structured Pack walks
*** space is extremely limited ***
Rates start at $38-42 per walk, with a 3 day per week minimum. Prices vary by area.
Structured pack walks are so much more than a walk around your neighborhood. We pick your dog up at home and take him/her for a 1.5 to 2 hour long walk in a pack structure. Walks are varied and can include urban settings or more nature-oriented spaces.
Pack walks are extremely helpful in resetting problem behavior, building confidence and positive social skills in a safe and structured way. We expose dogs to different everyday situations such as busy shopping districts/centers, crowds, loud noises, active construction sites, other dogs on leash and behind fences, squirrels, birds, skateboards, bicycles and many more.
During a pack walk we can work on a variety of issues you might be facing with your dog. We frequently use the walks to shape and strengthen leash manners, work with dogs who are highly reactive, teach them the difference between play time and calm time, work on impulse control and many other useful skills.

adventure weekends - $500
3 days of all-day activity exploring the Bay Area. We may have a tourist adventure around San Francisco, explore Napa Valley, go hiking in the North Bay, or head up to the hills in the east bay to scout all the best views. We will of course be practicing our calm skills around distractions, impulse control, and polite walking manners, as well as regulated playtime. For these weekends I will host up to 6 dogs who would really love this kind of vacation!
Adventure weekend dogs must be able to do 3 days in a row of high endurance activity and must be at least 8 months old.
Dogs are picked up Friday morning and will be dropped home in time for Sunday dinner. Each dog will also get a digital photo album of their adventures!
