A structured pack walk is a walk that shows you how to properly communicate with your dog in a way that he/she understands using various tools, your energy and body language. I want to show families that you do not have to struggle with walking your dog, it can and should be a very calming, relaxing activity and one that, if done right, strengthens the bond between you and your dog. It is NOT a walk for socializing and giving treats for good behavior. It is about empowering the human. This is how walking your dog should look and feel.
All dogs are required to be on a properly fitted prong collar, slip lead, and/or e-collar with a 4-6 foot leash-NO retractable leashes allowed. (For dogs under 10 lbs please use a micro prong or slip lead).
The walk lasts for approximately one hour and all participants are required to bring their own water and poop bags.
Please Note: When everyone arrives please keep distance from other walkers and dogs initially for respect and safety reasons. No dog should ever meet face to face on leash, everyone should refrain from using high pitched voices and be as calm and low-key as possible. Limit one person per dog.
Meetup location and time will vary, but will all be in the Ottawa, IL area. I also have an event created on Facebook with location and time posted.
