About the event

We are incredibly excited to be collaboratively hosting our second Community Pack Walk in Abbotsford, BC.

Hosts: Ashlin, Owner and Dog Trainer of The K9 Mindset Academy & Kim, Owner of Outbound Canine Co.

Come meet like-minded owners in your community. We are reactive dog owner advocates and reactive dog owners ourselves! We know what it is like to face these big feelings and travel through this journey - don't do it alone! Join our inclusive, supportive and welcoming group! Tools are absolutely welcome. You will not be judged for your educated training methods.

We will start with a group discussion with just the humans to discuss engagement, loose-leash walking, tools, advocacy and more. Prepare yourself with questions to ask and be prepared to train on-leash around other dogs. We will have a quick meet & greet to give you the opporutunity to introduce yourself to the community and what training you are working on with your dog. You will then be guided along a local trail by Kimberly while exercising obedience and neutrality. Ashlin will be available for questions and tips throughout.

As with all of our pack walks, there are absolutely NO dog-to-dog meetings include nose and bum sniffs. In order to keep our community safe and everyone within their comfort zone, it is expected you will have physical control of your dog at all times (This does not mean we expect zero reactions! We just expect you have a plan in place to keep everyone safe).

Rules:

  • Dogs must remain on leash at all times and under physical control
  • NO nose-to-nose or bum sniffs (EVEN IF you know each other)
  • NO play between dogs
  • Space given to others at all times
  • Muzzles are strongly recommended for dogs struggling with dog/human reactivity
  • Leave your judgement at the door as we are an inclusive group of owners
  • Training tools are accepted
  • Every dog requires at least one handler
  • It is expected you already have a solid foundation and understanding of your dog's body language, ques, triggers and thresholds

What to Bring:

  • comfortable footwear
  • high value rewards (more than you think you need)
  • water
  • training tools welcome!
  • leash no longer than 6'
  • visuals (patches/leash wraps)
  • bear spray
  • open mind and positive attitude
  • Dress for the weather for both you and your dog

*You MUST fill out online waiver in order to participate. You can find this waiver located on the homepage of The K9 Mindset Academy's website

*Exact location will be given closer to date
