What does that mean? Partly, it means that every day is a new adventure. We go to different parks like: Cherry Beach, Humber Bay, Coronation, Ramsden, Earlscourt, Bickford, Cedarvale. We also combine off leash adventures with on leash walks to create our famous 50/50 walks, where we park away from the off leash park, walk in, play, and then walk back out. This is a great combination of learning, because they get to practice their on-leash skills, see new people and places while on leash, and then run around and burn their energy at the park. But, most importantly, adventure walks allows the dogs to have a new experience each day, and that helps them with their socialization skills.
What is Socialization, and why is it important?
Socialization is the process of exposing our dogs to different kinds of people, animals, and environments which involve everything from dog obedience classes to vet visits to walks in the park. Through this process we help our dogs develop confidence and ease which goes a long way in helping them become resilient in the face of unsettling situations. And most importantly, it doesn’t end with Puppyhood. It’s a lifelong process and takes consistent practice. Which means, without practice and commitment, it can be unlearned. That’s where we come in—to help you with the “work” of dog walking. We take the dogs to different places thereby exposing them to new people, dogs, environments, sounds, sights, etc. Think of our walks as school for your dog—but don’t tell the dogs…they just think its fun.
