Do you have a puppy that is ready to start exploring beyond the backyard?

or Perhaps you have a dog in training that needs to be around more well-mannered dogs so you can practice your skills in public.

Adventure walks are a bit different than a normal walk you might take to give your dog some physical exercise. Socialization walks with your puppy or dog focus on proactive exposure — creating neutral and positive associations with different people, places, and things.

Each month we choose a different location and dogs are exposed to new and different things each time safely.

An adventure walk is a relaxed exploration of different environments, getting to see other people and animals from a distance, and an opportunity to start building very simple (but very important) training foundations. We use some of the basics such as name recognition, hand targeting, paws up, and settle will set you up for success in future walking in public.

The Goal

The goal of adventure walks is to create calm and positive associations with different things your dog sees, smells, hears, and otherwise experiences. This helps prevent fear, anxiety, or reactivity toward these things in the future.

Benji experienced so much while out and about — and many things we can’t even count since we lack his sense of smell! Here are some of the things I noticed:

Sights: Shadows from railings, dogs behind a fence, dogs on leash, baby stroller, a child playing on the jungle gym, a cat in the window, a man in a hat, fire hydrant, yellow color contrasts for crosswalks

Sounds: Barking, yard tools, airplanes, trucks, bicycle bells, buses passing

Surfaces: Asphalt, grass, metal manhole cover, raised sidewalk bumps, sand, gravel, tiled floor

Cost is FREE for Canine LEarning Academy STudents, current and past.
