Group play/daycare isn't the right fit for all dogs, but all dogs deserve the opportunity to socialize in a structured environment. Pack walks fill that void!
Pack walks are a fun, new program that we're excited to offer to the WNY area. These group walks provide a physical outlet, while also keeping your dog mentally stimulated. It also gives you the opportunity to practice obedience, leash walking and basic manners around other dogs and humans!
A great supplement to training for reactive dogs, as well as fearful and nervous dogs.
We meet bi-weekly at local parks, paths and nature trails around the WNY area - we occasionally end our walk at an ice cream stand or brewery!
Therapy Dog Prep Class
The Therapy dog Prep class is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with all the testing aspects or see what your weak spots are and where you can improve before taking a Therapy Dog International test. Classes will be taught by Alex de Foucault or Gretchen Buckles, both are certified TDI evaluators.
We encourage all parties interested in testing to check out and take the prep class. However, it is not mandatory and you can certainly test without taking the prep class beforehand.
Prep classes are generally held the week prior to a therapy dog test.
We are also happy to help you work on preparing for the test in private lessons. Please visit our Private lesson page for more information.
