Healthy and Fun Hikes for Dogs in Kamloops
Does your dog need to get out of the house and get rid of some mental and physical energy? My Balanced Dog offers Adventure Hikes. Our hikes are hosted by Jessie and her team, and their canine companions. Jessie has taken the Dog Safe first aid course, has a lot of outdoor experience, and continually educates herself in all aspects of dog training.
We will PICK up your dog and DROP them off at your home, so you don’t have to worry about anything. ** Just come home after a long day at work to an exercised and tired dog! We offer hikes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; let us know what days you would like and we will see if we can accommodate as we only have so much space each hike. Hikes are anywhere between 3-12kms a day depending on terrain and dogs present.
** within reason. Contact us to find out which areas we are able to pick up and drop off from.
What do you need to do?
Call us to set up a Meet ‘n’ Greet. We will come to your house and meet your dog. We will go over how the pick-ups and drop-offs work, and hike information.
We will also send you the application forms to fill out before our Meet.
Can ANY dog go?
Dogs must be social with people and at least somewhat social with other dogs. We will go over any concerns you might have during our phone call. Dogs should know their name and be familiar with recall words, however, they do not need to be perfect at recall as we do on-the-hike training with them.
Because we work hard to have stable packs, we do not accept any drop-in dogs. We offer a 6-hike pass for $150.00 plus GST.
