Our hiking program is not accepting new pack members until Early 2020. We Are hiring more pack leaders and expanding our service area to include Central Austin.
Please join the waitlist so we can contact you before we open the program to the general public.
Daily Hiking Pack
Hiking is the best possible exercise for dogs! There is no better way to satisfy a dog’s natural drive for exercise, novelty, leadership, and adventure. The sights and smells on the trails stimulate your dog’s senses. Climbing, swimming, and running on uneven terrain exercises your dog’s brain as well as all their muscle groups. Our pack and the dogs we meet along the trail offer socialization opportunities without the closed in feeling that makes dog parks wild. Being asked to remain responsive in a stimulating natural environment reinforces the calm, obedient mentality we want our dogs to maintain at home. We also love the natural challenges that arise on the trail! It’s incredible to watch a dog’s confidence grow as they learn to navigate the great outdoors and face their fears with our guidance.
All dogs who join our pack begin with a training session. Being consistent with our philosophy and methods at home allows the owner to enjoy all the benefits of the training each dog receives during the hikes.
A regular routine is essential for our pack members. Dogs sign up by the month for 2, 3 or 5 days per week. For the first month while we dedicate extra time and attention to teaching your dog loose leash walking, trail manners, and hiking with the pack there is an additional training fee after which the standard pricing applies. We pick your dogs up at your home, go on a pack hike in an off leash park, then drop your dog off, happy and tired. If you are interested in joining our pack, get on our waitlist!
Riding in a car and hiking with a pack involves being well socialized with other dogs. All dogs must live in our service area, which will be expanding within Austin, but not to the surrounding areas, in 2020. We do not have a drop-off option and we are not able to pick up from businesses or apartments to which we do not have direct access from where our car is parked (i.e. elevators or internal hallways).
