Mental Stimulation is key…
Many dog owners don’t understand the importance of Mental Stimulation in the care of their pet. Mental stimulation is even more important than dog walking or physical exercise. By incorporating mental stimulation into our dog walks you will see a marked improvement in your dog’s behavior, ease of training, reduction in unwanted behaviors, and he will have a calmer, more balanced disposition! Many behavioral problems are the result of isolation, boredom and insufficient exercise.
Mental stimulation starts with good, clear, leadership but to us it means challenging your dog with new tasks, using less verbal language and more body language, adding fast paced agility leash work so they pay attention, offering various rewards for positive behaviors (sometimes organic treats, sometimes positive verbal and sometimes play-attention and belly rubs). We also choose different trails daily to keep the sights and smells interesting and fresh! We change up everything daily with enthusiasm so the only ‘routine’ in our dog walks is the pick-up and drop-off. Private sessions with you and your dog are a great accompaniment to our dog walks and will really help with training and your leadership of your dog!
