Social training walks for dogs who have attended Love Your Paws training classes and are happy both on and off lead (with reliable recall) and who are happy in the company of other dogs and people.
*PLEASE NOTE: if you haven’t attended an Adventure Walk before please check that this is the right session for you prior to booking.
As with everything in life, if we stop practising the skills that we learn, they can easily fade away. Adventure Walks are a great way to keep your training skills up, ask me about training challenges you may be facing and chat to other like minded dog owners. Your dogs also get to brush up on their skills, tell me about what they’ve been up to (yes, they do talk to me!) and have fun with other sociable dogs.
We practice the core skills of lead walking, recall and focus but as the walks are real life training in real life settings we also use the events that naturally occur as training opportunities; for example meeting other dogs, crossing roads, seeing wild life and livestock and practicing sit / place in new surroundings.
Dogs who are 9 months plus who have attended training classes or had 1-2-1 training with Love Your Paws and who want to keep their skills honed, or would enjoy a social walk with other dogs. If you're dog is ready for Adventure walks we have probably already talked about it... if you're unsure please ASK BEFORE booking as training walks may be more suitable. Our training walks are just as fun but have a greater emphasis on training.
The sessions are usually 60 to 90 minutes.
We choose a variety of different locations around south west Cornwall making the most of the woodland, beach, moorland, coastal path and countryside walks available to us. Some walks are longer then others, some have uneven / steep terrain and may include stiles; please double check before booking that the walk is suitable for you / your dog.
