Join Nancy Tanner, for a day of training and discussion, to prepare you and your dog for back country hiking and wilderness first aid.
Ready, Set, HIKE! is celebrating its 4 Year Anniversary in the back country, so we wanted to share our information in a full day workshop. A great opportunity for the beginning thru avid hiker, as well as trainers, City Planners, looking to add a new program to their curriculum! This program doesn’t teach people how to hike, we assume if you know how to walk, then hiking will be a breeze! RSH prepares dogs and their owners to use trails responsibly while enjoying the back country.
*Self-control in the car is where the hike begins
*Trail etiquette – multi use trails, what are you responsible for?
*The Back Country is not a dog park, how to change what your doing
*Working on specific behaviors all dog/owner teams should have before stepping out onto a trail.
Directionals, recalls in the great outdoors, off trail stays, between, trail fetch, behind, trail passing, and more!
*Creating a hiking partner – how far is too far? Working on space
*Right of Ways
*Trail choice – knowing you and your dog’s ability
*Seasonal, dry, wet, high, low hiking – benefits, considerations? You bet!
