Service Description

Social walks A free structured walk for almost any dog. (Dates below) All owners and dogs are encouraged to come along to our structured social walks. You're welcome to bring the kids, bring the partner or your friend along for a nice structured walk and build a loving, caring dog community. This is a great way to have your dogs co-existing with other dogs and people. Please be mindful of others. Bullying and discouragement won't be tolerated. Not all dogs like other dogs and that's okay, this does not mean they can't come along and be exposed to other dogs and people on a controlled and managed way. Having a dog with reactivity is stressful enough without the second degree from other dog owners. This community walk is to create a supportive dog culture full of support, patience and kindness from other owners and from dog trainers. So please, don't be discouraged to bring dogs who need some space. This is a good controlled environment to begin getting exposure to other dogs. I just ask that you take the necessary precautions and listen to the advice of a trainer. The catch! -NO dog to dog interaction! None! No exceptions! -Any dogs with behaviour problems must be labelled as such. Eg, "give space"/ "anxious"/ "no dogs" / "do not pat" -All dog to dog reactive dogs must be muzzled. -Under no circumstances is a dog to be off lead! You will be asked to leash your dog or leave the group if you will not comply. -No long lines (no lead longer than 6ft) -Owners are responsible for picking up after their dog. -Owners are responsible for giving their dog access to water. -Owners are responsible for their own dogs. (Please note assistance will be available by me for any behaviour issues that arise during the walk and all dogs will be monitored by me for the safety of the group. There is no need to book, however, if you have dog with any behaviour issues please notify me via email before attending) No bookings needed, community walks are held on the last Weekend of every month. stay tuned for day and time via mutts about training Facebook events. We do try to keep the walks on a Sunday between 12pm and 4pm
