WHY PROVIDE YOUR DOG
OFF-LEASH MOUNTAIN ADVENTURES?
An exercised and socialized dog is a happy and well-behaved dog. This is why providing your furry family member with ample exercise and socialization is so important.
With work and society's busy schedule it’s not always feasible for us to provide our canine companions with the exercise and play time they need and deserve. Plus, most dogs really don’t enjoy being isolated and left at home alone for long periods of time, so being able to provide them with an outlet for their energy and social needs while you are away at work or on vacation goes a long way in creating a healthy, happy and balanced dog.
The intent and focus of these walks are for your dog to be free and off-leash where he/she can socialize, play, explore and enjoy all the wonderful sights and smells that the mountain forests have to offer.

SAFETY ASSURED WITH
EXPERT BEHAVIOURIST/DOG TRAINER
HANDLING AND CARE
We are dog behaviourists and experts that have been operating on the north shore for over 8 years. We also only take dogs that have no major behavioural or social issues so your dog will be exposed to only balanced and friendly canine companions. We are canine first aid certified.
Your dog's safety is of the upmost importance to us and, as such, he/she will only be under the expert care and guidance of one of The Dog Dudes (Dylan or Darijan). We do not hire any other dog walkers to handle our clients’ dogs.
We will first meet with you and your dog(s) to assess his/her temperament, obedience and compatibility with the other dogs to ensure safety.
We only take a maximum of 6 dogs each at a time. We often bring our pack to make sure your dog is guaranteed friends to socialize with. We are also canine first aid certified so that we are equipped to handle any emergency situation. We are licensed, bonded and insured.
The first few times your dog joins us on the mountain adventures we may use an extendable leash until we feel that we can trust your dog’s connection to the pack and responsiveness to our leadership – but this usually happens very quickly. It’s important that your dog is wearing his/her collar with all of his/her identifying information so that he/she can be easily relocated in the unlikely event the he/she becomes separated from the pack.
