Training hikes are an enriching outlet for socialization, physical exercise, and mental stimulation. Each hike takes your pup to a beautiful Hollywood Hills trail for an hour of on and/or off-leash hiking (as is deemed safe and appropriate by Puppy Trainer Jen), sniffing, and basic commands. Dogs practice their manners and focus in the "pack," learning to operate as a team with Puppy Trainer Jen and their doggie friends. After an afternoon of outdoor adventure, dogs return home feeling relaxed and fulfilled, so you can enjoy a calm evening together. Hikes include pick up and drop off, during which owners are not required to be home - simply leave a lockbox code or key with Jen, and rest assured your pup will have an amazing day.
Training hikes are a wonderful training opportunity for dogs who are leash reactive or unfocused on walks, but are not suitable for poorly socialized or aggressive dogs.
Training hikes are conducted in a "pack" format, so all dogs must be pre-approved and/or take a temperament test before participating.
Training hikes take place around mid-afternoon, but please keep in mind that pick up/drop off times will vary, based on which dogs are scheduled to attend any particular hike.
Space is limited, so reserve your spot in advance!
More hikes coming soon!
Pricing varies based on location, training goals, and reactivity. Please reach out for a quote.
