With the launch of Vermont Canine Adventures, I am fulfilling a life-long dream. I have been preparing for the start-up by working with my three dogs. Even with all the training I've given them in the past. I've seen significant improvements in their behavior when we go on regular hikes. They are stimulated in a balanced way, not only do they get the physical exercise they need but also the much needed mental exercise! My dogs are happier, more relaxed, less needy, and far more confident! These improvements have definitely made me more happy and relaxed as well!
I know from talking to friends and clients who live out in the country and work long hours, often a distance from their homes, how hard it is for them to get their dogs to day care or provide enough exercise and mental stimulation for their dogs.
This is where I can help! I will pick up and drop off your dogs at your home and give them lots of opportunities for running, playing, learning, exploring, and having fun! A place where dogs can be dogs!
For your peace of mind, and your dog's health and happiness, consider Vermont Canine Adventures!
If your dog needs extra exercise because you're working or out of your house long hours, the weather is too extreme for your comfort, or your dog is super energetic, I will take your dog for a vigorous walk or run. Or, if they prefer a nice stroll.
I will pick your dog up at home and walk them in your neighborhood or areas around your home. It's all designed for your dog to return home happy and to make your walks more enjoyable.
If your dog has excellent recall, I will remove the leash so we can play fetch or other games that your dog enjoys. He/she has more room to roam for additional exercise and stimulation. This will also help prepare your dog for dog camp!
If you’re not sure that your dog is ready for camp or you have a special idea of how you’d like your dog to spend time when you’re not available, contact me and let’s see what we can work out!
Walks are up to 60 minutes $25/per dog
We also offer off leash recall training
Dogs are off leash and get to enjoy all the benefits of socializing in a pack dynamic. We bring the dogs to fun, friendly environments for them to get their much needed daily exercise, this is a time for the dogs to run, walk, jump, frolic, explore, play, swim and learn. Dog Camp is for friendly dogs that are reliable off-leash and get along with other dogs, people and children. Because there is a small number of dogs in each pack the dogs get to form stronger bonds with their pack mates who they get to see every week. We also work on basic obedience such as sit stays, down stays and recall. All of this helps build their self control and confidence. Dogs are taught to pack walk (follow behind the pack leader) in addition to being granted free play and exploring time on each hike.
