Benefits of Pack Walks
Pack walks are an excellent activity for dogs which offers them the opportunity to socialise in a safe environment and provides them with the opportunity to explore the environment in a relaxed but structured way.
Dogs often enjoy the company of other dogs and the sense of taking part in a combined activity with other dogs. It provides them with the chance to be with other dogs without the added stress of competition or insecurities that can occur in a play situation in off lead areas.
Dogs learn from successful interactions with other dogs and will take their cues from other dogs in the group. On a structured pack walk we guide behaviours by redirecting undesired behaviours and positively rewarding the behaviours we want. We also assess each dog and how they will fit with the pack, holding the safety of all dogs as our top priority.
Pack walks are very useful in providing exercise and training at the same time, while the dog is enjoying the environment and learning to practice self control, develop better social skills and help them understand the world around them. All of these skills help a dog become more relaxed and supports the training and behaviours that you are working towards.
All dogs must be accustomed to walking on a lead.
Dogs must be over 12 months of age to join the main Pack Walks (Puppy Packs will be an age appropriate duration)
Any dog that is reactive to other dogs or people may not be considered suitable for a pack walk.
All dogs will be required to undergo at least two assessment walks, prior to joining a pack.
Dogs will be collected from and delivered to your address. Dogs must be left in a safe, easily accessed place on your property which provides adequate shelter for your dog, pre departure and post return.
All dogs must have an appropriate collar and wear their registration tag.
Pack walks will be of 60 to 90 minutes duration, but dogs will potentially be away from your property for approximately two to three hours, depending on your location and the site chosen for the walk.
