, dog enthusiasts, pet professionals etc. Participants may work on training and have some fun. Safety first Always!
Your dog should be wearing appropriate training gear. This is an on-leash walk, no off-leash exercises permitted. Appropriate gear includes Flat Collar, Gentle Leader, and Sensible Harness or a muzzle.
Come prepared with poop bags to clean up after your dog.
Children are welcome on the walks and are the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Safety first! Children 12 years of age and older are welcome to walk their own dog, as long as there are no safety concerns. Strong dogs that are still learning leash manners should be handled by an adult.
Be considerate of other dog/handlers, not all dogs like to be approached; please always ask before approaching and attempting a greeting. If your dog does not like to be approached, please ask the approacher to stay at a suitable distance. Everyone who participates in the walk will understand and accommodate your dog’s needs.
When oncoming dogs and handlers approach our pack, please pull over to the side and give plenty of space to the oncoming team. So many dogs in a pack can be overwhelming to some dogs and persons and we want to be polite; we want to set ourselves and others up for success! We also want to set a good example for others.
If your dog is reactive or offers aggressive behaviors toward other dogs and/or people, Then these dogs need to be muzzled.
If you work a reactive dog during the group walk, it is absolutely your responsibility to insure the safety of your dog and others. Your dog will be kept at a safe distance so that if he does make a bad decision, no contact is made with another dog or person. Dogs and handlers who cause an unsafe or stressful experience for their dog or the general group will be asked to continue their training work in a different environment. At no time will the general public be put at risk.
