Paws for Life Adventures training walks are the ultimate way to put all of the skills you learn in training class into practice in a real life setting. Adolescent dogs, recently re homed dogs, or a dogs who have just.... forgotten what they know, can all benefit from our training walks.
With dog training we often find that it can be difficult to transfer the skills learnt in training classes to real life situations. Why does this happen? Because in training classes, we set our dogs up to succeed. We create a calm learning environment to help our dog's listen, learn and process all of the skills we are teaching them. When we're out in the 'real world' we can't always control what happens - off lead dogs, birds, rabbit trails, livestock, people who want to say 'hi' - the list goes on! Understandably, our dog's may find it more difficult to listen and it sometimes feels like all of their learning has gone out of the window. Training walks bridge that gap.
Paws for Life Adventures take place in different locations so our dogs can get used to a range of environments, sights and smells. On every walk we practice the core skills of lead walking 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, 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 (or with another rewards based trainer) and who may need to brush up on their skills, or would enjoy a social walk with other dogs.
The session is around one hour, sometimes a little longer depending on the day!
We vary the locations; some of our favourites places are Godolphin Woods, coastal walks, Tehidy Woods, the Towans. For the full list and dates, please click on “please select” under the Date: heading.
