Pack Walk Prep
April 29, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 12:50 pm EDT
This is the first step to joining our Mt. Tabor Pack walks!
This is a leash handling 101 class designed to help you with the basics of communicating with your dog and achieving a loose leash on your walks. My goal is to provide you with the tools needed to confidently join the larger group. During the assessment class we will decide if you should continue working on loose leash walking in lower distraction environments for an amount of time before joining the larger group. If your pup is overstimulated for the pack walk with the larger group, they will not benefit from it. I look forward to meeting you and your pup!
**Please note: To have an effective class we need a minimum of three (3) people registered, not including the host. Classes with less than three attendees will be rescheduled. Please check the attendee count and messages BEFORE you head to the class. We will do our best to notify you the Friday evening before the event if we are going to cancel due to low turnout.**
THE BIG PACK GOAL!
The larger pack provides an opportunity to walk a 90 minute, preplanned route with 3 training stops. It is important for both handler and dog to feel comfortable moving forward to get all the benefits pack walk offers.
******Bring a treat pouch FULL of HIGH VALUE treats. We will need a full pouch and ideas for higher value are boiled chicken, cheese, hotdog, etc. and a clicker (if you use one). We’ll have clickers on hand as well.
***Leashes must be fixed 6ft. or less***
We look forward to seeing you there and we are here if you have any additional questions. To learn more about our private training and socialization options, check out our website at http://www.thebalanceddogpdx.com
